Is high-speed home Internet access available? How long does it typically take to install it after arrival?

Yes, we upgraded to the fastest possible internet when we started working from home during COVID. We pay 75KM per month or $45/month and we can stream on 4 devices. You can have it installed before you arrive. - Apr 2021


Yes, ours was hooked up within a few days. - Dec 2017


Yes. It takes about a week to get installed if it has not already been installed before you arrive. Fairly stable, and you can stream. - Sep 2017


Easy to set up and reliable internet connection. - Feb 2017


Not really "high" speed" but it's cheap. - May 2016


Yes, but spotty. Weather affected service, and sometimes seemingly nothing at all messed with service. - Aug 2014


Internet is available through BH Telecom, which is awful. They have horrific customer service, and the speed is mediocre (good enough to stream, mostly). The qualification for being hired as a technician is to be someone's cousin. Don't expect assistance if you are using Apple products. - Nov 2012


Yes, but I wouldn't call it high speed. It's ADSL (speeds we had in the US over a decade ago). Everything is metered, and the biggest plan (20GB) is about $30/month. Going over 20GB -- which is possible if you stream video or download a lot of stuff (iTunes, etc) -- gets expensive. - Aug 2011


Yes. $45 a month. - May 2011


Yes - reasonablty priced. - May 2010


Yes. We got the highest speed and pay $30 per month. - Jun 2009


Yes. You can get DSL here and works great but it could be a little expensive depending on your use (different plans with different download/upload allowances). - Mar 2009


It is available, the quality differs. - Dec 2008
