No, unless you want to pay through the nose. You can stream most of the time but will buffer and be of poor quality video. Don't forget your VPN! - May 2018 will pay through the nose but internet is fine though for streaming, web surfing etc. - Sep 2017

It's expensive and not very high speed. They are working on a cable connection from Europe but that will take a while longer. - Sep 2014

No high-speed; 2mps (I've never seen it that fast) with no download limits costs about US$120/month--more providers are coming up with packages but I don't know them. - Jun 2014

High Speed? That's the overstatment of the century. Even though a high speed cable has been coming for years, it's still not active. 512KB is about the best you can do and it's extremely expensive. - Aug 2013
