cost of internet access

If staying in moldova for a few months, how much is the internet? Note that I wouldn't have phone access or television access, but in the United States, even if you dont have phone access, internet companies still come out and install internet for 20 dollars per month. Someone was telling me that internet in moldova is 50 USD per hour. Could this be correct? It seems a bit high.

"Staying in Moldova for a few months" effectively means living there. Issues to do with living costs are not travel questions, so you need to research this sort of thing on sites aimed at (foreign) residents of Moldova, e.g.:
- [original link]
- [original link]
(which says new subscribers may have a long wait: you would HAVE to have "phone access" IF using ADSL, which requires a phoneline whether or not you want a fixed phone; and digital network - IDSN - requires cable to be installed even if you don't want cable TV service, so it also depends on the property you would be residing in.)
Or use a forum aimed at expats in Moldova, rather than travel website, e.g.:

Where will you be staying? If renting an apartment you will find some will have "Starnet" already installed, you may just need to resume payments. Orange Internet is readily available on a yearly contract at 250 lei per month, about22 not so quick but adequate and of course mobile. A friend of mine who visits regularly purchased and paid for a one year contract straight up, he has access to the internet as soon as he arrives every time. You will see many people with i-pads, they all have 3/4G.
