I have been with Afrihost for more than 10 years. i seldom had to contact them to sort out problems as things just work but when i did, their service levels were top notch. kept me abreast of what was happening and followed up even though problem solved. keep up the excellent work.

Clientzone takes the hassle away of calling in and their whatsapp options answers any questions or issues quickly. Afrihost is a great service provider, very happy with our fibre at this time.

Poor service from the Agents I dealt with when cancelling my account. Dealt with 2 different Agents both on phone and WhatsApp, they showed no empathy and poor customer experience. I was relocating and needed my current line to cancelled which they could not help without any attempt to do so. Now I am unable to cancel my Telkom line because Afrihost is unable to release the line from their side even though I no longer am using their services. In this time and age, I find this customer experience extremely poor. Won't be returning back to Afrihost in my new residence just because of this poor experience.

I just had the best chat experience ever with Afrihost WhatsApp chat with a Lady called Nkosana. She answered every question fully, she explained things that I didn't understand. I'm exceptionally pleased with Afrihost as a product and with regard to their service. Thank Nkosana and Afrihost!

Their service is great. With Afrihost ClientZone I can check, change and control my account. Their WhatsApp service is super helpful too and you don't need to spend hours on the phone. I'm a longtime client and not going anywhere anytime soon.

I had a query about one of the domain names registered in my name. Logged a query on ClientZone. I had a response in short moment but unfortinately I got busy with other things ... and could only complete my query after 17:30. Then I called and was redirected to using WhatsApp.afrihost.com. I got helped by Mike and was sorted within minutes. Thanks Mike. Excellent service Afrihost.

Afrihost whatsapp service - So convenient, quick and responsive. Got all my queries handled far more efficiently than going through the call centre. And all outside of normal working hours. Definitely the way I will engage with Afrihost in the future. Well done.

Been with Afrihost for 9 years last month, looking forward to many more years. I have always been sorted out in a flash whenever there is a glitch in the service, and I recommend Afrihost to anyone who wants a great experience and reasonable prices. Thanks Afrihost!!

Afrihost has been managing my mobile resources and home wifi for quite a few years now and I have always had a good experience. I ported my number from one of the 'big two' cellular service providers who didn't give good customer service, and have never looked back. Calls are cheaper for me. And my account is essentially prepaid unlike the 2 year contracts I used to have.

Using the WhatsApp chat with afrihost tonight at 19:31.. Within 28 minutes of contacting the person on call my issue was solved.. No hassle, no complaint and with a serious level of professionalism.. I have recommended your bussiness to many and will definitely continue to do so.. Thank you for your efforts and willingness to assist no matter the amount of mistakes made from my side that made the process more difficult.. You guys actually rock..

Compared to other service providers, Afrihost is very efficient. My Internet has always been good. When there's a problem they are very accessible and helpful.

Recently upgraded my fibre service online. Was configured within less than an hour. Call logging on WhatsApp also a very good experience. Very happy with Afrihost.

First time Fibre user. Signed up with Afrihost. Amazing experience. Seemless. Staff are proffesional, friendly and willing to assist. The Whatsapp assistance option was very useful.

Getting started with Pure DSL

How is Pure DSL different from other DSL products?

Unlike regular DSL, you do NOT need to pay for a voice landline that you don’t even use. With Pure DSL you only pay for the DSL line rental and data - saving you more than R200 every month!

How to get connected to Pure DSL

Follow our Getting Connected guide for step-by-step instructions.

How long will it take to get connected?

Once you’ve signed up for a Pure DSL package, Openserve will have to install the new DSL services at your premises. This can take up to 14 working days.

Checking Pure DSL coverage

How to check if you have Pure DSL coverage in your area

Use our Coverage Tool to check if DSL is available in your area.

Will all line speeds be available in covered areas?

No, not all line speeds will be available in all covered areas. This is because of infrastructure restrictions on Openserve’s side. Please use our Coverage Tool to check which packages are available in your area.

If you do not have Pure DSL coverage in your area

If DSL is not available in your area, we’ll check if any of our other data solutions are available. You can also choose to give us your details and we’ll let you know as soon as one of our Internet solutions becomes available in your area.

Shaping and prioritisation

Are your DSL packages shaped?

No, all Pure DSL packages are uncapped, unshaped and unthrottled. There are no usage thresholds so you can use as much data as you like, whenever you like. No throttling or shaping will be applied.

General questions

Is the price of the DSL line included in the package price?

Yes, the price you see is the price you pay! All Pure DSL packages are bundled, so the price is for both your data and the line rental, all-inclusive.

Will I have to pay a setup fee?

No, if you sign up with Pure DSL today, we will cover the setup fee of R999. Please note that this is a limited offer and Afrihost reserves the right to change this at any time.

Do I need a copper line to use Pure DSL?

Yes, you’ll need an existing copper line at your premises to connect to Pure DSL. You do not, however, need to pay for voice line rental to get connected to Pure DSL. You only need to pay for the DSL line rental and data.

Please note that because Pure DSL is a separate service from regular DSL, Openserve will have to install the new DSL services at your premises. This can take up to 14 working days.

I do not have a copper line, can I get one installed?

Unfortunately Openserve will NOT do any new installations of copper lines.

Can I use my current DSL modem?

Yes, you can use any DSL-ready Wi-Fi modem with Pure DSL. Need a new modem? Check out our DSL Modems and Wi-Fi page for more information.

Will my Pure DSL package be locked to a single location?

Can existing Afrihost DSL clients get Pure DSL?

Yes, existing Afrihost DSL clients can sign up for Pure DSL.

Please note, however, that Pure DSL is a service separate from your existing DSL Internet. You’ll have to sign up for a new package via our website and Openserve will have to install new DSL services at your premises.

Follow our Getting Connected guide for instructions on how to get Pure DSL.

Please note that if you change from an older Afrihost DSL package to Pure DSL, you will NOT be able to change back.
