I've only had good experiences with Afrihost. They are always quick to give assistance and their service has been amazing. I would recommend them for sure. That's my experience in Cape Town at least

Excellent service from Afrifost Just signed up with them, and had a problem connecting. I used there What’s up chat line and delt with Rethabile who was online with me for almost 3 hours, trying every possible method to resolve the problem, I eventually got connected and able to login to other websites, only unable to acces one site, the afrihost login webpage, which he then logged a call with the relevant department to sort out the problem. Well done Rethabile for the excellent work, and to afrihost for an effective WhatsApp chat line

I have been a Afrihost customer since 2009. The best ISP I have ever been in partnership with. Whenever I move from province to province I always give them the first choice to provide us with the best internet services. Very happy with the support structure and the prices are reasonable. Very professional support team. It is people like Palesa that will make me come back to Afrihost. Keep up the great work.

Have been with Afrihost for more than 3 years now and I love their service. I'm on a month-to-month contract so I can cancel any time, but I have never felt the need to cancel. The internet signal is reliable and I've always had positive experiences with the customer service team. :)

The best hosting provider. They will assist you in all your queries. They can assist via email or WhatsApp, whatever you're suitable with. Need to mention that they have affordable hosting services. #HappyClient

I needed assistance. Contacted Afrihost via their WhatsApp helpline. Query was handled promptly and professionally by knowledgeable agent (Thabiso D). Given the attitude of so many other 'service' (?) providers, this was a very pleasant surprise.

Excellent service, I have a pure fibre contract with Afrihost and connectivity issues are resolved quickly and the whats app assist option is perfect 👌🏾 Highly recommended!

All in all best ISP I've ever had the pleasure to deal with! Some problems here and there but that's due to factors such as copper theft. Have a LTE data bundle linked to my phone, as does my wife, fantastic value for money (MTN)! Would stay with them for a fibre contract but I live in a one horse town and unfortunately they aren't a provider. Can't go wrong with them!

Installation and activation of our fiber was taken care of quickly. Minor issues were solved very rapidly by their very helpful and friendly support team. Love that the company puts so much effort into providing high quality service. Just a general sense of going the extra mile and attention to detail. Please continue!

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?

Yes, Pure DSL packages are 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.
