Global Connectivity

We have improved our international capacity to multi-Gbps connections on the WACS, Seacom, EASSy, Sat-3 and SAFE cables. The Durban IPC breaks directly onto EASSy while Johannesburg and Cape Town's IPC traffic is routed onto a guaranteed multi-Gbps WACS cable.

National Network

Inter-city links on our core network infrastructure to improve routing of traffic for local services and between Terraco Data Centers. The bi-directional links between Johannesburg/Cape Town, Johannesburg/Durban and Cape Town/Port Elizabeth are connected by high speed fibre links.

IPC Capacity

Our DSL network IPC capacity is massive across South Africa's three major cities: Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg. Our DSL network is one of the largest in the Country!

How we bring the Web to your Home

Your Home

Your PC, Tablets, Smartphones, Game Consoles etc. connect via Wi-Fi or Ethernet Cable to your local DSL connection.

Your modem connects to the Telkom network via your DSL enabled Phone Line. You are then routed via Telkom's IPC from Telkom's Network to the Afrihost Network

Afrihost DSL Network

IPC is a connection owned by Telkom which connects their DSL infrastructure to other Service Providers. You break out of Telkom's Network onto Afrihosts National Network via IPC.

World Wide Web

Afrihost acquires International connectivity via Undersea cables such as EASSy and WACS. Your connection is then routed on these undersea cables to your data's final destination.
