Get Unshaped Capped Data

Guaranteed Unshaped Capped Data at All Times

 

Want to stay Unshaped at all times Guaranteed? Simply choose our Unshaped Capped Data option. When signing up, you can choose to take your full data allocation as potentially shaped bandwidth, or reduce your allocation to half of normal as Unshaped Capped Data.

Shaping on Capped DSL

To put things in perspective, Capped Data is the last broadband product in the queue for potential shaping. Meaning we first apply shaping to Home Uncapped Packages, then if necessary Premium Uncapped, thereafter Priority Uncapped, and as a last resort Capped Data. Thus, the likelihood of Capped Data being shaped is extremely low.

What does this mean for realtime services?

Regardless of which option you choose, Realtime Services like Web browsing (HTTP and HTTPS), Live Streaming (YouTube, ShowMax, Netflix etc.), VOIP (Skype), Email and Terminal services (SSH) will never be throttled nor shaped at any given time. Your connection speed will be as fast as your DSL line allows, for Realtime Traffic.

And what about Non-Realtime Services?

We may sometimes shape Non-Realtime Services during our busiest times. These Services include HTTP Downloads (downloading a file from your browser), Torrents and NNTP.

The Small Print
General
- DSL Line Required to make use of DSL Bandwidth. If you need an DSL Line, sign up for one here
- Data speeds and latency may be affected by factors outside of Afrihost’s control or demand for bandwidth at any given time.

1 Monthly Data Rollover
Monthly Data will only expire at the end of the NEXT month. This means that if you haven't used all of your monthly data by the end of the month, it will rollover to the next month. For example, if you get 10GB per month and you have 3GB left at the end of February, this 3GB data will rollover to March, giving you a total of 13GB to use until the end of March. Just another way we make your data go even further.

2 Topup Data Rollover.
All Data Topups purchased will only expire at the end of the NEXT month. For example, if you buy a data topup on 5 February, your topup data will only expire at midnight on 31 March - giving you even more value.

3 Free Data
- After-Hours Data: Monthly Capped DSL Packages BELOW 300GB per month (excluding 1 GB) will receive Free, Unlimited After-Hours Data between Midnight and 8AM every day until 31 January 2017, at which point the offer will be revised or extended.
- Free-Time: Monthly Capped DSL Packages of 300GB+ per month will receive Free, Unlimited Internet usage between Midnight and 6PM every day until 31 January 2017, at which point the offer will be revised or extended. Click here for more information on Free-Time and a full list of Terms & Conditions.

4 Unshaped Capped Data
- Paid Monthly Capped DSL Packages get Free Unshaped Double Anytime Data until 31 December 2016, at which point, unless the client chooses Unshaped Capped Data, will be switched to double their current allocation using Shaped Capped Data from 1 January 2017 onwards.
  • I am a client for more than a year now and still can't believe how efficient and comprehensive the Afrihost app & web clientcentre is. Want to upgrade or downgrade your package? No problem and the billing system works perfectly with no hiccups, all automatically! Need help? No problem either. Their response time 24/7 is so fast I have missed a few replies thinking it was just the automated responses…

  • Line speed and latency are comparable with other top hosting ISP and reliability is also decent, but the pricing is just a leap apart from the rest. By far the best value for money for an ISP currently in SA.

  • Your picing is great, and your downtime is better than any other ISP I have dealt with, but what really sets the Afrihost team apart is the Customer Support. Your technicians are friendly and helpful, and are exceptionally hard working. I work in IT with a multitude of customers and all those who use Afrihost feel the same way. I cannot recommend anyone better! Great job guys, keep up the great work!
