Just had great service from Afrihost. My service was suspended but the problem (of my own making) was quickly resolved by Afrihost using their user friendly WhatsApp service. Bill

Always satisfied, they are not perfect, just like Vodacom is expensive - but they have the best customer service for me, and that's why I say 5* to Afrihost!

Afrihost is the best, their fibre network is the best I have ever used and their agents are on point; always ready and willing to help. I also like the WhatsApp chat, very easy to use and convenient for me.

Service is good value. Works well and so nice to have other methods to contact company (like Whatsapp) and not have to deal with a call centre

I've never had issues with Afrihost. Their service has always been friendly, prompt and very capable of helping you find a solution to your problem. I have hosted with them for many years, personally and more recently on a business level and its been great! Definitely recommend them. They've shaken up the internet industry with their exceptional service. Keep going guys!

I had a problem with my debit order payments and used WhatsApp to interact with one of Afrihost's technicians. His name is Larry and found him to be knowledgeable and had patience with my repetitive questions.

I’m a fan of Afrihost and have many products with them - data for my phones, Fixed LTE, ADSL and soon I’m getting Fibre. They are innovative and their support is usually good. I would find it difficult to move away from them as a service provider because they’ve been awesome since day 1.

Mpho.b stayed on the line with me from 4:20pm to 7pm! Well past normal hours. He was tenacious and tried various things to get my service working. As a non-IT person, he was clear and patient with my fumblings. I had a complex issue and he managed to resolve it. Thank you! Also LOVE the whatsapp channel for fault finding. Well done on this initiative.

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.
