There is no better ISP than that of Afrihost. Down to earth, logical, on the edge of cutting tech and innovations make them a blessing to deal with.

Have been with Afrihost for a number of years now and even migrated with them to Fibre. They are very helpful and I would recommend using the Whatsapp support service as it works very well. We have had extremely little down time so their up time is excellent

Afrihost has been the best ISP I've been with. I've been their client for around 6 years and I've been happy all that time. Great service and prompt response

Was nice to deal with afrihost... Unfortunately im moving and they don't have a service there at the moment... But ill highly recommend the services they offer at Afrihos. Also their reaction time to get our fiber up and running if something out if their control happened like someone broke a pole and snapped the fiber cables was really outstanding. I used them for 2 years and could not fault their service once

Chatting to a consultant was an absolute bliss. Richard assisted me very efficiently and he managed to get my issue resolved in a couple of minutes. Happy that you introduced the Whatsapp chat as a mode of communication with customers. Service at your fingertips.

So far as a new client I am very impressed with the service and the call center agents and whatsapp agents were all very helpful in helping me solve any enquiries I had.

At first I didn't know where to proceed after I got my account (clientzoned) activated but then I contacted the online help desk with whatsapp and it was quick and easy.

I've been a long time customer of Afrihost. They have been the best ISP in terms of service I ever experienced. They also have one of the best support systems and will always try to help you until your problem is solved. Awesome company!

Network installation was done fast and professional. Keep using Quinton and collegue from Britelink - Vumatel, he is very polite and professional, minimum messing where they worked. Very clean installation. This is for an uptime sensitive business, so I will be glad to evaluate and comment in the near future. I am a new customer with Afrihost so service still to be seen. .

Afrihost is the best service provider considering how people are complaining about internet service. I would highly recommend them. Your staff is always friendly on call or whatsapp. I'm really impressed. I'm so glad I chose you as my service provider!!! Stay healthy.

Their Client Portal offers everything you need for web hosting and takes a lot of the hassle out of setting up a domain and hosting package. Support staff are also friendly and knowledgeable.

What an experience! I decide to collect my router myself as I was too excited to wait for delivery. As soon as I entered the building, I felt this vibe of happiness and excitement. I couldn't help but notice the beautiful break/lunch area set out for the employees. The representative who assisted me (unfortunately his name was to long to remember) was extremely helpful, friendly and made me feel right at home. Thank you Afrihost for the great experience today and for looking after your employees so well!

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.
