Always a pleasure to interact with Afrihost client services, via telecoms or WhatsApp or email. Responses are swift, agents are friendly, patient and very courteous. Been with Afrihost on different packages for almost 15th are now, and never have I ever encountered any issues that went unresolved with immediate affect. Really glad I chose Afrihost over all the other service providers!!!

Afrihost is by far the best ISP I have been with for years now. I especially love their awesome Support Team and the very easy and helpful "Afrihost ClientZone" site and mobile application where I can monitor everything to do with my connectivity and usage. Big ups to the Afrihost Team for their professionalism. You guys Rock!

Awesome customer service and use to have competitive prices, however i think over time they didnt bother adapting their prices(mobile data prices), and there are currently better offers out there. I am 100% positive i would've stayed with them if their prices were just better because like i said, customer service and satisfaction is better than any i have experienced before...

Afrihost is simply the best. Do not even think about Mweb they are nonsense. Afrihost is very timely in their response sometimes even on weekends. Their app is efficient as well. Top ups are fast and easy to do. Very good company to trust.

Always get timely assistance. Much better service than my previous service provider. I've been using afrihost for years for hosting and now will be switching over to theor fibre as well. Will always recommend. The WhatsApp chat function is also very easy and convenient to use.

You get to chat with a real human on whatsapp, not a bot, like most other internet service providers. Friendly , professional and efficient. Great rates.

Been a client for about 7-10years and have never experienced any issues. Have always received good service. Whenever I have queries or technical problems I'm usually assisted immediately be it via the help channels or via social media.

Great great great WhatsApp service from Afrihost consultant, Boston. You are awesome. Thanks so much for helping with my issue and for being friendly and polite.

Super amazing. Been with the service now for 5 years - starting with just email domain, then website hosting, now added wifi to the packages. Always available to assist (when it's not after hours), super friendly and efficient. Would totally recommend to other consumers looking for reliable and tech-savvy providers.

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.
