I have been dealing with Afrihost for many years, and have always found their products to be very comprehensive and competitive. The backup service has always been very good to excellent. I have never experienced poor service, either personally or technically.

I've been with afrihost for I think 8 years now. Today was the first time I encountered an outage that meant actual loss of service for more than an hour, and they were quick to assist me when I needed it. The problem still exists at the time of writing this, but they did reassure me that their engineers are actively working on restoring the service. They haven't failed me yet, so I trust them when they say service will be restored ASAP.

Service is competent and professionally driven. There is a high regard to help consumer understand 'fiber' jargon. Love the immediate response on social media. Great product. Anton Gilliland

Very easy to contact. Fast efficient service and competitive pricing. Easy to check online on your account and to change services as well as upgrading or downgrading. Best ISP in my opinion as others dont ever get back to you when you try and contact them. Also brilliant deals available.

My experience with Afrihost has been stellar for the most part. I do remember a few hiccups where I had to get their attention on Twitter, but having had the worst possible customer experience at another ISP recently, I realised that Afrihost is on another level. Keep it up.

One of the best, if not THE best, ISPs in South Africa. After MWeb's horrible service and customer support, Afrihost is a breath of fresh air.

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.

Amazing Afrihost with the whatsapp contact centre which allows you to always be in touch but not have to hold on for long. I can now log an issue during work time and not sit on the phone. Your operators are super helpful and efficient. It truly is a pleasure dealing with you guys. A special mention to Enoch in finance and Sakhile who helped me tirelessly to get up and running. You guys are leaders in customer service

Very professional place. Well laid out and their process for lining clients up with a consultant is top notch. You won't wait long and their security is good too. Parking can be a bit of a problem of they're very busy, but otherwise conveniently located.

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.
