Had an issue with my internet connection, on a Sunday morning of all days, and the response from the Afrihost Whatsapp Support Service was immediate, professional and efficient. This was also the first time I had to log an issue after years of being an Afrihost client, and I was treated with respect and professionalism. Thank you for taking such good care of your customers and making us feel valued. Your service is excellent.

Normally I hear problems with internet companies, but the Afrihost Clientzone is extremely helpful and has been the best helping me set up migration. Thanks for the best service!

There's not enough typing space for my comment, thank you very very much. 10 out of 10 all the way is cutting way too thin. I would like to repeat my last visit to your offices as in 2017 to meet the gears in the machine.

I have used Afrihost for both LTE Internet as well as website hosting. Their customer service, particularly over WhatsApp, is phenomenal. I have never come across a problem that the assistant I was connected to wasn't able to solve. Would highly recommend

At first I was uncomfortable with the fact that the phonelines have been deactivated thus I cannot verbally interact to get my website problem solved. But the WA interaction was even better than a voice call...quick and painless. Problem solved within a few short minutes. ThNk you.

Easy app to see invoices, top up airtime/data, etc. Friendly and helpful staff ready on whatsapp to answer questions and assist with problems.

Excellent customer service (for all on a public holiday) the WhatsApp agent that dealt with my issue was awesome. I have been in the recruitment industry for +- 20 years specializing within the BPO and Contact Centre arena and i must say my experience today had left me speechless! Specifically in the manner the agent handled the issue. Its very rare to see innovative solutions based methodology being applied especially from an agents perspective and I must say Reitumetse well done in executing the following: you listened, confirmed, proposed, executed, test and problem resolution process was to the T well done.

Afrihost has amazing customer support. They attend to your questions promptly and on various platforms. I have used email and WhatsApp and both times my experience was good. If they keep up this great service I will be a customer for life!

My line had just been activated, but I needed to have the router from Afrihost in order to actually connect to the internet despite the line being "active". Dineo M assisted me to set up my current router to ensure that I have access to the internet until the router from Afrihost arrives! 10 stars!!! Patience and outstanding customer service!! Not disappointed that I made the switch to Afrihost! Thanks again Dineo M! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Need help?

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.
