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.

I've never been to the physical location, but I was asked to rate their service. This star review is a measure of their online customer service, not the physical location.

Wow! What a refreshing experience, to be able to get help at 7am in the morning - and on WhatsApp! Their offering also way surpasses my current supplier, can't wait to move over!

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

Richard, Elvirna, Kate, Larry, Rhulani, Germaine and Thulanie to name but a few Afrihost support staff very friendly,helpful and professional 5 Star rating for them. Please note Elvirna has gone above and beyond the call of duty and I feel should be rewarded with a bonus for all her hard work.

There support is effortless, I stopped offering hosting service and would send customers to them, while I focused on the website and email accounts.

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

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.
