Had a query regarding signal on my router dropping repeatedly after a month of working fine. Help on the Wattsapp chat by Ricky S was set up quickly and easily. Ricky rebooted their server without asking me to repeat anything and was pleasant, polite, competent and quick. Love this kind of communication.

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.

I've been with Afrihost for over a year. I find NO fault. If I've had problems, I find it VERY simple & easy to access help. I find their staff friendly & competent. Furthermore, dealing with/talking to the staff doesn't make me feel like a complete illiterate. Recommend whole heartedly (:

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...

The best ISP out there. when a problem comes up (as rare as that is), it's always like your chatting to a mate. They have the personal touch of a small mom n pop ISP, with the support in infrastructure of a larger company. Highly recommended

Greg Pretorius was absolutely phenomenal. He is professional, courteous, very helpful and explained all the technicalities to me. He is most definitely an asset to Afrihost. Furthermore the receptionists were very professional and helpful and went out of their way to serve their customers water due to the heat.

I've been with Afrihost since 2017 and I have no complaints. Excellent service and I like the fact that there's no contracts to tie you down.

As a technically challenged person I normally confuse everyone trying to help me electronically, but today I was helped by Thabo from Afrihost in record time. He has been well trained by them on customer satisfaction and technically too. Afrihost is one of the very few companies I can clearly believe who understand their customers and do their utmost to help us.👍👊

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.
