All round wonderful service and connectivity! Thank you Afrihost! Its not often that a service provider is 'easy-peasy' - it normally ends in a battle, BUT NOT WITH AFRIHOST!

Afrihost is always quick to attend to enquiries. Siyabonga did just that. Courteous , thoughtful and patient in handling the enquiry. Much appreciated.

Still need work, but I'm a give benefit of doubt... Due to the fact that, I'm very fussy and specific about what I want, so if I'm still onboard than 5 stars is less than what you'll deserve.

I have to place on record, I am over excited and satisfied with the impeccable service from afrihost and the after hours service is excellent, I have spoken to few consultants and said to them they must report my good rating to their manager's. I'm amazed, my order was delivered and installed and activated in a week. The installation and delivery process was quick. I have referred my neighbor to sign up with you guys and helped him with the signing up process on the online application. Please keep your standards high at all times, I must admit the afrihost App is user friendly and everything as a client we need to know is on it. Keep up the good service and I wish you guys well and many more signed on happy client's. 👍🙏😁

The support staf from Afrihost is very helpful, especially on Whatapp. You don't wait long and if they can assist they refer you to the correct person who can assist.

Now this is 21st Century ISP! I am get pure Fibre, no shaping, no throttling, 30Mbps/30Mbps at R799, a super fast 3Gbps Wifi router for free and the application was all online within 5 minutes. No calls, no nonsense. Then for support they have an absolutely functioning whatsapp chat line with quality staff. I can say nothing bad about these guys.

Awesome network service, if I do have a problem it gets sorted the same day. Would recommend Afrihost to anyone and they way cheaper than your big mobile companies. On top of it if you have an Mtn sim you don't need to get an extra sim you can use all the products relating to your mobile. Thanks afrihost for the awesome service.

I have dealt with many service providers before but Afrihost is on top of their game. Every time i go to their whatsapp chat im positive to get great service, all the agents i have dealt with are the best. Lesley M was just awesome, patiently took me step by step while setting up the router. Well done Afrihost, you make this sad life bearable 😃

I had nothing but excellent service in my time with them, the only reason I moved was there inability to match pricing with there competitors. These days pricing means a lot when clients are scraping the bottom of the barrel, all due to circumstances .

I have been with Afrihost for over 5 years. Amazing service! Takes less than 2 minutes to upgrade, downgrade, change debit orders details etc. The app is very user friendly and easy to use. The Whats app helpline is quick and issues are sorted out immediately. I haven’t found better voice and data pricing. Well done Afrihost!

I’ve recently changed to Afrihost. I relocated and had to book a reinstallation. They were quick to act and arrange a team to come and do the setup. Installation team was friendly and the after hours support is also friendly. Good rates too!

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.
