I've walked a long road with Afrihost, we've had our ups and downs. I must say that things are going very well these days. Support is fast and good. All has been going well for some time now and I am happy.

The Whatsapp is a great improvement, takes the emotion out of it. Afrihost training must be good as their call centre staff is of the best. Through all my dealings with Afrihost, over the last few years, I have never had a concern and there team’s professionalism, skipping the chit chat getting the job is commendable.

Afrihost responded very fast on their WhatsApp support, The agent I spoke to was patient and made sure I understand things and my problem was solved just as fast.

We moved over to Afrihost on a friends recommendation about 8 years ago, and have never looked back or regretted the move. Fantastic service, zero down time, specials/promotions happen often, Their 'clientzone' interface is intuitive and easy to use/manage your account. It's simply the best ISP I've been with (I've had my fair share of others), and I'm looking forward to many more years with Afrihost. Thanks to everyone at Afrihost that has made our experience this good so far!

Sometimes, there are hiccups as in any human-designed and manufactured product or system, but in general I am very satisfied with Afrihost's service and complaint response time and resolution.

Afrihost might be the only ISP that really has its support offering working well. I've used it a few times, and they always get me sorted quickly. What more is there to say?

I just had the best chat experience ever with Afrihost WhatsApp chat with a Lady called Nkosana. She answered every question fully, she explained things that I didn't understand. I'm exceptionally pleased with Afrihost as a product and with regard to their service. Thank Nkosana and Afrihost!

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.
