My query was assigned to Shingirai, it was very frustrating and took over an hour. Shingi was super patient and professional. I was amazed at the outstanding level of customer service I received on a Saturday late afternoon, when their offices are supposedly closed. THANK YOU SHINGIRAI and Afrihost that your excellent customer service does not keep business hours!

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

I was assisted via WhatsApp. The waiting time was a bit long but eventually I got the assistance and I think Palesa's service was excellent! I always get my queries solved with Afrihost in spite of long waiting time. The fact that there are now multiple channels to get help through is also a fabulous idea. Thanks Afrihost!

So far as a new client I am very impressed with the service and the call center agents and whatsapp agents were all very helpful in helping me solve any enquiries I had.

Despite delays due to increased demand, the support agents were very helpful in getting me connected. They were highly recommended and didn't disappoint.

Afrihost is the one ISP that does not tie you to them with a long term contract. They even installed my fibre connection and gave me a wifi router free of charge and with absolutely no strings attached. They do however keep you tied to them by providing very good end-user support. There staff members are all knowledgeable, friendly and efficient in the manner in which they provide support.

Tshepo M was so helpful assisting me to set up my Dad's phone. He took time to check everything and instruct me accordingly. An asset to your company indeed. Looking forward to dealing with Afrihost!

I am using Afrihost for hosting my domain as well as channel my data through them as I find this to be much cheaper than using the normal service provider data packages on my telephone. The assistance that I have received is always quick and I mostly make use of the Whatsapp call centre service, this saves time and money. Not just a great product but also a great service

Ordered Afrihost fibre online only 6 days ago....and busy watching Netflix tonight! Fast, efficient and professional service at a reasonable rate....Well Done Afrihost! Happy that I took advice from another satified customer to go with Afrihost (and yes this unsolicited....just that good prompt service is not often encountered nowadays)

Was the most incredible experience. What normally took weeks for other such service providers took a few minutes. It was like a Live Call on STEROIDSSSSSSSSSSS

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.
