Siphiwe was an amazing assistant. Great customer care. My experience with her was excellent. Good job I would recommend my friends to use Afrihost definitely.

99.9% Uptime. Seriously. These guys are amazing. I am currently paying for a 200Mbps UP/DOWN line, and every time I run a speed test, I'm telling you, I get 211Mbps SOLID. They're insane, go with Afrihost!

Signed with another ISP in Feb 2021. No successful installation with them so cancelled yesterday (27th May. Signed with Afrihost yesterday (27th May after confirming cancellation of previous ISP). Installation and config completed today (28th May!) Very happy to recommend this company as ISP

I have been a client of Afrihost since 2000 and I am amazed at how they have scaled up their service and offering. I host about 40 sites with them and also have a couple of managed cloud servers. Apart from their default voice message saying "We have had an influx of calls and can't take your call as soon as we'd like" that has been on for 3 years, there is NOTHING I don't like about Afrihost. (Support, Finance, Admin, Connectivity, Walk-in included)

The quality of service i've received from Afrihost makes me wonder if it's actually possible to do better than them... What would better actually look like? Thank you Afrihost for a phenomenal service always.

Ordered Pure Fibre 20 on 3 Dec. Openserve called on the 4th to schedule install and installed today 7 Dec. Just activated the my Fibre on my old B315 LTE router and it works! (while I wait for the new router I ordered to arrive). Love the WhatsApp support line, very quick responses. Love the ClientZone website. That was quick and painless!

It's all on the website of course, the help I needed, just not as familiar with jargon and such... chatted with Owen on Wgatsapp Chat, he lustened, paid attention and sorted my query. Did not feel for a moment that I was being dismissed with url's and figure it out. Glad I used the service, and met Owen.

Need help?

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.
