Afrihost is the best. They have time and patience for the average users and know how to talk to people. I’m always amazed about how they handle us customers. Keep up the good work guys. Even the amount of time they take to resolve an issue; it’s just amazing. You can just tell that they know what they are doing.

I engaged with Thulanie on the whatsapp line earlier today on a new promotion. Quick response and extremely professional. The service at Afrihost has always been on point. Never delays and very prompt in dealing with any issues related to connectivity.

Afrihost has been my cost-effective Internet Service Provider of choice for a few years and the mobile wireless connection has always been fast and reliable; the accounts and invoices clear and prompt; and service responses to queries when required efficient. I am sorry to be having to leave them due to failure of the Network provider and no exact replica available through their offerings .

I absolutely love the WhatsApp support line. Sometimes takes a while to connect to an operator, but certainly beats holding on the line listening to bad music, or an operator dropping your call after holding forever!

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)

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...

Amazing Afrihost with the whatsapp contact centre which allows you to always be in touch but not have to hold on for long. I can now log an issue during work time and not sit on the phone. Your operators are super helpful and efficient. It truly is a pleasure dealing with you guys. A special mention to Enoch in finance and Sakhile who helped me tirelessly to get up and running. You guys are leaders in customer service

Have had nothing but a good experience with Afrihost. Unlike other providers, when there's outages, which do happen, Afrihost is very quick to resolve them with little to no connection interuptions when a problem is being resolved. Stable fibre line, good ping. Afrihost delivers on what they promise and you get what you pay for, which is still the best price out there for the outstanding quality of service you recieve!

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.
