More about LTE-A

What is LTE-A?

LTE-A stands for LTE-Advanced and is more reliable and delivers true 4G speeds. LTE-A is 2-3x faster than regular LTE.

What speeds can I expect?

The MTN (Pure LTE) Network averages between 10-150Mbps. Telkom's LTE-A Network averages between 20-40Mbps. Average speeds remain device and coverage dependent and are determined by the external environment around your home and where the route is situated in your home.

Can I use this LTE-A service anywhere?

The Fixed LTE service is designed to be used at your home, and the SIM card will be locked to the location you provide and your Fixed LTE services will only work at this location.

General questions

Do I need to sign up for a contract?

No! At Afrihost, we don't lock you into outlandish contractual commitments. All our packages are month-to-month and can be easily cancelled if you change your mind.

What happens if I sign up in the middle of the month?

All Fixed LTE packages are charged pro-rata. Data will also be allocated pro-rata.

For example, if you sign up halfway through the month you will pay half the price and receive half the data for the rest of the month.

How long does it take to activate after delivery?

Your SIM card should be active within 30 minutes after delivery. In extreme cases it can take up to 48 hours, but this is highly unlikely. Should you have trouble connecting after 30 minutes, please reboot your device and try to connect again. Please contact our Support team if you do not have a connection after 48 hours.

Why are only certain devices allowed to be used with Pure LTE (MTN)?

Afrihost can only allow devices which have been network approved by MTN and have identified a range of devices which specifically suite a Fixed LTE offer, and which are sometimes offered by competitors. This range of devices includes:

  • Huawei B525
  • Huawei B612
  • Huawei B618
  • ZTE MF286

Please note that Pure LTE (MTN) will only work on the above approved devices. If you insert your SIM card into a device that has not been approved by MTN, your SIM card will be blocked and you will lose internet access. You will then have to contact Afrihost Support to get your SIM card unblocked.

What happens if I sign up in the middle of the month?

All Fixed LTE packages are charged pro-rata. Data will also be allocated pro-rata.

For example, if you sign up halfway through the month you will pay half the price and receive half the data for the rest of the month.
