Is Fixed Wireless right for you?

Compare DSL and Fibre to Fixed Wireless powered by LTE‑Advanced Technology

DSL and Fibre
Setup can take days, weeks or years  
Not all areas have DSL or Fibre coverage, and sometimes even when they do, there are logistical issues resulting in very long turnaround times to get a line to your home.
You need to plan ahead  
You need to decide ahead of time where you want to put your modem and connected equipment because of wiring. Also, if you move house, it means you'll have to go through the installation process again.
LTE-Advanced
No setup required  
If you have decent network coverage, you're covered. Forget about laying copper or fibre to your door, just plug‑in and you're good and ready to go!
You can move your connection easily  
Changed your mind about where you want your study? Moving house? Just pack up your modem and plug it in at its new location. Simple as that.

Have Any Questions?

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?

You can generally expect speeds between 10–50Mbps. Please note, however, that speeds are determined by the external environment around your home and where the router is situated in your home.

Can I use this LTE‑A Service anywhere?

Yes, provided you are within the Rain Network coverage area.

Do I need to RICA my SIM Card?

Yes. You will need to have your original barcoded Identity Document, as well as a valid proof of residence. Visit our RICA Information page for detailed information.

How long does it take to activate the mobile services 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 at support@afrihost.com if you do not have a connection after 48 hours.

Can I use the included SIM Card in another device?

No, unfortunately the Rain SIM Cards are locked to specific device types that are pre-approved for the Rain Network.

How does the Save up to R1999 on Hardware Costs Promotion work?

Sign up now and get up to R1999 off your Hardware Costs, but only while stocks last!

All new signups done on or after 12 October 2017 qualify for this promotion.

Maximum of 3 signups per legal entity (business or individual).

Should you cancel your Fixed Wireless package in less than 6 months from signup date, or your account falls into arrears, you will automatically be charged a cancellation fee of R999. (Only applicable for signups done on or after 05 October 2017).

How does the Get up to 1 Month FREE Data Promotion work?

You get pro-rata data for the month in which you sign up.

For example, if you sign up on the 1st of the month, you will get 1 month absolutely free. But, if you sign up on the 25th of the month, you will get the 5 remaining days of that month free.

Maximum of 3 signups per legal entity (business or individual).

SIM & Device packages unfortunately do NOT qualify for this promotion.

Should you cancel or downgrade your Fixed Wireless package in less than 6 months from signup date, or your account falls into arrears, you will automatically be charged a cancellation fee of R999.

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.

Can I upgrade or downgrade my package?

Yes. All Fixed Wireless packages can be upgraded or downgraded.

Note that package changes will only be effective on the 1st of the following month, regardless of when in the month the request is made or whether it is an Upgrade or Downgrade. This is a restriction from Rain.

Does unused data roll over at the end of the month?

Monthly Data will only expire at the end of the NEXT month. This means that if you haven't used all of your monthly data by the end of the month, it will roll over to the next month.

For example, if you get 25GB per month and you have 5GB left at the end of February, this 5GB data will rollover to March, giving you a total of 30GB to use until the end of March.

What happens to rollover data when I upgrade or downgrade?

If you change your package (upgrade or downgrade) you will forfeit any monthly roll over data.

For example, let's say you have a 25GB package and in the middle of February you request an upgrade to a 55GB package. At the end of February you still have 5GB left of your 25GB package. This 5GB data will not roll over, but will be forfeited.

At the beginning of March you will only receive your new package data allocation (55GB). Once you are on your new package, any data that is left over at the end of the month will roll over as usual.

How do I view my usage?

You can easily check your Data usage at any time through ClientZone or via our Mobile App available on Android and iOS.

How do I top up my data?

  • 1. Log into ClientZone or our Mobile App available on Android and iOS.
  • 2. Select the Connectivity section.
  • 3. Navigate to the Fixed Wireless package you'd like to Top up.
  • 4. Choose the Topup Type and Amount and finalise the transaction.

For how long is Topup data valid?

Data Bundle Topups are valid for 30 days from purchase.

For example, if you purchase a Topup Bundle on the 25th of July, the Bundle will expire on the 23rd of August at 23:59.

Any unused Topup Bundle will be forfeited at 23:59 on the expiry date.

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

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.
