DSL and Fibre
Setup can take

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 Double Data Promotion work?

The Double Data Promotion gives you FREE Double Anytime Data on top of the normal monthly data allocation until 30 November 2018.

All new signups done between 01 August 2017 and 30 November 2017 qualify for this promotion.

Existing clients who signed up before 01 August 2017 will also qualify for the Double Data Promotion and will receive double data starting from 01 August 2017 until 30 November 2018.

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

Sign up before 31 January 2018 and we'll subsidise the LTE Wireless Modem, saving you up to R1999 on Hardware Costs.

All new signups done between 12 October 2017 and 31 January 2018 qualify for this promotion. While stocks last.

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, you will automatically be charged R999 for the modem, which you may keep. (Only applicable for signups done on or after 05 October 2017)

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?

Unfortunately not. Any unused monthly data will expire at the end of each month.

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.

Does top up data expire?

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 24th of August at 23:59.

Any unused Topup Bundle will be forfeited at 23:59 on the expiry date. Topup Data will always be depleted first, before your monthly data allocation.

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.

How does the Get up to 3 Months FREE Data Promotion work?

Get up to 3 Months FREE Data if you sign up for any SIM Only package between 07 November 2017 and 31 January 2018. You get pro-rata data for the month in which you sign up, plus the next 2 full calendar months for free.

For example, if you sign up on the 1st of the month, you will get 3 months absolutely free. But, if you sign up on the 25th of the month, you will get the 5 remaining days of that month and the following two months free. SIM & Device packages unfortunately do NOT qualify for this promotion. Standard R999 charged if you cancel or downgrade in less than 6 month.
