I called in and then was directed to use the chat platform. I was a bit apprehensive at first but then I found the agents to be very helpful. They did not just tell me to do a standard router reboot, she kept asking me to run a few tests and even though she got me to realise a higher speed, she went the extra mile and checked the settings on her end and got me the actual speed I was paying for. Well done Afrihost, great platform and good on you for getting competent staff on the frontline. I would recommend Afrihost to anyone.

We recently switched to Afrihost and the task of transferring emails was an absolute smooth one! To the Support staff, and I would like to single out Pitsetsi - what a treasure you have in this person. Speaking as a "technically challenged" individual I was able to sort out my Director, Andrew Lamour's email and with your assistance I looked like employee of the year! Pitsetsi, you made both of us look good to someone that values perfection as the only standard by which he measures. I trust Afrihost realizes the value they have in you and appreciates the tenacity that you applied in getting the Apple Mac settings correct and sorted( not an easy thing to do at all) A big hearty THANK YOU from The Umtshayelo Foundation

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 Network averages up to 10-150Mbps. Telkom's Network averages up to 20-40Mbps.

Average speeds remain device and coverage dependent and are determined by the external environment around your home and where the router is situated in your home.

Can I use this LTE 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.

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?

SIM and APN.

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 with Afrihost page for detailed information.

Can I use the SIM card in another device?

Your Pure LTE (MTN) SIM card is only compatible with the LTE device supplied with your order. For SIM Only packages, only the following approved CAT6 devices will work with your Pure LTE (MTN) SIM card. Please note that you also need to be in the MTN Network coverage area.

Your Telkom SIM card is only compatible with the LTE device supplied with your order. Please note that you also need to be in the Telkom Network coverage area.

Do I need to change my APN settings?

SIM + Device orders - We will preconfigure the LTE device that is shipped with your SIM card - so you do not need to change any APN settings.

SIM Only - If you will be using your new LTE SIM card with your own device, please visit setup.afrihost.com for instructions on how to get connected. In some cases you’ll have to change the Access Point Name (APN) settings on your device, depending on the LTE provider you signed up for.

Managing your package.

Can I upgrade or downgrade my package?

Yes. All Fixed LTE packages can be upgraded or downgraded in ClientZone.

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 our providers.
