How DSL Broadband Internet Works

How We Bring the Web to Your Home

Your Premises

Your Computer, Tablets, Smartphones, Game Consoles etc. connect via Wi-Fi or Ethernet Cable to your local DSL connection.

Telkom (Openserve) Network

Your modem connects to the Telkom (Openserve) network via your DSL-Enabled Copper Landline. You are then routed via Telkom's IPC from the Telkom (Openserve) Network to the Afrihost Network. IPC is a connection owned by Telkom (Openserve) which connects their DSL infrastructure to other Service Providers.

The Afrihost Network

We've built a state-of-the-art Fixed Broadband Network which connects local Points-of-Presence with the World Wide Web.

The Internet

Using our advanced Broadband Network we connect you to the Internet using multiple high-speed local and international undersea cables.
