There is a quiet storm brewing on the South African broadband horizon! Amidst the deafening silence that many potential broadband subscribers face when they cannot get DSL service (or cannot afford the hidden costs), we will be setting this weirdly normal situation right by making Fixed Mobile LTE the only choice!
Fixed Mobile doesn’t seem to make sense, right? But what really doesn’t make sense for many prospective clients is the downside of fixed DSL service - high installation costs, ongoing rentals (especially for a voice line they don’t intent to use) and often long waiting periods for infrastructure or ports in their area. However, many subscribers still need the networking functionality and stability of a traditional DSL router, which many Mobile WiFi devices do not offer.
We now offer a Mobile Data router with many of the features that a household or small office requires, with benefits of affordable Mobile Data with no installation or fixed rental costs. The Huawei B593 supports LTE download speeds up to 150Mbps (and upload up to 50Mbps) and also offers 4 LAN ports, 2 USB ports (for data share over WiFi and USB Printer Sharing) and 2 RJ11 (Telephone Ports) to help make use of the VOIP and SIP across supported devices. This nifty device can also connect up to 32 WiFi devices simultaneously, and offers WPS one touch WiFi sync for supported devices.
The B593 also offers advanced features like multiple SSID broadcasting, DHCP grouping, QoS, Parental Control and other powerful networking tools. The router comes standard with 2 aerials for better reception, but can also be connected to a fixed external antenna (and Afrihost can connect clients with a reputable installer where possible). The device retails elsewhere for up to R3,000 (based on Google search results) but we will be selling this amazing device for an incredible R1,999 once off. Clients will be able to combine the device with the Mobile Data package of their choice. The SIM and device will be delivered FREE of charge to their doorstep (RICA will be required for deliveries with SIMs).
We will also be treating the first 200 clients who take up this offer to a special introductory price of just R1,499 - that’s a whopping saving of R500 (which could buy over a year of data, depending on their package)!!
Mobile Data clients can sweeten the deal by joining Afrihost Plus+ and cashing in on 2-for-1 Topups and Double Data on their Mobile Data package, for just R99pm (which also includes Simfy All Access and an additional 500MB of Mobile Data per month).
Fixed Mobile Data packages go on sale from today!
