“Afrihost recognizes that the barrier of entry for many consumers is not so much the cost of bandwidth, but rather the total cost of a broadband solution,” said Afrihost CEO Gian Visser.
“By introducing the most affordable ADSL bundles South Africa has ever seen, Afrihost is launching an aggressive attack against the high cost of fixed bandwidth installations.”
Existing Afrihost clients will immediately benefit from the new bundled offerings. “Any existing client with an ADSL line and uncapped product can ‘bundle up’ and move to the new product range and save money,” said Visser.
Afrihost said that it will monitor sign-ups and the continued viability of the pricing, and may at some point adjust pricing for new signups. “However, any client, new or existing, who moves to the new bundles will retain the pricing they have signed up for initially,” said Visser.
The new uncapped ADSL bundles are available immediately from Afrihost.
