    Fixed LTE wireless

    Can anyone recommend the best fixed LTE wireless provider to move to? I am completely done with Afrihost and Cell C, very poor service from them. Nothing costly too as I am a student.

    Afrihost, hopefully you'll answer me here.

    We have been with Afrihost for a couple of months now and have an LTE-A package with 110 GB per month. On Sunday, 07 October, we were connected to our WiFi the whole day, but could not access the internet. I sent a support email at about 19h01 after my husband discovered that our data was...

    Dissapearing data

    I have had an Afrihost LTE Rain router and data package for close to a year now. Hardly ever ran out of data until now. Last month my topup bill was R3000 additional to the R1500pm package that I have. I have contacted Afrihost several times to find out what is going on but still no answer. My...

    Afrihost Fibre & support

    Hi Everyone, I used to be super impressed with Afrihost. We were a corporate client for years and I found their service levels to be excellent and we also set up a number of private accounts for ourself (myself) included. The last year and the migration to Fibre has been super frustrating: 1 -...

    AFRIHOST 160ms to eu.battle.net -> 190-200ms eu.battle.net

    How does this actually happen? After 6 months of having perfect pings, now its gone to ****, with packet loss in certain situations. A friend who lives 3 units away using Cool Ideas still has perfect pings... how does this happen? Getting irritated.

    Afrihost, I wanted to believe in you...

    TL;DR Cannot login to ClientZone. Need to change +27 to a 0 on my cell number of my Afrihost account so that OTP can be obtained. In order to do so, they want me to produce a little less than my soul :P...

    Afrihost capped fibre - No 300GB option

    I am on Afrihost/Openserve fibre with 20mbps uncapped home fibre. I have seen my usage hovers at about 200GB or just over that per month. I want to increase my line speed without dramatically increasing my monthly spend so was looking at 100mbps line with capped data . But Afrihost offers...

    Another Afrihost Exodus

    Its a sad day when you have to finally accept that it's time to move on. We have been having ongoing issues with being throttled during peak times to 10Mb download on a 100+ premium uncapped account on vumatel fibre. Off-Peak... no problems. After logging several tickets with all the test...

    Afrihost congestion (on OpenServe) getting worse

    hi, I've had my 20Mbit Afrihost connection since October 2017. I've been exceedingly happy with it, but things are starting to deteriorate. I've been monitoring my link latency since Jan 2018. It's been pretty good, but April is when the problems started. See the graph below for a trend...

    Webafrica throttling torrents on RAIN

    I would strongly advise anyone against getting LTE-A through webafrica if you are planning to make use of p2p. Torrents are being throttled to +/- 100 kB/s, everything else seems to be working fine. It's kind of ridiculous if you take into consideration that you are on a *very* small...

    Inaccurate Afrihost RAIN data

    Anyone else here having problems with RAIN data usage on Afrihost. In the last few days I have been told twice that my data is up while the clientzone shows I have 3GB over. According to Afrihost they have a problem but no indication of when this will be fixed. I ended up having to top up with...
