    Rain LTE-A vs Cell C LTE-A

    I'm done with Rain, there is no light at the end of the tunnel for us. Rain has caused me so much unhappiness I will rather reactivate my 4mb/s line with telkom. But seriously, where I live my only options are max 4mb/s adsl or lte-a. So my question is I am considering moving away from rain...

    What is an acceptable speed while been throttled?

    I migrated from a DSL line to a 50mbs fibre line (Afrihost/TT-Connect). I have exceeded the 250GB quota allocated each 30 day’s which means I get throttled each day during peak times usually from 6pm-10pm. I understand why I get throttled, I understand that I can change packages to a premium...

    SA Digital Villages + Afrihost experience

    Hi Experience share: I moved to a new complex in Lonehill, Jhb. Only option was SA Digital Villages (SADV). Google ratings are pathetic and HelloPeter probably worse, so I was not hopeful at all. I actually wanted to join MTN Lonehill as they have a specific contract in this area. Stayed...

    Kudos to Afrihost and Openserve in Irene

    The Openserve fibre coverage map indicated that we have fibre available on 1 April (it was not an april fools joke). I put in an order on 2 April with Afrihost for 20mbps uncapped fibre. On Friday morning I got a call from Openserve informing me that they were coming to install my fibre. I...

    Afrihost mobile data down since Saturday

    On Saturday Afrihost’s mobile data went offline, and is still offline. No communication from them to me explain what is going on and what they are busy doing to resolve it. I am very disappointed in how they are handling this.

    Afrihost customer banking details compromised?

    Has anyone else experienced that your banking details have been compromised since updating it with Afrihost on their clientzone? I requested a answer from AH in this regard, as to recent server data breaches - they never replied.

    Fibre line installed but no ONT Device - What now?

    Hi All, So I applied for Fibre from Afrihost using Openserve, got my router delivered and a few weeks later an OpenServe technician arrived onsite to perform the Fibre installation. So all that went well except that the OpenServe was requiring an "order" number from Afrihost to complete...

    Why is Afrihost Support so slow and bad

    Good day to everyone on this forum I used to use Afrihost Capped DSL, and was fairly happy with them. I tried out another provider for about 6 months, and when I came back to Afrihost, I was absolutely shocked by the way their support seems to have deteriorated. I was overbilled on my...

    Afrihost Rain LTE-A Alternative

    Hi, I switched "up" from my asdl to LTE-A with Afrihost towards the latter part of last year. Besides the delivery, speed, signal and service issues :mad:, I have a few a questions I'm hoping the community can help with. Come the 6 months period, if their service has not improved, I'm...

    Rain LTE via Afrihost - Possible network tampering

    Hey All, Switched to Rain LTE via Afrihost two months or so ago, and I have to say it is terrible. Their support of the service is terrible, the speed is not at all what was advertised, and the stability(even with a ethernet connection) is horrible. Packets are constantly being dropped. At...

    Rain LTE/LTE-A Routers - Stock Availability

    Hi all, I signed up for Afrihost's Fixed Wireless Deal on Friday the 16th of February, with the free Huawei B315 Router, as it will suffice for my needs, but I have been told that the order is "Delayed by Distributor", which after chatting to their support, revealed that the IS no longer has...

    Afrihost RAIN seems inactive

    I bought the Fixed wireless Promo from afrihost and got it delivered on the 8th of Feb 2018. I have perfect coverage. When I viewed the router via the browser login, the sim appeared inactive with no network bar (grey'd out). Log multiple support tickets to Afrihost and didn't get a straight...

    Afrihost - Worst Customer Service

    Afrihost & MTN - Worst Customer Service Following my previous mybroadband post, I have not received any response from Afrihost on this platform. I also sent through a PM that has not been responded to. I took some time to write out everything that has happened up until now, for the sake of...

    Afrihost worse than Telkom?

    Afrihost worse than Telkom? Yes, Afrihost is far worse than Telkom or any other service provider. I was charged R529.35 at the beginning of January 2018 for a fibre line I never received- endless emails, complaints still no refund- still no-one contacting me to sort this out. According to...

    Afrihost/MTN Refusing to blacklist stolen device

    My iPad Air 2 Wifi & Data was stolen in the first week of December last year. I have been trying to have it blacklisted for two months but Afrihost has constantly made excuses for not doing it. Now Afrihost has stopped responding to my emails altogether (for the last week). In the last two...

    Afrihost & Pathetic service

    I have no words to describe my utter disappointment with Afrihost's service. The only reason I've not moved to another ISP is that they are probably all the same. They all have great technology and infrastructure etc but they all employ people that are completely useless and disinterested. They...
