Its a very broad question, you will get one person say chose this ISP then another says no that ISP sucks chose this one.

But I can say that i vouch for Afrihost on vuma, the thing is if your infrastructure is kak then you are going to have kak and blame the ISP which most people do.

20/20meg for R817

@cavedog would you know if Balwin uses active ethernet?

Problem with Afrihost on this specific provider is that they are R118 more expensive than the competitors.
I have another property with them but doesn't make financial sense to stay with Afrihost

Lol i'm in the same boat, have 2 properties with Afrihost and have a third that needs fibre. Looking at going with Cool Ideas based on the forum support and pricing as you've mentioned.

If they are good enough I will move my other 2 as well.

It's GPON and in most cases can be a shared ONT too. New Balwin clients are almost always a migrate in as the ONT is installed by Balwin when the property is build

I was going to ask this question as well as Fiber is finally being rolled out in Wellington.

The infrastructure is Frogfoot and I am currently on Afrihost.
Any horror stories regarding this combination?

You should consider RSAWEB when looking for an ISP with excellent customer service, we have a 4.4 google rating, not only do we ensure you get the speed you pay for, but it stays reliably fast – even during peak times.

Not to mention we won't break your bank account. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
