I'm looking in changing to one of Afrihost's Fibre packages but unsure which provides the best latency internationally.

They have:
Home Uncapped
Premium Uncapped
Priority Uncapped
Capped

Currently on Telkom LTE Uncapped I always get 180-200ms internationally, so if that is the norm on the above packages I certainly would change. Can anybody with Afrihost Fibre confirm if it is so?

I doubt whether you will get better than that on any consumer-grade connection unless you are prepared to pay R12,000+ per month for 2Mb low-latency international.
