Guys and gals,

I'd like to know which is the best Mobile ISP for gaming. One important requirement is that it must allow port forwarding, as I plan to use it for gaming through a Direct IP connecion using Radmin VPN.

And to clarify what I mean by "best", I mean which mobile ISP provides the best network performance I.e Latency, Download/Upload speed etc. If anyone can help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Yeah, I'm on MTN at the moment, apparently only their contract customers have the option for unrestricted APN.

I forgot to mention I'm on Pre-Paid, sorry about that :p.

We have Data on MTN


1GB free each month for 3 months and after that you get 1GB free if you spend R69 or more.

By default we have natted these connections but I can arrange a public IP for you. You can look at our MTN fixed LTE but those are month to month packages but also offer a public IP.

Okay, what would the requirements be of me in order for you to assign a public ip to me. I'd like to stay on prepaid as well, so no contracts for me right now.

The only mobile ISP networks in RSA im aware of right now which allows for port forwarding on prepaid are Vodacom, Cell-C and Telkom.

Our APN works on MTN prepaid.

You simply sign up and send me a pm with the number. Once it connects with the Afrihost APN I will request the natting to be removed so you can do port forwarding.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but how does one take advantage of the free mobile data? I signed up for mobile data yesterday, my SIM has been successfully provisioned...

Are you using the Afrihost mobile app?

You can claim the 1GB free in the Afrihost app each month.
