New Afrihost mobile voice prices unveiled

Afrihost has unveiled its new mobile voice service, which includes month-to-month and prepaid products. Users will be able to top-up both of these products.

Afrihost’s prepaid products are also valid for 12 months at a time.

Afrihost’s voice services run on MTN’s network, and will be integrated into its apps and Client Zone online portal.

Good news for existing mobile subscribers is that they can retain their number when moving to Afrihost by using the standard porting process.

Existing MTN prepaid clients will have the option to opt-in, and opt-out, of the Afrihost service.

Afrihost is fighting bill shock with a feature called Auto‑Limit. “We allow you to set a limit that actually works – with absolutely zero risk to you,” the company said.

Through Afrihost Plus+, mobile subscribers also have the option to double their monthly data for R99 per month.

Afrihost will launch its mobile products for a closed user group selected from its client base on 10 November. It will give more clients access as the week progresses.

MTN mobile rates

Afrihost said its rates stay the same no matter what package you’re on, “because we’re not trying to confuse you to charge you more”. Its rates are as follows:

  • Per-second call rates – 1.31c per second
  • Per MB out‑of‑bundle data – 10c
  • SMS – 50c Per SMS
