Afrihost has launched new fixed-LTE packages that run on MTN’s network.
The packages are called Afrihost Pure LTE, and the ISP is offering one month of free usage on a range of SIM-only and SIM + device deals.
The packages come with both anytime and nighttime data allocations.
Afrihost also offers several fixed-LTE packages which run on Telkom’s network.
Aside from data allocation and pricing, there are two notable differences between MTN and Telkom’s offerings.
To ensure optimal network stability, MTN’s fixed-LTE can only be used with an approved router.
MTN’s list includes the Huawei B525, B612, B618, and ZTE MF286.
Additionally, MTN’s night data is valid from midnight to 06:00, while Telkom subscribers can consume their night data allocation between midnight and 07:00.
The table below compares the monthly prices of Afrihost’s SIM-only packages on MTN and Telkom.
The first data allocation shown is for anytime use, while the equivalent night data allocation is the second amount shown.
