Afrihost recently moved to a new DSL network infrastructure which has drawn praise from clients for its performance. It followed this with a price reduction on Capped DSL packages, making its Double Data promotion on Capped DSL permanent and also offering more data for clients with Afrihost Plus+. This value was further enhanced with the introduction of Zero-Rated After Hours data for capped packages.
Now uncapped clients can choose between Afrihost’s existing Uncapped products (rebranded as Premium Uncapped) or the more affordable new Home Uncapped Products. Afrihost also offers an unshaped, uncapped option in Business Uncapped.
Premium Uncapped products, from R197 per month, offer unshaped real-time priority services (such as browsing, gaming, VoIP, etc) and non-realtime services are only shaped during periods of high network demand.
Home Uncapped products, from R97 per month, may be throttled once a threshold value is exceeded (based on overall network demand). If the threshold is not exceeded in the specified period, Home Uncapped will perform as a Premium Uncapped product.
Thresholds are specific to each product and are calculated on a 30 day rolling window.
Home Uncapped will also be available in Bundles with DSL line rental included, from R149 per month.
Home Uncapped will offer many of the same familiar benefits as Premium Uncapped such as Turbocharge, to completely un-shape and un-throttle bandwidth in increments of one hour. Home Uncapped clients will receive 300 free Turbocharge minutes per month (from the second month after signing up). Thereafter clients may purchase topups in increments of R29. The number of minutes assigned will depend on the product speed purchased. Clients with Afrihost Plus+ may also assign additional benefits to double their Turbocharge minutes.
