What kind of infrastructure do you have, and are you aware of which backbone provider ?
Afrihost partners with quite a few of the players already in market

If it is one of the providers that Afrihost works with then you more than likely can, your best bet is to send an email to the provider and to afrihost, or just give them a call.

Afrihost works with several different last mile fibre providers so there is a high likelihood that they will be able to connect you.

Hi there :)

If you can sign up for your connection on our website, and we can credit you up to R4000 immediately if fibre is available in your area by one of our providers.

We have many providers that could potentially provide you with this service, and we add more every day :)

Please visit https://www.afrihost.com/landing/fibre/ and check the availability in your area. If however not, then just add your details so the providers can contact you once it is available.

Also, try to have all your neighbors and friends in your location to do the same; the more the merrier, the faster Fibre will become available for you.

• Please note that there will be an installation fee. (Each provider has their on own installation fee).

• If you are renting your property, you will need to get consent from your landlord, or body corporate. (we will need an Affidavit from the landlord)

• You can also select the type of package that you want.

• Afrihost fiber package includes an uncapped account.
