Uncapped really uncapped without being throttled...

Do you have uncapped services without being capped with lets say 60gb per month and without throttling...

I need an uncapped package that never throttles or without any cap that has been reached...

Hi Danie23


"truly uncapped" packages do not exist ,there will always be a FUP (fair use policy).


I would advise going with a capped package to suite your day to day data requirments excluding downloads , since Afrihost offers uncapped unshapepd data from 12am to 8am you should set your downlaods to comence during that period.

If you on a normal uncapped package then no but Afrihost don't shape unless the network is busy and the demand is there so either way it's a win win

Afrihost provide the best internet experience we can. Unfortunately, sometimes this involves factors outside of their control, like the quality of the copper on your DSL line or high demand on your local Telkom exchange, as well as demand on the Afrihost network. So performance may vary from time to time, depending on the factors mentioned as well as others.

Hi, only the home uncapped accounts are throttled.

Premium uncapped and business uncapped are never ever throttled. Premium uncapped however is subject to shaping.

Shaping is when certain types of traffic is slowed down such as P2P and HTTP downloads.

Real time traffic such as streaming are never shaped.

hope this helps.
