No. If a client has a contract with MTN, they cannot attach it with Afrihost.

Good day.

If you get 1GB from MTN you are still able to get our Month to month data packages, but this will require you to switch accross

Access Point Names (APN) on the device you have the sim card in.

Our data only works on our APN which you will need to manually confirgure on the device after purchasing our mobile data package.

This will ensure that your MTN data does not get used up if your APN settings are set on afrihost as default and once depleated you may then change the

APN to MTN on your device to make use of the 1GB you receive from MTN.

The APN configurtion instructions are sent via email after completing the sign up.


Thank you.

Yes, technically you will be able to use both. You will, however, need to change between mymtn and afrihost APNs to select which data you are using.
