Hi there,

You will not need to buy a new dongle or modem.
However you will need an Afrihost data sim card to insert into the device and ensure you are using the Afrihost APN (afrihost)

Please follow the link to see the mobile packages availble and what suits your need

Whether delivering or collecting you will need to present your RICA documents.  
These documents include:


  • Bank Statement or Municipal Bill (not older than 3 months)
  • Cellphone or Retail Account (not older than 3 months)
  • Existing lease, Rental or Credit Agreement (Valid for the current Year)
  • Insurance Policy (Valid for the current Year)
  • Current TV or Motor Vehicle License document that includes your name and residential address (Valid for the current Year)



  • Green bar‑coded ID document
  • Smart ID
  • Temporary ID certificate issued by Home Affairs
  • Passport

A driver's license is NOT an acceptable form of ID for RICA.
