There are a few things that need to be done first to get an ADSL connection.
You must have a post - paid / excon (no contract) Telkom voice line installed before you can use Afrihost's services.
Please be sure you do not sign up for a contract with Telkom or any other service provider
You could either choose to get the ADSL and voice line installed directly through Telkom or get the ADSL line installed by Afrihost (this takes 14-30 working day waiting period).
You then need to decide if you wish to leave the line with Telkom and only get data through Afrihost, or you can move the line to Afrihost, for Afrihost to manage both your line and data.
To sign up for Afrihost ADSL line management
- Existing Afrihost clients will have to request this via Client Zone.
- My Telkom Lines tab
- Order ADSl line link.
- New clients will need to sign up via our website:
Please proceed to www.afrihost.com.
1) Click on ADSL > ADSL lines tab
2) Proceed with sign up
3) Order ADSL line (Either new ADSL line or transfer of existing ADSL line from Telkom)
4) Complete the sign up (Billing details, contact details etc...)
We will then process your order.
Please note that you will be charged a pro-rata billing when your line has been transferred to us, this process usually takes 10-14 days and your line does not go off in the process.
When signing up with Afrihost please specify that it is a new convert or migrate in from another ISP and we will ensure it is activated on your side so you are able to use data.
Afrihost does not charge for the migration from Telkom. Your costs will be the monthly line rental that will be paid to Afrihost.
If you receive a charge from Telkom for your line, they should issue a refund after you are successfully transferred.
If you have any existing products (Data packages etc…) with Telkom and would like these cancelled, you will need to carry this out directly with Telkom.
Please note that you are still liable to pay Telkom for the Voice Line Rental, monthly, as per Telkom's terms and conditions for voice line rental.
