Hi there,

You are able to use VOIP on your fibre line however, unfortunately, Afrihost do not offer VOIP services.

If you require further assistance please email: support@afrihost.com
or contact Afrihost support on 011 612-7200

Thank you

Good day Afrihost,

I would like to meet with you in this regard.
Clearly your clients have a need for VoIP and I understand that VoIP is not your core focus, but since it is ours, maybe we could look at providing this service to your clients.

If you are interested, feel free to email me adam(at)smartcommunication(dot)co(dot)za

Good day Bandicoot,

Transferring your Telkom line to a VoIP system is very easy and saves you a lot of money.

It would require you to only have a SIP account and a SIP enable device.

I am able to provide you with both SIP account and SIP enable device.

To transfer (PORT) your Telkom number to us is a once-off cost of R150 ex VAT.

The SIP account is FREE.

The SIP enabled device varies from device to device, but can be obtained on a 12 Month Full Maintenance Rental.

The monthly number management fee is R99 / m ex VAT.

If you are interested, feel free to email me adam(at)smartcommunication(dot)co(dot)za

I had the same question and just found out and signed up to FreshPHONE https://www.freshphone.co.za/. It's pay as you go VOIP and one can port one's existing landline number to them. Rates are very reasonable. One can use one's mobile phone through an App over any reasonably fast internet connection and/or buy a specific handset.
