Hi there,

Please ensure your Samsung device is set to the correct APN in order to connect to the Afrihost network.
Please read this article for instructions - 


  • Go to Settings on the device.
  • Select Connections.
  • Select Mobile Networks.
  • Select Access Point Names
  • Select Afrihost, if there is no Afrihost option please create one. Click the Add button. 
  • Under NAME enter Afrihost
  • Under APN enter afrihost

Important: Ensure there is NO space before or after afrihost, all lower case!!

  • Click the Menu button (three dots at the top)
  • Select Save. 

Ensure the Afrihost APM is selected. You may need to restart the device to connect.
