I'm an Afrihost Customer and would like to know if there's a way you can make the top-up bandwidth a little bit affordable?

We have introduced the cheapest DSL topup data ever in South Africa - slashing our standard top up rates to R5 per GB. This means that if a client reaches their monthly cap they can get extra GBs for the remainder of the month at the never seen before price of R5 per GB. This is not a special or a promotion. This is now our standard topup retail rate and it is here to stay. Until now, we have been running 2-for-1 Topups where the effective rate per GB has been R14.50 per GB - which was one of the cheapest top up rates in the industry.

Our standard top up rates are R99 per GB. While 2-for-1 topups are running clients will be able to top up at an incredible R49.50 per GB, the lowest top up rates in the market* - and without signing a long term contract or paying a large upfront lump sum. 2-for-1 Topups will become available at certain times during the month, at which point the offer may be extended. Clients will be able to access 2-for-1 Topups in ClientZone, our mobile App or via SMS, in the same way that they currently manage DSL Topups.
