Hi Margaret

It will really depend on your usage needs, if you use a lot of data, uncapped could be best for you, but if you don't think you will use that much, capped could be a better option as it will be cheaper.

My recommendation is to start with a fairly small capped account, like the 20GB package: https://www.afrihost.com/site/product/adsl_capped?src=website_nav

if you feel you need more, you can easily upgrade your package via your ClientZone.

Both Capped and Uncapped perform exceptionally, but again, it will depend on what you want to use it for.

Modems are not included, you can have one delivered to you with Afrihost, you can sign up via this link: https://www.afrihost.com/site/product/adsl_modems?src=website_nav

Line rentals are not included either, you can get one here: https://www.afrihost.com/site/product/adsl_lines?src=website_nav

Unless you take a bundle, the price will then be inclusive.

I hope that helps, have a great evining.

Hi Margaret

To get an ADSL line you should at least have a voice line installed at you place by Telkom. You can then sign up for an ADSL package from Afrihost voa the link below:


Uncapped is best for high usage browsing and downloading. It may be subject to shaping depending which uncapped package you select. The link is below: https://www.afrihost.com/site/product/dsl_uncapped?src=website_nav

Capped is ideal if you do not want shaping and need a package with specific data amounts. The packages are below:



Once the Netgear routers are back in stock you can get order them on : https://www.afrihost.com/site/product/adsl_modems?src=website_nav
