Unlike the other ISP's, Afrihost does not offer "free" routers to new customers as these deals are typically linked to a 12/24-month contract and Afrihost seems to prefer to give the customer the flexibility to cancel the contract with less than 1 month's notice.  They do however offer DSL modems for sale on their site at normal prices.

I suggest you rather bu the modem/router upfront and then choose an ISP.  The worst thing you can have is a contract with a poor ISP that you canno tget out of easily.

We do offer routers for sale (unfortunately not for free). We usually recommend the Netgear DGN2200, as it is the most cost effective model, as well as offers great benefits like multple SSIDs, USB storage access over WiFi and it also is one of the strongest brands in the router market.

We currently sell the Netgear DGN2200 for R995, which includes Free pre-configuration to your Afrihost credentials (you literally just have to plug it in) and we also deliver the router to your doorstep.

The router carries a 2 year manufacturer's warranty.
