I have relocated. I am told byTelkom that although I am still in the same zip code that I will be connecting via a different exchange and will therefore receive a different line number. How do I go about moving my Afrihost-managed ADSL line to my new address?

I am still waiting for Telkom (sigh) to setup my new telephone landline.

If you don't have a telkom line in your new place, then best is that you cancel the Afrihost management of your old line, and also cancel with Telkom - otherwise they're going to keep on billing you.  Unless the two properties are adjacent to each other, you are not going to be able to pick up the line and put it down in the new place.  Once you have a line, you can easily add ADSL to it, and it will be a new line as far as Afrihost is concerned.

I think you will need a new line. It would be too complicated to arrange a transfer to the old line I believe. I was in a somewhat similar situation. The population in Tokyo is so huge, that even moving to a neighboring street you will need to change all your numbers. Possibly, I am wrong, but this is how I think. If you know a different way to solve this problem, please let us know. It will be useful for everyone.
