I've never signed up for ADSL before, what line rental option must I get from Telkom first?

+3 votes
Hi everyone, I just moved into a complex and I have to install ADSL. I know that we have a landline installed, though I've never used it and my landlord says we would not have a phone number until we sign up with telkom. I know afrihost help out with telkom's line rental, but I don't have a phone number, so I can't place an order. do I need to rent a landline from telkom first? I'm not sure what package I must choose from them 'cause their website is super kak.

I know this is super noob stuff, but I'm clueless.

Hey Captain

You will first need to get an excon line installed with Telkom where you will pay them per month for the rental of that voice portion and whatever calls you make. Do not sign up with them for ADSL as you will sign up for that on the Afrihost site.

You may sign up for a line speed on your ADSL and we will activate it for you on your line. Please see the packages here (each of our packages has a SIGN UP NOW tab beneath it: https://www.afrihost.com/site/product/adsl_lines

To determine your line speed you can contact us on 011 612 7200, send HELP to 32541 or contact our live chat guys so you sign up for the right line speed.

We also have capped data packages at https://www.afrihost.com/site/product/adsl_capped and uncapped ones at https://www.afrihost.com/site/product/dsl_uncapped

If you struggle to make sense of any of this contact us and we will walk you through it.

thanks Diggy, so do I just choose 'landline' on this page? https://secure.telkom.co.za/today/shop/home/plan/plan-variation-landline/
