Afrihost has released its 20Mbps and 40Mbps uncapped VDSL prices, with savings of between R1,500 and R2,700 over some of their main competitors.

Afrihost will be offering a full suite of VDSL products, including VDSL line rental, uncapped data, and bundled products. Consumer and business services will be available.

Afrihost’s uncapped VDSL accounts will follow similar business and shaping policies as their ADSL counterparts.

This means the uncapped VDSL products will be semi-shaped (according to available capacity), while business VDSL packages will be guaranteed unshaped during office hours.

Turbocharge sessions will also be available to Afrihost’s consumer uncapped VDSL subscribers.

Afrihost’s VDSL products will become available by the end of next week.
