    The uncapped is really cheap at R1,397 for a 20mb bundle. If you consider, I currently play about R1100 or so in total for a 10 meg line with uncapped, it seems almost too good to be true. How good is afrihost for gaming (specifically dota2, I currently use mweb and have no problems with it)?

    I had a bad experience with Afrihost, as I joined them in their network transition to MTN. I must add that their support system and staff was supperb throughout. I cannot vouch for them now as I haven't tested them out since they moved onto MTN's network. I am not a fan of AUP's and systems where u get throttled, but I think with prices like these one can only be tempted to give it a shot

    I have 2 accounts at the moment.

    1 with Web Africa and 1 with Afrihost.

    I use the Web Africa one more predominantly since I get lower latency Locally by about 10ms. However internationally Afrihost is quite perfect. They have good latency and I get full speeds on my international downloads as well.
