Afrihost VDSL header

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.

    lols, im paying at R1350 for a 10meg line with mweb… pitty its not available in my area

  • still way too expensive.

  • It’s new Tech for SA of course It’ll be expensive…

  • Bl1zz4rd

    Really nice pricing in comparison to 10MB Mweb costs. Thanks to Telscum’s ancient copper network and the fact that I don’t have an exchange near me, despite living in a dense Southern Suburbs neighborhood, I can only get a max of 2MB on my line. No point in even getting a 4MB package, let alone 20/40MB. Sad, sad times.

  • sad country this.

  • ArchieChoke

    Be happy at least you have access to copper, some of us have been waiting 2 years just to get access to copper and still cant get. Telscum has created a world where I dont decide where to live/ Start a business based on normal factors, but rather on “can I get access to copper”.

  • Bl1zz4rd

    Where are you living that you don’t even have copper?

  • ArchieChoke

    Midrand, have Vodaworld just down the road, Neotel across the
    highway. Midrand is like a Farms nest for WiMax dishes, they are erected on almost every building in that area. Even a big company like bytes can’t get copper. The largest laughing matter is seeing the Dark Fibre Africa service vehicles testing their Fibre cables all over the area.

  • Bl1zz4rd

    So very sad. Can’t wait to leave.

  • where you going bro? Next year september I’ll be sitting in UK with a 100 mbps line.

  • Bl1zz4rd

    Awesome. UK too, but I’ve gotta finish my degree first. Another 2 and a half years for me unfortunately. Which part of the UK?

  • brad coetzee

    I know a few people who have moved overseas and the first thing they mention is internet speed. Makes me think that people are moving away for faster internet which is actually unbelievably sad.

  • Wish I had that sort of money lying around… And wereVDSL area…

  • Devon, there at the south side of England.

  • F*ck Telkom

    It is sad, but if you go to a store and they dont give you the service you want/need you go somewhere else were people are willing to give you that service.
