Fibre line speeds from 100mbps. 

Please note, fibre line speeds from 100mbps and above have the following requirements:

  • The LAN cable connected from the ONT to the WiFi router WAN port is recommended to be at least CAT 6 and above to handle the line speed and reduce the risk of any connectivity issues.
  • Ensure the router can handle the 100mbps+ line speed.

Step 3: Fibre Installation

There are three basic steps to getting Fibre, which begins with availability in your neighbourhood. Once the provider has done this initial installation, your area will be Fibre ready. The next step is to have a Fibre line brought onto your property. Once you’ve signed up for Fibre with Afrihost, the relevant provider will be in touch to help you get the Fibre line installed to your premises.

Best of all, you do not need a telephone line to use Fibre. Fibre connects via optical cables that carry data via light, which are completely separate from the Telkom copper wire network.

And you can even do this wirelessly across supported devices with the Afrihost Dual‑Band AC Wi-Fi Router, which provides an excellent coverage area and operates on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies for future-proof, cutting-edge connectivity.
