What you need to get DSL

To get DSL broadband in your home, you’ll need the following:

  • A Telkom line with DSL service enabled.
    If you have a phone line, we can get it DSL-enabled for you. If you do not already have a Telkom phone line, please contact Telkom directly to get it installed.
  • A DSL modem or router.
    If you don’t have a DSL modem, visit our Modems and Wi-Fi Routers page to see what devices we can offer you.
  • An Afrihost DSL data package.
    You can choose between either Capped or Uncapped DSL data packages.
