How to migrate your Fibre line from another provider to Afrihost

In order to successfully migrate your Fibre to Afrihost, you will need to process what we call a Fibre Migration.

Cancel with your current Service Provider

You will need to notify your current ISP and cancel your current services with them. Most ISPs require a 30 day notice period. You may be charged a cancellation/migration fee if applicable.

Once your line has been released by your ISP, you can sign up with Afrihost.

Please note. The release of your line may take some time. Afrihost has no control of the time frame it may take for the release of your line from your previous ISP.

Provide Afrihost with your UID (Unique line ID)

You will then need to provide us with your UID (if relevant) which can be updated in ClientZone directly.

Or you can go to your existing provider’s site, choose Afrihost as your ISP and click on activate.

Each providers UID is different here are some examples:
