“We will be smashing our own record prices by up to 60%. We are also unilaterally upgrading 384kbps, 512kbps and 1Mbps clients to better speeds at even better prices,” Afrihost said in a press statement.
“While other prices will drop significantly, 10Mbps is clearly the show-stopper from R2,497pm to R997pm. That’s a saving of just over 60%,” said Afrihost.
Afrihost said that new clients signing up will benefit immediately from the new prices, while existing clients will be billed at the new rates as of 1 November 2012.
