SA’s Afrihost hits network migration hitch

South African ISP Afrihost reports that it is experiencing problems with its ADSL migration to a new network in partnership with MTN.

In a notice posted today, Afrihost said: “This morning we began our ADSL migration to our new network and unfortunately the migration was not 100% successful. The problem is being attended to with the highest priority and we will notify you once it has been resolved.”

Afrihost has been planning the move to a new ADSL network custom built for the company. The network is intended to be fully redundant, with multiple IPCs across South Africa. The ISP last week won the MyBroadband award for ADSL ISP of the Year in South Africa.
