Which Unlimited Data Plan is best for the things you plan to do?

Some online activities need more bandwidth (Kbps) than others. For example, streaming movies  needs more bandwidth than simply browsing the internet. But with Afrimax’s Unlimited data plans, every package gives you the bandwidth you need for the recommended number of users or devices to do more or less whatever they like. [*]

 * NOTES APPLICABLE TO ALL DATA PLANS

  • Simultaneous video streaming on all active/connected devices is not feasible on the Afrimax’s Data Plans, because of YouTube and other content platform’s minimum throughput guidance for buffer-free video streaming;
  • Downloading video content (where permitted by law) and playing this back from a local device is feasible on all Afrimax Data Plans and is a more efficient means of enjoying video content on Data Plans with lower throughput speeds;
  • See also notes 7 & 8 to Afrimax’s pricing table for Data Plans.
