Afrihost is an excellent web hosting company with great products at the right price and support to blow you away. Will recommend them to anyone.

I have personally experienced Web Africa to be one of the fastest ISP's in South Africa, with the best support I've had to date. Their service and quality products are well worth the price differences of other ISP's.
