Our Shaped ADSL Internet access service is a Shaped Broadband Internet Access service, shaped according to protocol and therefore provides the main priority to Email and Web browsing internationally. HTTP is the protocol assigned to most Internet web sites.

This service is therefore mainly designed for surfing the web and retrieving or sending email / Gaming. Download shaping is only done during the weekdays when browsing of websites and mail are at the highest and priority is given to these protocols, At night time the shaping is then released on downloads, local traffic within South Africa is NOT SHAPED

With this service all international un-cached data is shaped. All international HTTP traffic is transparently cached for Shaped ADSL users. The following un-cached protocols are prioritized on the network: HTTP, HTTPS, FTP. Mail (POP3 and IMAP), SSH and TELNET. This means that protocols not mentioned above will receive a lower priority (shaped) on the network during the day.

On Monthly Shaped ADSL Accounts unused base traffic is NOT carried over to the following month, only prepaid traffic is carried over, prepaid accounts carry over traffic each month until used.

Frequently asked questions

Here's a selection of answers to our most popular questions.

What is ADSL ?

ADSL is a fixed line connection to the Internet via copper telephone lines.
There are two parts to adsl. - the infrastructure provider (Telkom) and the data provider (HOSTWORX). Telkom exclusively lays the copper lines and you have to have a voice line to get an ADSL line. Data is provided by an ISP (Internet Service Provider). HOSTWORX is an ISP.

ADSL is made up of two parts - data and line speed.

Data is measured in Gigabytes (GB). The higher the number, the more data you have.

Speed is measured in Megabits per second (Mbps). This is the speed at which your data will be carried across your connection. The higher the number, the faster the speed

What is Uncapped ADSL?

Uncapped ADSL is a type of ADSL account that has no data cap. This means that you can use the Internet without ever reaching a cap. But Remember that these uncapped dsl accounts are subject to fair usage guidelines to restrict those who abuse the network.

What is Capped ADSL?

Capped ADSL is a type of ADSL account that has a set data limit available for you to use per month. Once you reach this cap, your Internet access will be paused until you either purchase a top up data bundle, or if you have chosen an out of bundle billing package where you will be charged per MB used over your cap.

Which should you choose - Capped VS. Uncapped

It all depends on what you are planning to do online and how you feel about managing your data. HostworX is here to help you work out the best product for your needs. If you are an online gamer, your needs will be different to someone who just checks their mail.
