Does Axxess Voice work on WiFi, 3G, ADSL, Edge connectivity?
The Axxess Voice service is entirely dependent on the quality of the Internet connection you are using when making or receiving a phone call. Which is why we only recommend connections that do not generally suffer from congestion or high latency such as FTTH (Fibre to the Home) or Fixed Home LTE. Other connectivity types, such as ADSL, 3G, WiFi or Mobile LTE will work. However, we do NOT recommend relying on these connectivity types as they are prone to congestion and high latency which result in poor call quality.
What do I need to use Axxess Voice?
An uncongested Internet connection such as Fibre to the Home (FTTH), Fixed Home LTE, or DSL.

Can I keep my Geographic Number?
Yes. Axxess Voice is a cloud-hosted service, which means you can take your number anywhere in the world. If you have Fibre or Fixed LTE, then you can cancel your Telkom landline rental and port your number across. This includes all South African numbers that start with 01, 02, 03, 04 and 05. Mobile numbers such as 083, 072 and 061 cannot be ported.
How long does the RICA process take?
It can take up to three business days. We will inform you as soon as your RICA application is approved, after which you can use your Axxess Voice service immediately.
What documentation is required to RICA my Axxess Voice Number?
You'll need to upload a copy of your ID or Passport and Proof of Residence. Proof of residence can be a utility or retail bill less than 3 months old. For example, you can use your bank statement, DSTV, phone/cell account etc.
What do I need to do to port my Telkom voice landline to my Axxess Voice service?
You will need to supply us with a copy of your Telkom telephone bill (please note that your account needs to be settled, or Telkom will not release your number) and an authorisation letter which will be supplied to you. Please note: you cannot port a number with a DSL service on it if the DSL service is not provided by Telkom. DSL service provided by other ISP's need to be cancelled first.
How much does it cost to call to an 087 number?
The cost to call our 087 number is dependent on the network you are calling from. For example, if it's a local call from a Telkom number to an 087 number they charge 67c per minute during office hours. We suggest you ask your service provider to supply you with their latest call rates.
Does it cost more to call an "087" number?
No, it does not cost extra to dial or for someone to call your own 087 number - it incurs the same cost as a normal landline.
Can I use it on my Smartphone?
Absolutely! You can use it with any compatible SIP/VoIP application for your phone. We suggest Zoiper - Free Version available for Android/iOS/Windows/Mac/Linux. Download here
