You can visit DEKAL or one of DEKAL's authorised distributors or simply purchase a pre-paid card from any DEKAL authorised reseller in order to use our network. Pre-paid cards are available at any location where you see the "SUPERWIFI Cards Sold Here" sign.
How do I connect with my desktop?
This is completely dependent on signal strength in your area. If you have a very weak signal we have our SUPERWIFI Booster to enable you to receive and boost the signal in your area as well as connect to your desktop. For further enquiry, please contact DEKAL at 63-DEKAL or simply visit one of DEKAL's authorised distributors.
If you have a medium signal you can probably get by with a WiFi dongle. This is a small device that looks just like a USB flash drive. You plug this into your desktop and it allows you to surf the internet wirelessly.
If you have no signal in your area the only other option is Line-Of-Sight service. This service requires you to have a clear view of one of our SUPERWIFI antennas. You will need our SUPERWIFI Booster equipment. To find out if you are within the coverage area, please contact DEKAL at 63-DEKAL or simply visit one of DEKAL's authorised distributors.
How much will the SUPERWIFI Booster equipment cost?
Currently there is a one-time deposit. You will have to sign for our SUPERWIFI Booster equipment and purchase a month of service to receive this equipment. We will install it at no extra charge. If you no longer have use for our SUPERWIFI Booster equipment, you can return the device in working order and receive 50% of your deposit back. Please note that the device must be in working order when received by DEKAL. To find out what the deposit amount is, please contact DEKAL at 63-DEKAL or simply visit one of DEKAL Wireless' authorised distributors.
How long does it take to get my SUPERWIFI Booster installed?
Installation should take no more than 7 days after your deposit is received. We may be able to install in a shorter time but it depends on our technicians work load at the time.
What is the speed I'm supposed to get?
DEKAL offers various connection speeds ranging from 512Kb to 4 Mbs (download) and 128 Kb to 512Kb (upload). The speed you get will depend on the package you subscribe for and/or the pre-paid card you purchase. For heavy data users, we can provide a customized service with download speeds of up to 10 Mbs. To find out more, please contact DEKAL at 63-DEKAL or simply visit one of DEKAL's authorised distributors.
The connection feels slow, what's wrong?
There could be a number of reasons but the first thing to consider is your proximity to the antennas and your signal level. To be able to get the maximum bandwidth allocated to your account, it's best to be in a spot with good signal quality. Good signal quality would be three bars or better (75% or better). Other factors that could cause slow surfing are malware, spyware, viruses, too many online applications running in the background, etc. If you are at home and getting low signal levels, call DEKAL at 63-DEKAL or simply visit one of DEKAL's authorised distributors and we can arrange to install our SUPERWIFI Booster for a one-time deposit.
How do I logout of the DEKAL network?
To log yourself out of the system, click on the button "Account Logout". You will then see the "log out" button on that page.
Why can't I log in?
Each pre-paid card is only valid for use on any one terminal/computer at any one time. You should keep the pin of your pre-paid card secret and not share it with anyone else.
Remember, your pin is valid on only one terminal/computer at a time.
