Rain rolls out new 5G product in SA

Rain has introduced a new 5G product, called the Standard Plan, which provides subscribers an uncapped 30Mbps service for 44.70 USD (R699) per month.

The operator’s existing 5G package – which proposes speeds of over 200Mbps – has been renamed to the Premium Plan.

Rain started the commercialization of its 5G service on 11 November 2019, offering subscribers unlimited data at speeds of up to 700Mbps for 63.95 USD (R1,000) per month.

Rain has extended its 5G coverage which was achieved by adding more sites and providing a new 5G router to users since its launch.

Rain’s Chief Marketing Officer Khaya Dlanga said, ‘’The latest version of Rain’s 5G router can be used both indoors and outdoors. Rain is planning to expand its 5G coverage to Cape Town and Durban in 2020.’’

A spokesperson from the company, also stated, “Customers can now have access to the rain 5G network on a month-to-month basis, plus a free-to-use 5G router as long as the customer’s 5G account is paid up.”

This new plan automatically applies to anyone who may have already signed up as a contract user during the past few months. Subscribers can upgrade from Standard to Premium effective immediately. Downgrading to the Standard plan will happen on the first of the following month.
