Rain has launched South Africa’s most affordable unlimited 4G data offering, at R479 per month, which is around the cost of a measly 10GB on MTN and Vodacom.
“Rain’s goal is to offer South Africans a choice of affordable unlimited data products,” says CEO Willem Roos. “Following President Ramaphosa’s address to the nation pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic, we accelerated the go-live date of our 24/7 unlimited 4G data offering.”
Users can experience download speeds of up to 10Mbps and basic quality video streaming (up to 360p). Rain continues to offer its unlimited off-peak product, for R250 per month, for use from 11pm to 6pm the next day. The new product is suitable for use on any 4G/LTE device – routers, phones, tablets and MiFi devices – so South Africans can connect with work on their usual platforms, do remote learning, stay in touch with social media, shop online for essentials and watch streaming services.
“The President has said a Thuma Mina (‘send me’) moment is upon us,” says Roos. “It’s our hope we can make things a little easier for people. Those whose job allows them to work remotely should find the product a great help as it will remove the anxiety of uncertain, potentially high data costs. And families will be spending a lot more time together indoors, so a little screen time might be just the thing to de-stress.”
Rain’s 4G offering is available in all the South African metros, and coverage is growing daily. The new product is ready for purchase on rain.co.za and is delivered via courier to the customer’s door at no cost.
