Rain launches 5G in Cape Town
The data-only network Rain announced that it has launched its 5G service in Cape Town and that it will be available as of the 18th of July 2020 from as little as R699 per month.
The company will offer both its Standard and Premium Unlimited 5G packages in Cape Town, priced at R699 and R999 per month, respectively.
Rain’s standard package caps speeds at 30Mbps and allows a single HD video stream, while its Premium package offers multiple HD+ quality streams and has no speed limitations.
“Premium users can expect average speeds exceeding 200Mbps,” Rain said.
“Clients can order the 5G package on www.rain.co.za and have the router delivered for free straight to their door,” the company said.
Rain added that it has built additional 5G sites in Gauteng in recent months and that its coverage continues to expand.
“Furthermore, Rain hopes to blanket more metro areas though out South Africa in the next 18 months.”
Rain chief marketing officer Khaya Dlanga said that Rain continues to play its part in ensuring South Africans benefit from 5G technology.
“By rolling out the most affordable 5G unlimited products in the market, Rain is playing its part in building the 5G ecosystem in the country,” Dlanga said.
“5G can significantly increase ultra-broadband penetration in the country which supports economic growth and will enable South Africans to remain productive by working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Both packages are available on a month-to-month basis and include a free-to-use 5G router.
