    Telkom Prepaid Landline

    Some of the models can run straight off power without need for a battery. I was concerned about ours so I only put the battery back in during load shedding bouts. Just take the battery out and see if it works. With the phone on constant charge this is bound to happen to the battery.

    And it's gone

    Let her try it for a month to see for herself before making a decision. She could be one of the very few lucky ones. Keep the MTN as a backup for the month if she is dependent on a solid connection.

    And it's gone

    Also have 0 throughput from this morning. And just like clockwork my internet goes offline every night and only comes online at around 7am. I get "no service" message on my router even when I restart. The rain support technician who eventually responded after I complained in April, gave me the...

    Vodacom Fibre

    Yes, Vodacom fibre products/packages are not very competitively priced. Can one not use another ISP though?

    FLLA phones?

    Yes, I tried my Telkom landline on a cheap cell phone and it worked like any other sim card. Try it with your existing cell phone and see how it works for you before you make any decision.

    New LTE Optimizer

    When I joined Rain a year ago I used to get between 10 and 20Mbps and there were only 2 towers servicing my area about 2.5km away. According to the optimiser, I now have a dozen towers within a 3km radius and I have managed to latch onto most of these, yet the best speed I get is 0.5Mbps. On the...

    slow speed in durban

    I have the same issue and I am certain it is the Vodacom towers not being managed properly but Rain don't seem to want to look into it.

    FLLA phones?

    I have seen them on Takealot. But why not consider a cheap cellphone for the portability aspect?

    Routers

    Don't expect any resolution. I sent a DM to @rain_mobile and it has been ignored just like my many support requests.

    Is there a way for me to rollover my data at a cheaper rate?

    Rather just buy a 50Gb for R500 and the validity is 180 days.

    Routers

    I have had a similar problem with my closest tower. Every day from 11pm to about 7am my router or phone or any other device switches to "no service" just like it does when load shedding occurs. A tower further away with the same devices does not have this problem but the speeds are terrible. at...

    Is there a way to carry over the 200gb bundle over the 12 month period?

    Yes, as I mentioned this is the only way I know of and the cost is prohibitive. It makes much more sense to buy a new 200Gb bundle that you can use for a year.
