I think the problem with rain is this. it's being sold very very wrong to the general public. it should be sold as a Best effort service and should clearly state that when people make a purchase. A correct way in selling it would be "you could get speeds of up to 300Mbps for R999 *Please note this varies from area to area and is subject to best efforts located in our T&C's" From there Rain has plenty of space to cover their butts for area's that are oversold and or experiencing overload problems.
Anyone that thinks you'll get 300Mbps every time on a wireless connection that is sold like this to the public is downright silly. Sure maybe if you got a supplier to do it for you but trust me you're not paying R999 for that connection.
I tried rain for a month and it works great I got the R479 unlimited up to 10MB down which really wasn't 10MB down more like 7 which was a bit of a letdown but whatever it serves its purpose. People that need a steady connection contact a wireless service provider.
Any ideas on how to cancel my 5G subscription ? I have logged a support ticket 8 days ago, I have PM'd the rain support person on this forum. No luck.
The "manage" button on the rain dashboard does not work - I tried Chrome, IE, Opera. No luck.
So, I'd like to cancel, but nobody wants to listen.
I was thinking of going for the Rain R479 unlimited but after reading all these comments I'll head for another supplier I think. I'm not a techie and it appears you have to be a bit of one to make Rain work - if at all
