which vpn is blocked?
I use PIA on all my devices.
===========================================================================
If you want to cry then go get Vodacom or MTN prepaid data, they are giving a service at their terms and also to stop people abusing it. If you really need to vpn go to another network that supports it. Simple reason why we can’t have nice things in South Africa as everyone tries to screw the system because they cool.
Usually it are those who have tried and failed to circumvent restrictions who make these comments, much like former smokers who act all high and mighty about current smokers.

You are talking rubbish. VPN is for privacy, both fixed and mobile. It's not to circumvent any restriction as there are no restrictions to circumvent. Usage is still being billed in the same way.
Exactly - I use it for privacy and security - I don't care for bypassing restrictions...

==========================================================================

To those who groans about mobile... Rain sells devices, including the B315 Huawei fixed LTE router (or did when I signed up, Not sure if they still do) for use with Rain Mobile SIMs. If they did not want people to use it why sell the device? Why not restrict it to certain devices as they do with their fixed wireless?

You're confusing fixed LTE with mobile.

This thread is called "
data usage policy on RAIN
"... and these policies are affecting the fixed data users like me.


I pay for 660Gigs a month.. It would be nice to be able to RDP over my VPN
Yes and there is no usage policy relating to Fixed LTE. This is being aimed at people who used the Mobile one at R50 per 1GB or R250 Unlimited. Specifically policies apply to unlimited things.
