I need a prepaid LTE sim on which I can buy a data bundle which will last 6-12 months (so not a 30 day bundle that expires) so I can hook up my CCTV DVR to a router and access remotely as it is too far away from my main router at home. Will only connect to the DVR occasionally so high data usage is unlikely.

Rain LTE is restricted
So is MTN
Haven't tried a Vodacom sim
Telkom has an unrestricted APN
Haven't tried Cell C

Anyone run a data sim just for CCTV occasional viewing? I wish rain worked as their pay as you use billing would've been perfect.

Best would be Telkom for prepaid unrestricted BUT the bundle duration can be an issue because only their high bundles are valid for 6 or 12months.

What about their internet starter pack bundles?

Hi Flash

I do this often for remote cctv sites that connect to a control room.

I use the following with Unrestricted plans.
MTN
Vodacom
Cell-C
Telkom
Rain

If high data usage is unlikely, then just load a small data bundle. You can always "topup" without going to the site. Rain works well and is also Unrestricted.

Just call them and ask to activate unrestricted APN . I’m certain most will activate for you
