“Our initial 5G network of 250 sites already ‘passes’ 500,000 households. That’s almost an equal size to the two largest fibre network operators in the country,” said Rain."

Somebody tell Rain that they need to cut out the fibre comparison bull ****. You failed 3 times already.

You think Rain would not fail with fibre?

Firstly I would like to congratulate Liquid Telecom for considering 5G wholesale model this is good news for customers.
But I'm just wondering which cities will be added to phase 1 roll out plan ?
We all know that Liquid Telecom has Fibre backbone so are we going to see secondary cities having 5G coverage immediately or is going to be metropolitans first?
By the way it could be very interesting if Liquid Telecom chooses to compete very closely with Rain 5G and FTTH pricing

This comes a month after TechCentral reported that the company had signed an agreement with Vodacom
