Just after I told a family member to sign up this morning. Now to get them to look at something else. Hoping that MTN will bring back the 50GB for R150 on black friday again.

This just sucks. It has been working great on my MIFI - They should atleast allow MIFI devices and other routers. Mobile phones I understand and I can wait for their mobile offerings but only those select few routers!!! Not Ayoba!

Was about to sign up to Cell C LTE A contract but bought 200GB for 1 year on sim cash instead as I could smell a rat. Works out at nearly the same price per gig
and speed is good enough plus it is mobile Data!!!

This has always been marketed as fixed LTE. Rain mobile will fill in the gap, although it will inevitably be at a higher price.

Also hoping for that.

Honestly with the way technology is converging anybody who markets something as "fixed" is still living in the stone age. Let's see how long it takes them to catch up.

I find the comments in this thread amazing. It has always been marketed as a fixed LTE service, working with specific routers only. They were very clear that RAIN mobile will follow soon.

Now a bunch of okes are whining about the fact that the product is limited to what I was always advertised to be. These same people will probably complain if they had allowed mobile and it ended up impacting the network quality.

Can never win, can you.
