Uncapped mobile broadband in South Africa — why networks throttle your connection

Running truly uncapped mobile broadband services is a tricky business, as the spectrum assigned to each mobile operator can only translate into a certain amount of data bandwidth, hence the need for fair usage policies (FUPs).

However, following the conclusion of the Independent Communication Authority of South Africa's (Icasa) spectrum auction, the new spectrum could be used by mobile operators to improve their uncapped offerings.

Always fascinates me how badly Rain answers a question.

Their answer is basically a bad sales pitch.

Lol but they're the only ones offering uncapped without FUP, what more do you want them to say?

There are no limits on Rain's 5G Premium package that I'm aware of. If you have a solid connection, you'll be able to stream multiple 4k streams on it.
