The South African cities covered by Rain’s LTE-A network

Wireless Business Solutions has launched its LTE-A network under the name Rain.

Rain promises to provide consumers with increased connectivity at affordable prices, and has rolled out 750 LTE-A sites to date.

It is on track to meet a target of 2,000 sites by the end of the year, and said its coverage is increasing daily.

“Very shortly, we will be announcing details of a fixed-wireless broadband service, Rain to the Home (RttH) as a fibre or DSL alternative,” said Rain CEO Duncan Simpson-Craib.

The company said it is rolling out Rain on a daily basis to more areas in South Africa, as shown in its coverage map.

Citizens who are not covered can send Rain an email with a request for their area to be included, using “[email protected]”.
