Rain launches unlimited 4G data for phones for R379

Rain has launched a new unlimited 4G data package for mobile phones priced at R379 per month on a month-to-month contract.

The service offers unlimited data, but with restrictions on the streaming resolution and the ability to use your phone as a hotspot.

  • Basic streaming resolution will only provide a streaming quality resolution of up to 360p.
  • The service will not allow you to use your smartphone as a mobile hotspot.
  • The service can only be used on 4G phones.

This new unlimited “4G for phones” service complements Rain’s existing 19-hours unlimited off-peak service for R250 per month.

The unlimited off-peak service does not have any restrictions on streaming or being used as a hotspot, but data is charged at R50 per GB between 18:00 and 23:00.

This service can also be used in any device, while the new “4G for phones” service can only be used in smartphones.
