rain has announced an expansion of its 4G network coverage which is now cating to the entirety of South Africa along with a new product offering called, RainOne.
After acquiring spectrum in the 2022 auction, rain is overlaying its existing 4G network with a new layer which provides for more comprehensive reach. This has now positioned rain to enter the market as a full mobile network operator, thus becoming the fourth telco after Vodacom, MTN and Telkom, with a network that offers national coverage in voice, SMS and data.
rain’s 4G and 5G networks are highly efficient, providing seamless, plug and play 5G streaming and now high definition 4G voice calls. And because they don’t have to maintain legacy 2G and 3G networks, rain is more cost effective and therefore able to offer significant value to the end user.
Customer’s with rainOne will be able to seamlessly port their existing number and use rain mobile as their primary SIM, with national 4G mobile coverage.Statement by rain
Now customers have another option for mobile services from a provider that has already established a strong reputation in the home internet market. The expansion of rain’s network, both in terms of 5G coverage and spectrum acquisition, indicates that we are serious about being a major player in the mobile market as well.Brandon Leigh, CEO, rain
