Mobile operators on Rain’s launch – “No comment”

Rain launched its first mobile products on 6 June 2018, which it said will redefine how South Africans use mobile data.

The operator supplies one data offering with simple pricing: mobile data at 5c per MB (R50 per GB).

At any time, a Rain customer will be also able to set and manage their SIM’s spend-limit, ensuring they never experience bill shock.

Rain’s mobile product is also an elegant way of steering clear of regulatory hurdles related to out-of-bundle prices and expiring data, as laid down by ICASA.
