Rain Data Deals, Packages and Plans

Rain South Africa provides 4G and 5G data deals, packages, and plans. The data plan a user subscribes to will depend on the type of Rain SIM card they have. Rain is the first network provider to launch 5G in South Africa, and as a result of their fast network services, many South Africans are now using Rain for data. 4G was fast, but 5G is faster, and no one wants to snooze on it.

As a Rain subscriber, the type of data package or plan you buy should depend on your data needs. Thankfully, rain has many data deals to accommodate different types of users. For those who can measure the amount of data they need per month, there are limited packages, and for heavy data users, there are unlimited data packages.

Rain Data Packages

With Rain unlimited data packages, users have access to unlimited data without having to sign contract deals. They offer three packages for 5G and three packages for 4G/4G LTE. Please note that you must have a 5G-enabled Rain SIM and device to be able to enjoy the fast internet access that comes with using 5G.

The different data plans come at different prices and have different pros and cons. It is important that you understand all of the advantages and disadvantages of each plan before subscribing to the plan that suits your needs and preferences. Here are the different rain data packages that you can choose from.

Rain 5G Data Packages

Rain prides itself on being the first 5G network provider. The network launched its 5G operations in September 2019. MTN and Vodacom also offer a 5G internet connection, but Rain still prides itself on being the best.

All Rain 5G data packages and offers are unlimited and are contract-free. So you don’t have to sign any contract, subscribe to it, and enjoy unlimited data supply.

Unlimited Home 5G Basic – R499

This is the cheapest and most affordable Rain 5G data plan. And it comes with a free router, and you also don’t have to pay any extra delivery fee. Here are some of the other benefits that come with this package:

  • 25 Mbps download speed
  • HD video streaming (720p)
  • Unlimited home WiFi
  • Plug and play

25 Mbps download speed may seem fast, but it is not as fast as other Rain 5G packages. So if you want faster internet access, this may not be your preferred choice.

Also, if you like to stream with better quality, you may want to consider other 5G plans. However, if this is what you can afford, then that’s fine, seeing that it is faster than 4G. Please note that this plan is valid for a month.

Unlimited Home 5G Standard – R699

This plan is more expensive than the basic plan but may be worth it, seeing that it has more pros than the Basic plan discussed above. This offer comes with free delivery and a free 5G indoor router. It also doesn’t require signing any contract. Here are the other benefits of this plan:

  • 50 Mbps download speed
  • Unlimited home WiFi
  • Full HD video streaming (1080p)
  • Simple plug and play
  • Optimized for rain network only.

This plan is faster for downloading and better for streaming with better quality. However, it is more expensive. You will have to renew your subscription monthly.

Unlimited Home 5G Premium – R999

This is Rain’s most expensive 5G data package. Like other plans, it comes with a free-to-use 5G router that is simple to use, free delivery, and no contract. But, this is what makes this plan the most expensive:

  • Ultra-fast 5G download speed
  • Multiple HD streams
  • Full HD streaming
  • Unlimited home WiFi

If 50 Mph download speed is too slow for you, then Rain’s ultra-fast 5G download speed should do it for you. Like other plans, this plan is valid for a month, after which you will have to renew.
