Rain LTE-A

RAIN LTE-A (The only Alternative to Fibre)

What is LTE Advanced?

These days, 4G LTE is without a doubt the de facto standard for most carriers across the globe when it comes to mobile broadband speeds, with 3G and other older technologies mostly considered as second tier speeds that are only offered in more remote areas. But what's next? The obvious answer is 5G, and in fact we're already seeing the tech march closer and closer to reality. In the meantime, there's another tech that's starting to become more popular across the globe - 4G LTE-A.

    Rain on track to launch data-only mobile products this year

    Rain is on track to launch its first mobile products before the end of 2017, which promise to disrupt the market in South Africa.

    Rain director Michael Jordaan told MyBroadband in July the company plans to launch a data-centric mobile service when they have 2,000 LTE-A towers active in South Africa.

    The operator currently has 1,300 active LTE-A towers, and its network is growing rapidly – with new sites going live each week.

    Rain has already launched competitive fixed-wireless products through partner ISPs, and many people are keen to see what Rain will offer to disrupt the mobile market.

    Mobile data products

    The company said the data-only mobile products it plans to launch will be simple and offer affordable pricing. They will also challenge traditional market practices such as data expiry.

    Rain is playing its cards close to its chest, but it is possible it will launch service-based products as part of its mobile data strategy.

    This could take the form of social media, messaging, web surfing, video streaming, or voice service packages, rather than just a data bundle.

    Telkom and Cell C are already bundling unlimited services, like messaging and video streaming, with certain mobile products – but data bundles still form the basis of these products.
