Rain WiFi prices for new customers have gone up, according to the latest figures for RainOne packages on the South African mobile operator’s website.
The price adjustments coincide with Rain’s launch of its new 5G smart router called the101, which new customers can get on a free-to-use basis. The router has a touch screen display and boasts several other features such as AX3600 Wi-Fi, scan to connect, direct messaging and built-in speed test.
It also comes with 2GB RAM, 32GB storage and an internal SIM, which means you do not have to insert a physical SIM card. Other features include a MediaTek T750 chipset, 4-core Arm CA55 processor and 4×4 MIMO antennas.
