Rain launches 4G (R50/gig – no contracts, no monthly fees, data never expires)

Mobile start-up Rain has launched its 4G product in South Africa.

It’s simple – there is only one plan, it doesn’t offer “voice” – and data is priced at R50 per gig.

There are no contracts or bundles, no monthly fees and data never expires.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed former OUTsurance CEO Willem Roos, who resigned in October 2017 to take up the CEO position at Rain.

Listen to the interview in the audio below.
