How much is a Rain SIM card? Rain, South Africa’s data only network, has been in demand of late. A lot of people are looking to try out the company’s services. We have previously written on where to buy a Rain SIM card. But how much does a Rain SIM card cost?
What’s the cost of a Rain SIM card
A Rain SIM card costs R1 at various outlets, including Takealot and hi-online. As such, the SIM is essentially free. However, when buying, you will need to choose a plan. The cheapest Rain 4G package is currently the 19 Hours Unlimited Off Peak for any device plan. That costs R250 per month. You can also opt for the Unlimited 4G for any device package which costs R479.
Is Rain Good
That’s the answer to the question; how much is a Rain SIM card. But is Rain any good? Reception to Rain has been great, with many people trying out the company’s services.
However, reception has been polarized, perhaps because Rain is still growing. If you go through comments online, you will find people split on whether or not Rain is good.
There are some who swear by the network, while others advice people to stay clear. We have the SA Broadband internet speed testing tool on this site. A lot of people have been using it to check their network speeds. As a result, we have collected a lot of useful data.
What we have discovered is that Rain actually has some of the best performances in terms of internet speed in South Africa. What seems to be the issue with some people is that they get Rain SIM cards even though they are in areas that do not really have strong coverage. Before you buy, make sure that your area is covered. If connectivity is there, you will get better than average speeds with Rain.
In this post, we showed you an answer to the question how much is a Rain SIM card. We noted that Rain SIM cards are essentially free at R1. However, when you buy one, you will also have to choose a package.
That means you will be paying beginning from R250. That’s the lowest Rain 4G plan. 5G plans start at R499 but for those you will have to buy directly from Rain. They will provide a 5G SIM and router.
