Rain, a network data provider in South Africa, has launched the first commercial Standalone 5G network. The network is powered by Huawei. So far, Rain’s broadband covers the suburban areas in Cape Town and other areas which include Goodwood, Durbanville, the CBD, Claremont, Bellville, and Sea Point.

Rain CMO, Khaya Dlanga says, ‘’Standalone 5G will increase the performance of the 5G network with higher uplink rate, lower latency, and improved reliability. The network will aid high-end cloud VR and cloud gaming services,’’

The new Standalone 5G will show how 5G is powerful in actualizing South Africa’s 4IR future.

The Standalone 5G, which is powered by Huawei’s global 5G solutions, will facilitate digital transformation in different industries and sectors in the future.

‘’We will collaborate with strategic and trustworthy partners to expand our 5G networks and provide our customers with the best service and experience,’’ Dlanga added.

However, before Rain launched its Standalone 5G network, two prominent internet service providers in South Africa had launched their respective 5G networks. Vodacom and MTN were the first two telecoms industry in South Africa to introduce the 5G network.

Following the launch of its 5G network, MTN is already servicing over 100 sites across the country.
