Hi there,

The B618 device is an LTE-A wireless device.
It can take any sim card with data availble to use on it.

Please note if it is a 3G/4G sim card it will only connect to the 3G4/G network.(MTN, Vodacom, CellC and Telkom )

In the B618 LTE-A device you can use a RAIN LTE-A sim card to connect to the faster network.

If you wish to sign up for an LTE-A sign card follow these steps:

  • Go to: https://www.afrihost.com/landing/rain_fixed_wireless/
  • Scroll down until you find the packages section
  • Select the tab 'check for coverage in your area'
  • enter your physical address
  • Click 'check coverage and sign up'
  • If there is RAIN LTE-A coverage in your area it will read 'Congratulations, you have Afrihost Fixed Wireless'
  • You can now select a data package you wish to use (25GB, 55GB, 85GB, 120GB, 220GB, 330GB)
  • Click 'Sign up'
     
  • This will take you through to client zone
  • please confirm the data package you want
  • Select 'next step'
  • You can then select one of three options

1. I have my own compatible device
2. Huawei B618 LTE-A Wireless Modem
3. Huawei B315 LTE Wireless Modem

(if you only want the sim card only, select ' I have my own compatible device')

  • Select 'next step'
  • This will take you to the shopping cart
  • and will show you the data package you selected and the modem option you selected.
  • You can then 'Check out'
  • Follow the payment step from there.
