Introducing the101 5G smart router, designed by rain

As the world becomes more connected, the wifi router has become one of the most important appliances in our homes, defining how we live and work.

But, while everything else in our homes has evolved to offer a range of designs to suit our tastes, routers have remained largely functional.

With the arrival of the101, your home router can now take pride of place in your home, whether that’s on your counter or mounted on the window or wall.

And with powerful AX3600 wifi and a touch screen display, your router has never been smarter.

Connect with colour

the101 is the world’s best dressed router. When you order rainone, you pick a set of two 101 skins. With a choice of 10 colours, there’s a set to match every decor style.

The first collection is inspired by South Africa’s vibrant culture. Each is made from a unique, modern material. They’re free and easy to stick on and peel off.
