Jio GigaFiber is available only in the select regions but when launched, it will be the largest Greenfield fixed-line broadband rollout worldwide
Jio GigaFiber could be the cheapest broadband service in India if the leaked prices are to be believed. The 50Mbps plan could be available for Rs 600 per month.
Reliance Jio will start revealing the launch details of Jio GigaFiber in the coming weeks at its annual general meeting (AGM). The high-speed internet service was the next logical step for the telecom major after the launch of its mobile service and Jio feature phones. Currently Jio GigaFiber is in the trial phase and people who have subscribed to the introductory test offer by paying Rs 4,500 are enjoying the free high-speed broadband Internet connectivity.
What’s the cost of getting a GigaFiber connection?
Details related to the cost of GigaFiber connection is still a bit patchy but as per the leaked reports, the plans will start from as low as Rs 600, possibly for a connection with 50mbps speed. The connection with speeds of 100mbps may cost a Jio Gigafiber subscriber approximately Rs1,000.
Why should you look forward to Jio GigaFiber?
Being a high-speed broadband service based on fibre optic network, Jio GigaFiber will provide speeds of 100 megabytes per second (Mbps) and 100GB of data for free. The company also plans to add telephony and television services in the next three months. All three services will be offered at no additional cost for the first year. The speeds offered will be consistent and there won’t be any loss in the signal. Netflix has already said that Jio GigaFiber is the operator with the highest streaming speeds.
