Reliance Jio GigaFiber 2019: After the Reliance Jio has announced about Jio GigaFiber launch, there have been currents all over the broadband industry. For those who don’t know much about Jio GigaFiber, then it is a new optical-based home broadband service which is being offered by Reliance Jio.
Well, it has almost been a year ago, when Reliance announced its expedition into the broadband as well as DTH TV sectors in India with Jio GigaFiber and since then, the service has been in a kind of free public beta in several cities under the Preview offer.
Reliance has also revealed the date for its 42nd Annual General Meeting and the company this time is expected to declare commercial prices of GigaFiber. The event is going to take place on August 12 and at the same time reliance hasn’t given a hint on what customers may possibly presume this year. On the other hand, a media report which was revealed a few months ago suggested that Jio is nearly done with testing of the network and it may perhaps launch the service in India very soon.
Together with the Jio GigaFiber, Reliance may possibly also reveal its foray into the TV sector with its GigaTV or Jio Home TV, about which the name isn’t announced yet. Well, there is nothing much known or revealed about this service but as per to the rumors, GigaTV is going to be a part of the monthly subscription package that also comprises of GigaFiber and a free landline connection.
When is Jio GigaFiber launching?
Right now, Reliance hasn’t hinted at anything for this year’s AGM but it is likely that Jio is going to launch GigaFiber broadband commercially. Not only GigaFiber but also we can expect Reliance’s Jio Home TV service to be launched.
If the rumors are to be believed, then GigaFiber’s commercial services are just over a month away. If all of those leaks and rumors turn out to be true, then GigaFiber might possibly be a good proposal for those wants better value out of their broadband service.
In the meantime, we can assume it to be released in a few weeks time. Reliance’s Annual General Meeting is planned to take place each year in the month of July and we believe that Jio may possibly show it the green flag at this year’s event.
How much would GigaFiber cost?
With GigaFiber, it is likely that the base plan may possibly be named the Jio Triple Play and is going to offer its subscribers up to 100GB complimentary data for Rs 600 at speeds of 50Mbps. There may possibly be an additional higher-priced plan worth Rs 1,000 that is going to offer higher data speeds of 100Mbps.
In the meantime, the GigaTV service may possibly be offering 600 TV channels in the subscription package and it is also going to count on the fiber network technology of GigaFiber in order to offers high-definition TV viewing experience.
A few months ago, as per to a report, Jio confirmed that GigaFiber is almost completed with its test phase and it is going to be accessible for the customers soon.
