Reliance Jio offering 50Mbps JioGigaFiber plan for Rs 2,500: Report


As part of JioGigaFiber Preview program, Reliance Jio is reportedly offering a new 50Mbps broadband plan in India. In several areas of the country, Jio is already offering a free preview of its forthcoming high-speed broadband service. But the company is charging customers Rs 4,500 as a security deposit plan on the router, which ships with 100Mbps speeds. This is said to be a refundable amount.


This means that Jio is offering a flat discount of Rs 2,000. This could be Jio’s strategy to boost the reach of its GigaFiber Preview offer. However, the lower price tag means that users will lose out on some benefits. As mentioned above, with Rs 2,500 plan, Jio will offer up to 50Mbps speed instead of 100 Mbps. The router which Jio is providing to users reportedly supports single band channel, instead of the dual-band. The GigaFiber service also includes voice services as well as JioTV access, the report stated.
Besides, the JioGigaFiber internet service was introduced back in July 2018. The company, however, is yet to commercially launch JioGigaFiber. The FTTH (Fiber-to-the-home) service will reportedly be launched across 1,100 cities in India. A recent report hinted that Jio will soon introduce a combo plan of JioGigaFiber. This will give users fiber internet, landline and TV services.
