After capturing the cellular market, the company is now looking forward to taking on the broadband internet segment in India, where the company is expected to offer disruptive data plans with high-speed internet at an affordable price tag.
The registration for the Reliance Jio GigaFiber will start from the 15 of August 2018 in India, where the company is also expected to unveil the pricing and other information about the Reliance Jio GigaFiber on the same day.
And now, the company has updated Jio.com and MyJio App. The Reliance Jio GigaFiber will be available across 1100 cities in India. However, initially, the rollout will be limited to the selected number of cities (based on the number of registrations).

- Finally, click on Apple for GigaFiber on the bottom of the page
- The company will send an email and a text message regarding the confirmation and a mail will be initiated regarding the date and time of the actual installation by a trained team
- Jio will not charge a paisa for the registration and it is completely free of cost and a fixed amount has to be paid at the time of actual installation
