Update: We've got to know that the Twitter handle that revealed the Jio Fiber launch details is a fake. It does not belong to Isha Ambani as it was believed to be. Though the launch details and pricing of the Jio Fiber connection appear to be unconfirmed, it looks like we can expect the Jio broadband service to be rolled out by the end of this year as the same is already in testing in select cities.
Reliance Jio Fiber is highly anticipated to be rolled out since long as it is believed to offer high-speed connectivity. Like the Jio 4G service, even the Jio Fiber is believed to take the internet market by storm and create an intense competition for the other service providers in the country.
While there is no clear information on when the Jio Fiber will be rolled out officially to the users, the recent tweet by Isha Ambani seems to provide some interesting information regarding the Jio Fiber service. Mukesh Ambani's daughter has taken to Twitter to confirm that Jio Fiber will offer 100GB high-speed data at just Rs. 500. She has added that the service will be rolled out across 100 cities by Diwali. Interestingly, the speed of this service is claimed to be 1Gbps.
From the tweet, we can infer that the service will be made available to the users in a couple of months r so. Notably, the Jio Fiber service is already available in select cities for the testing purpose and some users in these cities can get the connection depending on its availability.
Back in July, the Jio Fiber details were accidentally leaked tipping the pilot locations where the service will be rolled out first and the possible cost. According to the same, the Jio Fiber will provide 100GB data for free for three months at 100Mbps speed. It is speculated that the service will have a FUP of 1Mbps on exceeding the 100GB data consumption limit. Also, Jio Fiber is claimed to involve a security deposit of Rs. 4,500 at the time of installation. However, none of these details are official and there could be changes done to the same at the time of announcing the service.
It was tipped that the Jio Fiber pilot launch will happen in top tier cities such as Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat, and Vishakhapatnam.
