Reliance JioFiber could be launched by the end of March

Reliance Jio is all set to foray into the broadband sector in the next month.

    After creating a revolution in the telecom sector and the budget mobile phone market with its 4G services and JioPhone, Reliance Jio is geared up to bring a change in the broadband network. The company is known to be working on a low-cost fiber broadband network called JioFiber. The operator is claimed to deliver free services at high speeds with the launch of this service.

    Reliance Jio that creates waves of disruption with the free 4G services for six months and dirt cheap plans till date. Due to the same, the other operators have also started slashing the price tags of their tariff plans. Now, with the JioFiber broadband service, the company is highly expected to bring this disruption to the broadband sector too.

    Likely launch date

    There is no confirmation on when this service might be launched but the media reports suggest a possible launch by the end of this quarter. Also, it is believed that the JioFiber will be a great success as the company is known for its high-speed services at minimal prices. We can expect the JioFiber to render up to 1Gbps speed at a minimal cost.

    JioFiber is under testing

    Jio has been testing the JioFiber broadband service in almost 10 cities across the country for quite some time. The company is providing the broadband service in select regions in cities such as Surat, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Delhi NCR, Hyderabad and Jamnagar.

    Free 100GB data per month

    During the testing, the company is offering 100GB of free data per month as the JioFiber Preview Offer is going on. Initially, the company is believed to provide three months of free broadband services to the users but we can expect the offer to be extended as it happened with the 4G services.

    Previously leaked plans

    Earlier, there were leaks pointing out that the JioFiber plans might cost Rs. 500 per month for 600GB data and Rs. 2,000 per month for 1000GB data with data speeds up to 100Mbps. This might be applicable after the end of the Preview Offer of the broadband service.

    Changes in the broadband sector

    Already, other broadband service providers such as Airtel, ACT Fiber, BSNL and MTNL have slashed the pricing of their broadband plans. They have also started offering more data at higher speeds. The competition has brought in benefits to the broadband users.
