JioFiber FTTH expected
As the JioFiber FTTH is already being tested in several cities, there is an increased possibility for the same to be announced at the AGM today. It is a broadband connectivity, which offers a speed of 100Mbps unlike the traditional cable networks.
Previous reports have tipped that the users of the JioFiber service will get to enjoy 100Mbps internet speed with the company's over 3 lakh kilometers of optic fiber network all over the country. The same can be availed by paying a security deposit of Rs. 4,500. This broadband service from Jio is expected to provide 100GB of data month for 90 days for free with the one-time security deposit under the JioFiber preview offer.
Even the leaked images of the router surfaced online showing the Jio branded remote control. The other features of the JioFi router remain unknown for now.
Having disrupted the telecom market segment with its freebies and cheap 4G VoLTE tariff plans, Reliance Jio appears to be aimed at creating a disruption in the broadband category with the JioFiber service. Let's wait for the AGM to debut to know more details regarding the company's plans. Meantime, enjoy watching the live stream of the AGM to know the updates.
