Jio Fiber: Free TVs with India's latest broadband service

Jio Fiber: Free TVs with India's latest broadband service

The high-speed broadband service was unveiled a year ago in select cities in the trial beta phase.

India's youngest and only profitable mobile services provider Reliance Jio on Thursday formally launched its wired broadband offering JioFiber starting at ₹699, which enables high speed internet and video calling with free voice calls. The company will be sharing information on Jio Fiber plans, Home Phone landline service (also known as Fixed Voice), Set-Top Box, content partnerships, preview plan migration, and more.

The Jio First Day First Show offer will also let Premium JioFiber customers watch movies on their TVs on the same day as their theatrical release. Mukesh Ambani's announcement in August shook up the sector, and had broadband operators running for cover and coming back with counter-offers. After registration, a Jio executive will reach out to you for the connection. The JioFiber service is set for a commercial launch today.

Mr Ambani announced plans, offers and features that were as irresistible as expected - and there was certain to be be a long-drawn out free trial offer. According to the Welcome Offer, the users will get a free set-top box and smart TV offer.

The Company will target around 1,600 cities, towns and villages.

The ₹849 plan has 200 GB data and all other benefits, while the most expensive plans, namely, Platinum offers 2,500 GB for ₹3,999 and Titanium plan offers 5,000 GB for ₹8,499 at 1 GBPS speeds. It also drove down mobile data prices sharply in India.

Apart from the annual plan, users will have to pay a fee of INR 2,500 for the JioFiber router. Initially, installation charges are also being free by Jio.

A major shake-up in the market - with smaller broadband players simply folding up (very few will be acquired) - is not a matter of if, but when.
