Reliance Jio is rolling out its JioFiber Preview offer in selected areas of Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Ahmedabad, Surat, Jamnagar and Vadodara. The service will launch for other cities as well in next phases. The latest details was posted by Jio on Twitter from @JioCare, its official customer support handle, in response to a query.
According to a previous report, commercial roll out of Jio’s Fiber to the Home (FTTH) broadband service could take place in June this year. Company will offer a minimum of 100Mbps for the home broadband consumers, and the plan is to make it one of the most affordable broadband services in India.
In September 2016, users had shared the details that the testing had begun in some selected residential colonies in the city of Chennai. Various users posted on Twitter invites sent by Jio to become a part of the ultra-fast fiber home broadband tests. Further, Jio’s Fiber service is rumoured to offer nearly 1GB per second speeds with its broadband internet for homes, according to previous reports.
According to Jio’s invite, it will only take around a minute to download 100 photos (500MB) on Jio’s network. Time taken to download 100 songs (1GB) will be around 2 minutes, while True HD movies (5GB) will be downloaded in about 7 minutes on Jio’s network.
Reliance Jio is expected to launch a bunch of services such as DTH, smart-TV boxes, IoT solutions; along with its 1GBps broadband. In November 2016, the IndianExpress had reported that the company has already laid cables all over India for its high-speed fiber broadband network.
Jio is expected to offer “value for the customer” pricing, even with its Fiber service. The Fiber Internet service will be launched with couple of other Jio services, including a set-top box. Further, we could see Jio’s DTH TV services with more than 360 channels, and a “seven-day catch up option being given to users” as well.
