JioFiber, the fiber broadband arm of Reliance Jio has become one of the most popular broadband services providers in India. The company has joined the ranks of Airtel and Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) in a very short time when it comes to being the best internet service providers (ISPs). There are a ton of prepaid and postpaid broadband plans you can choose from the offerings of JioFiber. Today, we are going to take the Rs 2,499 broadband plan from JioFiber and compare it with the closest offering of ACT Fibernet. Here’s everything you should know.
JioFiber Rs 2499 Broadband Plan
The Rs 2,499 broadband plan from JioFiber comes with 500 Mbps speed. But this is not the speciality of the plan. The major benefit offered with this plan is that of the over-the-top (OTT) benefits. Users get a total of 16 OTT benefits with the Rs 2,499 broadband plan from JioFiber.
Here are all the OTT benefits you will receive when you purchase this plan - Amazon Prime Video, ZEE5 Premium, SonyLIV, Voot Select, Netflix Standard, Disney+ Hotstar, Voot Kids, Lionsgate Play, Hoichoi, SunNXT, JioCinema, Discovery+, ALT Balaji, Eros Now, ShemarooMe, and JioSaavn.
On top of these benefits, users also get a free landline connection with unlimited voice calling benefits and a free Set-Top Box (STB) from the company. The STB can run all the major OTT applications. Thus the OTT benefits that you get with this plan can help you watch amazing entertaining content directly on your TV with the help of the Jio Set-Top Box.
Users are further entitled to receive 3.3TB or 3,300GB of monthly data with the plan. Further, the speeds offered with this plan are uniform meaning users will get the same download and upload speed of 500 Mbps.
Now let’s take a look at the ACT Essential broadband plan that is a little similar to this plan from Jio.
ACT Essential Broadband Plan
ACT Essential broadband plan is available to the users for Rs 2,999. Even though this plan costs more than the above mentioned JioFiber’s plan, it offers lesser speed. The ACT Essential plan offers 400 Mbps speed to the users. Further, the OTT benefits are just for namesake since users get one month trial of ZEE5, Epic On, and Cult.fit. The other OTT benefits offered by the plan all come for a monthly or a yearly cost. In no world, this plan from ACT can beat the offering that Jio is providing. ACT seriously needs to focus on its consumer business and roll out more affordable plans.
