Kiran Thomas, President, Reliance Industries Limited also boasted about the prowess of the new services which Reliance Jio will be offering.

Ambani informed that the registration for GigaFiber would commence on August 15 and they will be done entirely over MyJio app and the Jio official website ( It is also notable that Jio has decided that it would prioritise cities based on the response from each locale and how many users are registering from a particular city.


GigaTV, which will accompany the usual high-speed broadband services will bring on-board many features. It will also allow subscribers to use voice commands on a microphone-enabled TV remote to access Jio apps such as Jio TV, Jio Cinema, Jio TV Call. Isha Ambani who lead the launch of GigaFiber on stage remarked "You can call every other TV that is powered by Jio GigaFiber. You can also call a mobile or tablet connected to every network.
