- Reliance Jio GigaFiber will be operating a triple play plan providing all 3 services - DTH, landline and broadband
- The rumoured price of the service is Rs 600 per month
The Mukesh Ambani led telecom operator Reliance Jio has created a massive hype in the country about the launch of the Reliance Jio GigaFiber. The launch of this new service by the operator would be a big one as it has already hinted and we also know that the rollout of this new service would also resemble the rollout of Reliance Jio itself which attacked the market with extra cheap data tariff options prices. The new GigaFiber service has been named as a versatile service as it will also accompany other services like GigaTV in select areas. With so much information out there, it Is easy to get confused and hence we have brought to you the facts which you need to know about the rollout of Reliance Jio GigaFiber.
Reliance Jio to Make a Dent in the Broadband Market
Firstly, it is worth noting that with the launch of this new service, Reliance Jio wants to gain a monopoly over the market which remains untouched by till now. Currently, Jio already dominates the wireless broadband segment, and with GigaFiber, the telco will be on the path of becoming a massive wired broadband service provider too. The launch of this new service is also expected to be a grand one, and GigaFiber is likely to steal the limelight from a lot of other service providers.
Currently, to get a Reliance Jio GigaFiber subscription in the areas where it is available for preview testing, the subscribers are paying Rs 4,500 for the security deposit. After this amount, the monthly rental of the subscriber is waived off, and for this much, the subscribers are getting 100GB data per month, and in case the subscriber exhausts this data, Reliance Jio also ships extra free data vouchers which will push the data offering of the box to 1,100GB instead of merely 100GB.
Reliance Jio Triple Play Plan Details
While there has been no solid report about the launch of a particular plan under the banner of Reliance Jio GigaFiber, we have seen the telco testing a new kind of plan which could be its unique proposition in the Indian broadband market, and with we are talking about the – Triple Play Plan.
This plan from Reliance Jio GigaFiber will bundle DTH, broadband and a landline connection into a single bill and will avail all the three services under the same banner at the same place. The Triple Play Plan will depend on the broadband connection for facilitating the TV, thus tapping in on your 100GB data offering. Besides this, Reliance Jio will offer the Home TV setup which will likely provide 600 channels to the subscribers over the IPTV (Internet Protocol TV) to relay TV channels, unlike the conventional DTH services. Also, there isn’t any confirmed word on the pricing of this service, but it is rumoured that it will be priced at Rs 600 per month.
