Reliance Jio’s Broadband Services With 100Mbps Speed to Commence in June Claims a New Report

Speculations are rife about the upcoming Jio’s broadband service in recent times, and Mukesh Ambani in a recent press conference said that the beta trials of the service would be expanded to other cities as well in coming months. And now, a new report from TeleAnalysis says that the service will be rolled to public in June.

As we already know, Jio’s broadband service will be built on Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) technology; the company is looking to offer a minimum speed of 100Mbps and revolutionise the market.

“We are doing some trials in various cities, and most trials are successful and ready for commercial roll-out,” an unknown source said to the blog. The source also said to the blog that “By June you will see some development in your city.”

“The executive said the services planned to be offered on Jio Fibre would be like no other. The minimum speed one will get 100 Mbps. Our plans start from 100 Mbps, and it will be the most affordable home broadband service that Indian consumers will ever get,” cites the report.

The source also said that the customers wouldn’t mind at all to pay and use the service, which could mean that Jio will launch the service at cutthroat prices. It is also believed that the company is looking to start various services with the Jio Fiber technology such as home automation products, etc. which was also rumoured earlier.

“For example, it will be having a smart calling feature. What it will offer is all the phones in your home will get virtually connected. Means, if you got a call on the landline, you can receive it on your mobile and vice versa,” revealed the source.

All these services will be offered like an add-on, which means that a customer can either opt into it or not.

In a recent report, it was speculated that Jio is looking to launch services such as home automation, home surveillance, etc. With the home surveillance, Jio is seeking to provide a security system to a user’s home. This service will also be bundled with the Jio Fiber plans.

It is worth noting that this will be the first case of development in India of home automation services using the IoT technology. “The Company continues to make progress on the roll-out of its Fibre to the Home (FTTH) business offering with beta trials initiated in a few locations. It would expand the scope of the beta tests over the next few months,” concludes the source.

Going by this report, Jio is looking to shake the broadband sector in India by aggressive plans and high-speed data like no other ISP offered before. It is also anticipated that Jio will offer the service free for three months under the ‘Welcome Offer.’

It’s in trial so 100 GB seems okay …. learning from abuses of Mobile network pre launch

They are offering top up of extra 40 GB through recharge from jio.com for 0 Rs

And 4500 refundable fee

Btw how much should be normal usage ?

I can’t consume all in ACT delhi 40 Mbps 150 GB plan.

Videoplayback on youtube netflix etc are in 720p

40GB topup at 0 is funny though. I wonder how many topups the customers will be adding when they log on to Jio and make the topup since it is free. They might be doing around 100 topups per day lmao 😀

My normal usage is around 300GB per month. Different people have different needs.

What is the speed of your net connection? Faster the connection speed, the faster the bandwidth will be consumed. I haven’t experienced 100Mbps yet. The fastest I’ve experienced was in a cyber. It was 34Mbps on speed test. And on my mobile, Jio used to give around 42Mbps max on the empty tower in the locality.

They learnt something from the Jio Preview offer experience I guess, lol. But 100 GB is really too low.

Yeah 100 gigs is really low. They should’ve started at 300 gigs as downloading at 12MB/s, you could finish the cap in less than 2 minutes :v
I’m not saying that we should suck it up in 2 minutes, but if you update apps, update windows, update your games, watch a couple of videos, use amazon prime for a minute etc, you could finish the data on day one. They didn’t mention the post FUP bandwidth though.

LOL. They will never give any high speed plans without FUP now. We have proven we will exploit them till the last drop and its unsustainable for now. Anyway, I agree. They should have given atleast 200GB, but 100GB is already more than most wireline broadband users use or have been limited by lower FUP’s already anyway.
