Reliance commercially launches broadband service JioFiber starting at ₹699

Reliance Jio Fiber broadband plans announced

A high-speed broadband service launching on Thursday is expected to disrupt India's booming internet and streaming industries.

JioFiber plans will be priced between Rs 700 to Rs 10,000 per month, the company said. However, as mentioned above, Jio will provide Cable TV, Broadband and Landline services to the customers with just one connection, which Airtel is lacking right now.

Reliance Jio Infocomm's home broadband service that goes live today is likely to be rolled out in a phased manner, said brokerage BNP Paribas, adding that Bharti Airtel's new converged digital entertainment services platform, Airtel Xstream, can effectively counter it as the Sunil Mittal-led telco has proactively lowered the price of its broadband service and upgraded its offerings.

As part of the Jio Fiber Welcome Offer, customers opting for annual plan - Jio Forever -will get a full HD TV or a Home PC and a 4K Set Top Box absolutely free.

Every Jio Fiber connection will be bundled with a Jio First Day First Show subscription allowing users to watch movies on the day of the release without needing to watch it in theatres.

Jio’s Annual Plans

JioFiber, an optical fiber-based fixed-line broadband service, is scheduled to commercially launch today.

Mr Ambani announced plans, offers and features that were as irresistible as expected - and there was certain to be be a long-drawn out free trial offer. This works out to almost 1,000GB free. You will have to pay a security deposit of Rs. 2,500 for the JioFiber router which is refundable. Under Jio Forever annual plans, users will get the following - Jio Home Gateway, Jio 4K Set Top Box, Television Set (in Gold plan and above), and subscription to OTT apps.

Some 15 million people have already registered for the service.

The Company will target around 1,600 cities, towns and villages. The base plan offers 100Mbps speed and 100GB data with free voice calls, TV video calling and conferencing. If you are a Jio user, you can also register from the MyJio app. It also drove down mobile data prices sharply in India.

A major shake-up in the market - with smaller broadband players simply folding up (very few will be acquired) - is not a matter of if, but when.
