Back in September, Jio’s broadband service was overshadowed by the launch of the company’s 4G services, though it was mentioned by Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani. Though not much was detailed about the Reliance Jio GigaFiber, he did mention tests in Pune and Mumbai.
While Reliance Jio broadband service had claimed to offer speeds of 1 Gbps, users in that area have reportedly been getting speeds between 70 Mbps to 100 Mbps, which is still a big improvement over most people’s broadband connection.
Much like the Jio Welcome Offer, the Reliance Jio broadband service is said to be offered to users free for three months. However, users will have to pay INR 4,500 for installation and router. After the trial ends, Reliance Jio will collect the router and refund the money if the user doesn’t wish to continue with the broadband service.
During the testing phase, the Reliance Jio broadband service has a FUP limit of 100 GB data at full speed every month. Post the usage of the data, the Reliance Jio broadband service’s speed will go way down to 1 Mbps.
