Jio Fiber launch from September 5 with 100Mbps speeds

Jio Fiber launch from September 5 with 100Mbps speeds

The date also marks the third anniversary of the launch of Jio's services.

Reliance Industries Ltd is set to sell a 20 per cent stake in its oil to chemicals business to Saudi Aramco in one of the largest foreign investments in the country, Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani said on Monday. Besides, the company is also speculated to launch the Jio GigaFiber broadband service. Just like its mobile telephony service, it is expected that Jio's new foray into the cable TV and broadband segments might also act as a market disruptor with cheap pricing plans.

As per the latest data released by TRAI, Vodafone Idea-born past year from the merger of older operators Vodafone India and Idea Cellular-continues to be the largest operator with 38.75 crore consumers and 33.36 percent market share in the wireless segment as on 31 May 2019. Users will reportedly get data speeds of up to 100Mbps with this plan.

As for fixed line global voice calling, Ambani announced the "lowest fixed line rates for worldwide calling". An unlimited global calling pack for calls to U.S. and Canada was also announced for Rs. 500. Jio Preview users have to pay Rs 2,500 for the ONT device (refundable security deposit). The service is called Jio First-Day-First-Show, which will be launched in middle of 2020. It's likely the company will offer the 1Gbps speeds with select and premium data plans.

Tariff details of more costly, unlimited plans on GigaFiber are not known yet. All the plans of Reliance Jio GigaFiber are expected to get complimentary landline connection for free. The company will be broadcasting the event live from the venue.

Plan 2: Basic connection + GigaTV: The second plan could offer additional access to GigaTV service through a set-top box apart from the broadband service.

Edge computing and virtual/ mixed reality content plans were also announced by Ambani at the event, with plans for pan-India edge computing and CDN with tens of thousands of nodes, all to deliver content for entertainment, shopping, gaming, and education.

"Jio has made India data-shining bright". This is aimed to help large and SMBs accelerate their digital transformation.

Barely a month ago, Ambani said trials of the new service have been "very encouraging". These applications along with Jio connectivity will be provided at a tenth of the cost, i.e., starting at Rs. 1,500 per month.
