Reliance Jio, the Telecom venture of the Mukesh Ambani is currently the talk of the town as people are heading to Reliance Digital Stores to get JIO SIM Cards and enjoy the benefits of JIO Welcome Offer, where unlimited free 4G data and voice calls are offered. Now the news is coming in about company’s FTTH Broadband plans.
The new 1 Gbps fiber internet connection to home is being touted as the most fastest broadband connection in the country. At Annual General Meeting, Chairman Mr Ambani announce that the FTTH services would be provided to top 100 cities in the country. Starting with select cities such as Mumbai and Delhi.
Earlier we reported about Reliance offering FTTH connections for free for three months with 100 Mbps speed. As a user posted what appears to be Jio’s GigeFiber connection and router. Now new reports are popping up online stating that JIO Fiber Broadband is now open for public testing as it welcomes users to subscribe to their broadband under GigaFiber Welcome Offer. Yes, that’s the term used.
This new GigaFiber broadband is Fiber to the Home service, which uses fiber optic technology to establish a high-speed connection. It would be provided to home and business subscribers. According to the source, the plans for Reliance Jio Fiber Broadband starts as low as Rs 500 for monthly plan.
The service from JIO is all set to be opened for all in coming days as the company finishes up with testing phase. The company is going to announce the tariff plans for its broadband service just as they did with 4G services. Though, we don’t expect another grand announcement as the AGM to wait for this revelation.
The Fiber plans would be of three types: Silver, Gold and Platinum. while the base price range starts at just Rs 500, there would be a range of plans based on different types of speed and data cap volume. Do make a note that company would be offering 100GB of data free under the base plan. As for first 90 days, free data and access to Jio premium apps such as JioTV, JioCinema, JioBeats, etc. would be provided.
You can see in the table the plans for the Jio Fiber Broadband. We recommend that you take this information with a grain of salt as there is no official confirmation of the plans from Reliance Jio itself. Though, you can get an idea how they would be priced from the table.

As the company expand its service to public and other cities, people interested in Fiber plans would be easily able to sign up for Jio Fiber via online or from the nearest Jio Store. There would be a Jio Fiber-compatible router provided with a price tag of below Rs 6000. Subscribers would need to pay that as a one-time charge for the router, as no additional charge would be levied on users under Jio Fiber Preview Offer.
