MUMBAI: The upcoming disruptor in the wired broadband sector, Reliance Jio GigaFiber is expected to enter the market with a combination of broadband, landline, TV services priced at Rs 600 per month. According to a report by Mint, Jio will also be offering additional facilities along with the option to connect at least 40 devices to its smart home network for up to Rs 1000.

Currently, the company is pilot-testing GigaFiber in New Delhi and Mumbai, providing 100 gigabytes (GB) of data at 100 megabytes per second (mbps) for free, other than the one-time security deposit for a router. According to the report, telecom and television services will be added in the next three months, and the services will remain free for nearly a year, after the services are rolled out commercially.

The landline will offer unlimited calling facility while television channels will be delivered over the internet. “All these offerings will be powered through an ONT (Optical Network Terminal) box router which can connect 40-45 devices such as mobile phones, smart TVs, laptops, tablets and a range of smart devices," Mint quoted a source.

Back in 2018, Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industry Ltd (RIL), promoter of Reliance Jio unveiled its fibre-to-the-home(FTTH) broadband service Jio Giga Fibre on the day of 41st Annual General Meeting. RIL also made two strategic investments in top MSOs including Den Networks and Hathway Cable for smooth rollout of the service.
