MUMBAI: While Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) chairman Mukesh Ambani was outlining Jio’s wireless 4G LTE network plans and tariffs at its 39th AGM, he also announced that Reliance Jio was starting in select cities a fibre to the home (FTTH) wired line network with the possibility of offering bandwidths upto 1 GBps to residential users.

“This initiative will push the power of data even further,” he said. “We will progressively extend this to the top 100 cities.”

The wired line broadband network is to be extended to even enterprises which would allow companies to have multi- gigabyte connectivity. “These will be on par with what is available in the developed world for all our enterprise customers,” Ambani said.

The company was also in the process of tying up with some of the world’s iconic digital and internet players in order to bring to Indian customers the “full power and range of their offerings.”

For the past few months, a select bunch of high networth individuals in the south of Mumbai have already been experiencing the FTTH service.

Industry observers expect Jio to disrupt pricing in the FTTH segment too, similar to what it is doing in mobile communications.
