MUMBAI: December 2018 is the target that Reliance Jio has set for itself to launch its broadband services. According to a report in Digit, JioFiber will be launched in 20 cities initially with a minimum speed of 40 Mbps.

An optical network termination (ONT) box will be installed in the homes of users which can even handle IPTV requests. This means that Jio’s target is not just broadband companies but even DTH providers including Tata Sky, Dish TV, Airtel DTH, etc., as it gets ready to offer all-in-one bundled services.

The ONT box can be connected to a TV or any device. There are four LAN ports attached to the device. Subscribers opting for special plans can avail speeds of one Gbps. The pricing of the service isn’t yet known but it is expected that people will get unlimited packs like its current mobile phone schemes.

It will initially target tier I and II cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Kochi, Bhopal, Chandigarh, etc before it moves into other towns.

In its FAQs, the company boasts of the superiority of JioFibre by stating that the connectivity will be till each house ensuring high speed internet while other companies only provide fibre till the building after which traditional cable is used to reach every house thereby reducing the speed and causing frequent disturbances. It goes on to say that the fibre network need not be changed after the first installation since the company will ensure upgradation with latest technology that will create electronic light pulses.
