Jio has announced that it will be launching its GigaFiber FTTH service in 1,600 cities. To recall, the Reliance Jio GigaFiber was introduced in August last year.
Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries Limited, Mukesh D Ambani said in a statement to ET Telecom that GigaFiber is rolling out to 1,600 cities across India after a successful beta test in selected cities. However, the company is yet to announce the pricing and availability of its service.
The telecom operator had completed the acquisition of Den Networks and Hathway Cable and Datacom Limited. The GigaFiber services include home broadband, entertainment, smart home solutions, wireline and enterprise.
“After successful execution of mobility business, Jio is now focused on catapulting India’s underserved Home & Enterprise connectivity market to global standards with its next-generation FTTX services,” Ambani said. “Jio mobility services along with Gigafiber fixed-broadband services and associated technology platforms have been designed to transform India with the power of Digital Revolution and reinvent Reliance as a Technology Platform Company,” he added.
Reliance Jio was reportedly testing a new Triple Play plan for its GigaFiber FTTH service. The single Triple Play plan offers a validity of 28 days with 100GB of data at 100Mbps. Additionally, it also offers unlimited voice calling, subscription to Jio Home TV and access to Jio app suite.
