Reliance Jio has started offering broadband services with as much as 1.1 TB of free broadband data. The ultra high-speed fibre to the home (FTTH) service thus offers huge 100 Mbps speed, according to a report of The Hindu.
Jio, the report says, is now planning to roll out the broadband services across the country. “The initial FTTH plan includes 100 gigabytes (GB) of free data at 100 Mbps speed; once the data limited is exhausted, the customers can do top-up of 40 GB of free data 25 times in a month, effectively meaning 1,100 GB of free data a month,” The Hindu reported quoting a source.
Jio is reportedly planning to offer its broadband services for both consumers and corporates. “Customers can get a JioFiber connection by paying an interest-free refundable security deposit of Rs. 4,500. The company will install the Jio router, which can be also used as a set-top box when the company launches internet protocol television (IPTV) services. The idea is to give a host of services using one box,” the report added.
Anshuman Thakur, head of strategy and planning, Reliance Jio has meanwhile claimed that the broadband services will cover 99 percent of India in this year itself, said the report. Currently, JioFiber is available in select areas of Mumbai, New Delhi, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Vadodara and Jamnagar.
