Reliance Jio is reportedly gearing up to launch its fibre to the home (FTTH) broadband service in more than 30 cities. The company is planning to launch the service by early next year and it will also bundle set-top box with the upcoming service.
According to a report, the company is targeting over 100 million households in the country and in the first phase, at least 50 million households will be offered this service. The company has already laid out 300,000 kilometres of optic fibre in the country to provide high-speed data to its customers.
Further, the brand is planning to bundle set-top box as part of the package, which will offer TV channels, high-end gaming, video on demand and more, the report added. With the rollout of the service, the company is eyeing an average revenue per user of around Rs 1,000 to Rs 1,500 per month.
Reliance Jio has already begun the trial offer in limited markets like Mumbai and Delhi, where it is only providing internet service at a 100Mbps along with 100GB of free data. The company is also providing a special router, through which one can connect multiple devices at a refundable deposit of Rs 4,500. At present, the JioFIber service can be availed on invite-only basis.
