Reliance Jio is currently testing this service in about 10 cities
Reliance Jio upcoming JioFiber broadband service has been in talks for a while now with no concrete evidence of the exact date of launch. However, according to the latest report, Reliance Jio is all set to launch its JioFiber service in India by end of March 2018.
According to a report by TelecomTalk, Mukesh Ambani-led Jio could officially introduce the JioFiber service by the end of this quarter. Currently, Jio is testing this service in about 10 cities. The lucky 'testers' are now enjoying 100 GB of free data every month, under its JioFiber Preview Offer. Once the said data is consumed, the speed will drop to 1Mbps.
Though initially, it was told that the people who joined the trial phase will avail the broadband service only for three months, chances are that they much like the mobile services, they will get to enjoy it till Jio launches its fixed broadband services.
The Mukesh Ambani-led company is likely to offer both broadband and Internet TV connection via a single connection. This means you may not have to pay for your landline, broadband and cable TV connection separately. With a high chance that you will have an adequate choice of content too before you start looking out.

With this, Reliance Jio is once again ready to disrupt the broadband market in India. We have already saw multiple broadband players like ACT Fibre, DEN, Spectranet and more dropping slashing the price of different plans, while simultaneously offering ever more data speeds. In fact, a curious trend has been an effort to 'lock in' customers with extended plans at attractive prices. Plans that need a six-month deposit or even an annual payment are not uncommon. However, it would be interesting to see whether Reliance Jio will be able to create a storm in the broadband sector or not.
