Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio is planning its next disruptive move in India. As per a report of Hindustan Times, the teleco is planning to roll out its broadband later this year. At that time, the report says, Jio may offer a bundled offering that will include free calls, broadband, media like Jio TV – all for under Rs 1,000.
Such an offering will not only hit the traditional broadband playes but DTH operators may also get hit. Also, with a lucrative bundled offer, Jio and Jio TV may lure some Airtel broadband users too.
Currently, Jio is testing its broadband services in some parts of the country, offering speeds as much as 100 Mpps against a security deposit of Rs 4,500. The report, quoting sources, added that though discussions are still on the tariffs but the general concession was on prices under Rs 1,000.
Meanwhile, Airtel is currently expanding its broadband coverage. Currently, in Delhi, the company is offering the bonus data on two plans of Rs 1,099 and Rs 1,299. Under Rs 1,099 plan, users will get 250GB of broadband data per month along with 1000GB of bonus data, which makes a grand total of 1,250GB. Similarly, under Rs 1,299 plan users will get 350GB of data along with 1000GB of free data per month.
Apart from this, users can enjoy the speed up to 100Mbps on both the plans and users will also get free Amazon Prime subscription for one year. Further, users can get additional 10GB of broadband data and 5GB of mobile data by adding the broadband account to their Airtel postpaid and Digital TV connection. Users will also get free Airtel TV subscription along with unlimited free calls across India.
