Earlier, we had reported the entry of Reliance Jio in broadband sector via JioFiber, through FTTH route (Fiber to the home). At that time, it was rumored to have minimum speed of 1 Gbps.
However, as per new reports, Jio’s broadband would start with 15 Mbps, and go upto 600 Mbps. Besides the speed, the punchline here are dirt cheap plans, which are surely making heads turn.
This service is exclusively being tested from many days in Mumbai and Pune locations. JioFibre plan which is exclusively available to some users is known as FTTH Base Plan. The plans range between 500 to 5500.
Jio Broadband service will be launched in other cities as a welcome offer for 90 days. In which you will be able to test Jio Giga Fiber broadband speed and connectivity.
The basic plan under Jio’s Welcome Offer promises 15 Mbps speed and bundles 600 GB of data for only Rs 500 per month. This means, per GB cost would come at just 83 paisa!
For Rs 1000, users can also opt for 500 GB plan at 25 Mbps speed, which turns out Rs 2 per GB. There is another very interesting plan: Rs 500 for 3.5 GB/day with no speed limit.
High end plans for higher speed has also been created, which promises even more value for money. While 50 Mbps plan gives 2000 GB per month for only Rs 1500; Rs 5500 plan will give 300 GB at a speed of 600 Mbps.
The only catch here is the expensive GigaFiber router which needs to be purchased for accessing Jio’s broadband Internet; and the cost of this router is pretty high at Rs 4000-6000. Though, it is a one-time expense.
Note here, that these plans have been shared by a news blog, and not from Jio themselves. We will update you as more details related with Jio’s broadband offerings comes to us.
