Let’s check out the Latest Plans For Jio GigaFiber Broadband
Reliance JIO announced the commercial launch of JIO broadband in India on August 12, 2019, and in 2021 it reached most cities in India. The broadband service rivals Airtel Xstream, Den, BSNL, and ACT fibernet broadband services.
Note – I have been using the Jio Broadband at home for more than a year, and so far, the service has been trouble-free.
The Reliance JIO GigaFiber is available with several plans, and the base plan comes with 30 Mbps speed with a monthly rental of Rs. 487 (inclusive of GST).
Jio plans to reach 15 million homes and 20 Million businesses with the GigaFiber.
Moreover, different plans will be available for everyone from 30 MBPS to 1000 MBPS, with additional monthly data consumption. You will need a WIFI 6 router to effectively use a 1000 Mbps plan.
There were rumors that Jio could launch the Jio Phone 3 5G at the meeting, but they didn’t.
Reliance JIO Broadband Installation Charges
You need to pay One Time Payment (security deposit + non-refundable installation) ₹2,500 (1,500 + 1,000) to get the Jio Giga Home broadband connection.
There are no extra charges for the modem, installation, or Wi-Fi router.
However, Reliance offers a Dual Band Router with excellent connectivity and coverage. I have been using the service (100 Mbps plan) for more than six months, and there is little to complain about.
The speed is excellent, and the downtime is also minimal.
Hathway, BSNL, DEN, ACT Fibernet, and even Airtel offer connections at almost similar pricing.
