Jio Fiber to offer 1.1TB of Free Data for a Month to Customers - More details here

Reliance Jio is said to leap ahead and launch its Jio Fiber fixed line broadband services soon. Jio Fiber is being under test since September 2016, and officially since last May with limited users in select cities,
the company has been offering preview plans with free data to its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) users. 

Latest reports reveals that, Jio Fiber initial plan being offered to users now provides up to 1.1TB of data to users. Jio Fiber FTTH broadband services are currently in testing select markets including Ahmedabad, Chennai, Jamnagar, Mumbai, and New Delhi.

As of the reports by The Hindu,  initial plan being offered by Jio Fiber includes 100GB of free data per month at 100Mbps speed. Once this FUP is exhausted, customers can reportedly avail 40GB of free data in the form of top-ups, 25 times in a month - effectively obtaining 1,100GB or roughly 1.1TB of free data. It unclear if the remaining 1TB of data will be made available at the same 100Mbps speed.

Further reports says that, a Jio Fiber connection is said to be available in the initial markets at an interest-free security deposit of Rs. 4,500 that is refundable in nature. By paying the security deposit, Head of Strategy and Planning at Reliance Jio Anshuman Thakur told the newspaper that the company will install a Jio router, which can also be used as a set-top box to enable TV channels via IPTV services that are yet to be rolled out.
