Jio GigaFiber 50Mbps broadband could start at Rs 600 per month

Jio’s upcoming GigaFiber broadband service has been the star of the Indian tech scene since it was launched under the public beta mode. Unlike most of its rivals, Jio GigaFiber will utilize the fiber optic network to ensure faster and stable Internet speeds.
Also, since it’s coming from Jio it is expected to be extremely affordable when compared to the current crop of broadband operators. Although Jio hasn’t declared the official prices yet, many are expecting GigaFiber to undercut all existing broadband operators with an aggressive pricing strategy. And thanks to leaked information, we now have a hint of the prices.

Highlights :-
  • The base plan will offer speeds of 50Mbps and will be available for Rs 600 per month.
  • The 100Mbps plan that has been available to Preview subscribers is expected to cost Rs 1,000 per month.
  • Jio could also offer complimentary access to Jio’s HomeTV service and a landline connection.

The latest set of leaks have come out in the media talking about the pricing of Jio GigaFiber. And from what it seems, GigaFiber could gain a huge advantage over rival operators and draw more subscribers. According to leaks, the base plan will offer speeds of 50Mbps and will be available for Rs 600 per month. The 100Mbps plan that has been available to Preview subscribers is expected to cost Rs 1,000 per month.

Jio's GigaFiber connection will also come with Giga TV (Jio's TV set-top box bundled with a voice-activated remote) and Jio Smart Home devices. .

According to Jio, Giga TV will offer "600+ TV channels, thousands of movies, millions of songs, and any other type of content possible."

Further, users will have access to JioCinema, JioTVCall, JioCloud among others.

Jio had only one plan that offered a 100Mbps connection under the Preview offer. Users had to pay Rs 4,500 as security deposit and they could access data for free. However, a few months ago, many subscribers reported that they were getting the GigaFiber connection with a security deposit fo Rs 2,500. With this plan, subscribers are only able to get speeds of 50Mbps and be restricted to a single-band router.
