Reliance announced its JioGigaFiber internet services in July 2018 and commenced registration for it in August last year. While the service is yet to be launched commercially, it is being tested in some cities. It includes free access to the internet for a deposit fee of Rs 4,500. Now, quoting a person aware of the development, LiveMint reports that the company will offer a combo service consisting of fiber, landline and TV services for Rs 600 per month. There could also be some additional facilities, along with an option to connect about 40 devices to Jio GigaFiber’s smart home network by paying up to Rs 1,000.
“While the triple combo—which will offer 600 channels with seven-day catch-up option, landline and 100 Mbps broadband—will be priced Rs 600 a month, the tariff for adding other smart home services may cost extra and depending on the plan, the tariff could go up to Rs 1,000 a month," the person with knowledge of the development told Livemint. The areas where the Jio GigaFiber service is already present, the company offers 100GB free data at 100Mbps speeds for a month. It could add landline and TV services to existing connections in the next three months and the service is said to remain free for a year, until it is commercially rolled out.
As per the report, the landline service will enable unlimited calling for users, while the TV facility will stream television channels over the internet via IPTV. In addition, the company might enable users to install security cameras and the footage captured by them might be saved in the cloud, thanks to a minimum speed of 100mbps that the company touted will go up to 1gbps. The company already announced that the service would be made available simultaneously in 1,100 cities across India but it recently bumped up the number of cities to 1,600.
