Jio GigaFiber reportedly offering less powerful router, voice benefits at reduced price of Rs 2,500
  • Jio GigaFiber enrollment now reportedly starts at Rs 2,500.
  • The company is said to be bundling a less powerful router with the service for a reduced price.
  • Users might also get to avail free voice benefits with a landline connection.

It has been a while since we heard about what’s happening with the Jio GigaFiber service. The company announced it during its 41st AGM event and while the registrations for it started in August last year, the roll-out has been quite slow. However, it seems like the company is now gearing up for a broader roll-out of the service as it is reportedly offering a less expensive, and apparently less powerful, version of its optical network terminal (ONT) device. As per a report by a Twitter user, Jio has lowered the security deposit of its GigaFiber service to Rs 2,500, down from Rs 4,500 and is offering a less powerful internet router.

As per the Twitter user Preshit Deorukhkar, the Jio GigaFiber router that comes with Rs 2,500 deposit is a single band router. It is said to support only the 2.4GHz b/g/n Wi-Fi, which means there’s no high-speed 5GHz band support. Additionally, the speed is capped to about 50Mbps but the company is also apparently bundling voice services with the connection. The router reportedly features three RJ45 ports, one RJ11 and one USB2.0 on the back, however, the ethernet ports are said to be 10/100 and not Gigabit. One might also be able to install the JioVoice app on their smartphone to extend the voice service. The new service is expected to be made available wider in the coming weeks. 

The news comes soon after a report that the company is testing a “Triple Play” plan. Jio is said to be testing a new plan under which users will be offered internet, voice calls, Jio TV subscription and access to Jio apps all with a single plan. If the company is indeed offering voice benefits with new GigaFiber connection, as the new report suggests, then there is a possibility that Jio TV plans might also be soon introduced alongside broadband services.
