The broadband offering from Reliance Jio has been in the news for over a year now. Finally, the Mukesh Ambani-led company is all set to foray into the broadband business. The company has already revolutionized the Indian telecom industry and now is all ready to launch its own low-cost internet services with JioFiber. Jio disrupted the equilibrium of the telecom market by offering free 4G services for a staggering period of six months and later went on to launch aggressively priced plans which forced its competitors to drop their prices as well. With JioFiber, we can expect a similar disruption in the Indian broadband space. JioFiber will make way for high-speed broadband internet services in the country which will carry data speeds as high as 1GBPS at extremely affordable prices.
The launch date is not yet finalised, but as per the early reports, JioFiber is expected to go live by early March or by the end of this financial year. JioFiber is currently in the testing phase in as many as 10 cities across the country for over six months now. Jio is providing its broadband services in select regions like Surat, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Delhi NCR, Hyderabad and Jamnagar.
