Monthly plans for Jio Fiber have been finally announced after waiting for the whole day. People on the internet were going crazy waiting for an update from Jio regarding plans and data usage. They are finally here and we can break down the plans to see if Jio Fiber is worth the hype.
First of all, if you are interested in getting Jio Fiber installed at your home, you will have to give an upfront amount of ₹ 2,500 out of which ₹ 1,500 will be deposited as a security fee. This money will be adjusted in your last bill if you choose to disconnect Jio Fiber. The remaining ₹1,000 will be charged as installation fee which is non-refundable.
ONE THING MORE TO NOTICE HERE IS THAT THE EXTRA 50GB DATA THAT YOU ARE GETTING WITH THE BRONZE PLAN IS APPLICABLE ONLY FOR FIRST 6 MONTHS.
Users subscribing to Gold or above annual packs will be entitled to free TV
The cheapest plan of Jio Fiber starts from ₹699 which comes with 100MB/s speed with only 100GB+50GB monthly data usage. Even the basic plan is very expensive according to us if you consider the data usage. 150GB data cap on high-speed Fiber internet for 30 days translates to just 5GB data a day. Go with Jio Fiber if you can live with 5GB data a day on 100MB/s connection. For even a normal family usage, 150GB data can’t suffice monthly usage. Also, the additional 50GB data is valid for the first 6 months only. After 6 months, Jio Fiber will offer 100GB monthly data only.
After 150GB, your speed will be capped at 1MB/s with unlimited usage beyond this point. It still is a very expensive plan and there are better alternatives available.
Broadband providers like NetPlus offer absolutely no data capping with their plans. Pay for the speed and get absolutely unlimited data usage for a month. Even BSNL has better plans than what Jio Fiber has come up with. The hope of disrupting the broadband market will die with these plans.
Honestly, I can’t suggest Jio Fiber to anyone post these plans. Personally, I am using Netplus Broadband that offers 100MB/s speed with truly unlimited monthly data for just ₹999. My monthly data usage goes well beyond 700GB if I take all my devices into account.
They have announced a total of 6 different plans with Titanium plan being the most expensive one. Titanium plan will cost ₹8,499 + taxes monthly with 1GB/s speed and 5,000GB monthly data. This is targeted at offices and companies with high data requirement. Users with Platinum or Titanium plans will get access to Jio’s VR Experience and First Day-First-Show movies which will be coming next year.
Are you willing to spend ₹699 + additional taxes a month for 100+50GB data? Would love to hear your views in comments below.
