Reliance Communications will hold its Annual General Meeting today (Monday). The annual event by Reliance is attended by all the high-level officials from the company. It is expected that Jio GigaFiber announcement will be made today at the event. Mukesh Ambani headed company announced GigaFiber last year which was in the testing phase.
We can expect Reliance to put forward all the details regarding Jio GigaFiber plans, pricing and data. Jio has completed Fiber wire installation in all the major cities and many towns also. Wire installation was done in major cities last year itself. Jio intends to launch GigaFiber in around 2400 cities and town offering high-speed internet with download speeds of up to 1 GB/s.
Jio earlier disrupted mobile internet market by introducing highly competitive 4G plans. It now has plans to enter the FTTH (Fiber To The Home) market and offer fast internet at affordable prices. Mobile internet on Jio is also complemented with free local, STD and roaming voice calls. We can expect some good freebies with Jio GigaFiber also.
Jio GigaFiber was being run as an invite-only service from last one year. Its service was offered to limited users and cities. They were offering 100 GB of data per month under this scheme. Jio GigaFiber received applications from all over India. Apart from offering high-speed internet, Jio also intends to provide smart home solutions with GigaFiber. These IoT devices like LED bulbs, geysers, will be connected to the internet and can be controlled through a smartphone app.
