Jio GigaFiber Plans, Pricing, Launch Date: All You Need to Know

Jio GigaFiber service to launch on 5 Sept 2019

"Over the next 12 months, Jio [Reliance Jio Infocomm] will install across India one of the largest blockchain networks in the world with tens of thousands of nodes operational on day one", Ambani announced to shareholders at RIL's 42nd annual general meeting.

Voice calls from Jio Fiber fixed line phones to anywhere across India will be free for life. "On fixed-line global voice calling, we are today ending the era of high worldwide calling rates on landline by announcing the lowest fixed line rates for global calling...", he said.

Jio GigaFiber has been announced and will be available commercially starting from 5th September 2019.

"...The average fixed-line download speed in the United States which is the most developed economy is around 90 Mbps". The speed goes up to 1Gbps and the premium for it will be Rs 10,000 a month, which also includes access to broadband, Jio HomeTV and Jio's IoT.

The Jio STB includes subscriptions to many, popular OTT streaming services.

Under a premium plan, customers will be able to watch movies at home on the day of their release in theatres.

Jio GigaFiber, the promising optical fibre-based service that was announced previous year, received a list of updates at the 42nd Annual General Meeting (AGM) by Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) on Monday.


The 10-year comprehensive commitment combines the world-class capabilities of both companies to offer a detailed set of solutions comprising connectivity, computing, storage solutions, and other technology services for Indian businesses. Jio, however, still hasn't elaborated on all the plans and their exact prices.

According to the company's latest shareholder communication, Reliance Retail and Jio are said to have collectively contributed almost 32% to the consolidated EBITDA of the Indian conglomerate, which is up from the 2% figure, five years ago. Voice calls from home will be absolutely free forever for all Jio Fiber subscribers with ISD calls being offered for much lower as well.

Jio Postpaid is available to any customers who want to buys Jio SIM. They also haven't revealed the data threshold that will come with each plan.

It is not known if the TVs will entirely be free or if there will be a security deposit before customers get it. Reliance Jio is also set to offer an HD LED TV or 4K TV alongside a 4K set-top box for customers opting for an annual plan called Jio Forever Plan.

According to Ambani, this is the biggest foreign investment in the history of Reliance and is among the largest foreign investments in India. Ambani said that India was "data dark" before the entry of Jio, and its launch has made India "data-shining bright". The venture aims to connect the country's kirana stores with Reliance's high-speed digital platform, tapping into the millions of consumers who are likely to order supplies and provisions through the platform. The two businesses, which function as separate subsidiaries, will be listed in the next five years, Ambani said.

Reliance Industries CMD Mukesh Ambani has said that the corporate giant will become a "zero net-debt company" within the next 18 months.
