Now, more details about Reliance Jio Fiber FTTH have surfaced, along with rumored tariff plans, which could start as low as Rs 500.
What is Jio Fiber broadband?
Jio Fiber broadband is basically fiber to the home (FTTH) service. It’s quite similar to your existing wireline broadband service, except for the fact that Jio Fiber uses fiber optic technology for establishing high-speed connection. It can offer speeds up to 1Gbps (or 125MBps). Do note, here its MBps (megabytes per second) and not Mbps (megabits per second). What it means is that the network is capable of downloading 125MB per second. Theoretically, if you want to download a video of 500MB, it would roughly take four seconds, when at full speed. Yes, it’s that insanely fast. Mukesh Ambani did mention during his speech that the service will be offered to both home and business subscribers.
Speed based tariffs: There are five plans, each having a validity of 30 days. The first plan offers 50Mbps speed with data cap of 2,000GB (or 2TB). The other plans offer – 100Mbps speed with data cap of 1,000GB (or 1TB), 200Mbps with data cap of 750GB, 400Mbps with data cap of 500GB and 600Mbps with data cap of 300GB. As you can see, as speed increases, the amount of data you can download decreases. However, the pricing for these plans is unknown. All plans also include free app usage between Rs 1,500 to Rs 5,500, which differs from one plan to the other.
Volume based tariff: There are five plans in here, each having validity of 30 days. While the pricing and speed isn’t mentioned, you get data of 5GB per day, to 60GB per day. It also includes free app usage between Rs 1,500 to Rs 5,500 for different plans.
