It is also available for individual/independent homes provided jio has plans of providing connections in your locality/colony.

One query,Folks.

Can the JioFiber be available for personal or individual House?
I mean, is it only entitled for a Housing society? Or large Apartments,with lots of Flats and Families?

To @meetdilip , @billubakra , @whitestar_999 , @Zangetsu ?
Any idea or info,brothers?
It is available for individual house/flat provided it has started service in your area. That thing on the registration page means more the number of registrations from an area/society the faster they will get there.

They will need certain no. of connections at your area for them to start providing connections during the initial days. If that is met, people could get those ₹ 700 basic plans with 1 Gbps ( 2 months free ?) as individual connection.

Anybody moving to JioFiber ? They are offering share files within home network and outside. What is it ? Something like Plex ?

Plex is meant for media streaming,this looks more like a pseudo-static IP sharing(also possible on any normal connection with software & dynamic dns services like no-ip,dyndns etc also present in many routers).

Any updates about this from the existing users ? I am hearing this for the first time. I think not rolled out during the test phase.

Do we have to pay annual payment to get the gateway and set-top box free ? Or 2.5 k + monthly rent is all we have to pay ?

Apparently the OTT services will only work via the set top box they give you, you won't get online accounts to use on your PC, phone, etc

I have been using Jio fiber for the last few days.

Router is pre configured, it can be used out of the box without any further configuration. At the time installation, they said I can use My Jio app to access/manage everything. Since I don't have a smartphone, the initial things I asked were done by the technician using his smartphone. I was told I can access router interface from browser and manage it from there.

For the last two days I am trying to figure out the things, as I am not used with this kinda router before. I don't know what's the point of having half a dozen access points/profiles (WLAN). By default, two of them are up - one is 2.4ghz and another is 5ghz. There don't seems to be any option to delete the other access points.

It looks like the bandwidth profile is only for upstream, if there are too many devices connected I can't limit anyone's bandwidth. I don't even know if that upstream limit is working or not. Comparing with my old DSL connection, I am using 3x that data with Fiber. Since it's unlimited, I don't have to worry about that.

@nac : Is this connection completely wireless?Did they install any cabling from their end to your home/apartment to provide the jio fiber connectivity?

How much did you have to pay for the initial setup and the necessary peripherals (router etc)?And which of their monthly plans have you subscribed to at the moment?

PS: Does jiofiber block access to warez portals by default?

It's optical fiber line. Optical fiber cable looks pretty much like telephone line atleast to me exterior looks like that. With telephone line, we can bend or even make a knot, but with optical fiber they say we shouldn't and that will damage or even break the line.

They have a pole in the street and a box is already installed in the pole itself. A line running from the post to my house, they kept the cable as it is until the line come into my house, after that they spliced one part of the line and removed it entirely. I guess they didn't need that part anymore. And there is a small palm size box, something similar to telephone connection. They installed that close to where I want the router.

Modem has four lan port, two usb port, one port for optical fiber and power line. There is a button for WPS, other than that no button at all not even power button. And no antennas for Wifi, they say it's internal. Only one led light, and nothing else.

It's Rs. 1500/- as they advertised including GST and everything. Router comes with power adapter, ethernet cable, telephone line cable (each 1 no.).

As of now I haven't subscribed to any plan, as you now it's a trial period. I am intending to go for the base plan.

Never heard of warez before, googled and its something to do with piracy thing. I don't think forum allows to discuss about that.

@nac , do you stay in Kolkata or along the Suburbs?
I am keen to know about your feedback and usage of Jio Fiber. Though Alliance BB is running very good ,still interested in Jio Fiber.
In fact I am ready to go for the Rs.999.00 pack per month with Cable TV set top box combination. Means needed to spend Rs.2500.00 initially.
