Okay , I get it.
Actually,quite some people in my neighbourhood are using Jio Fiber,and lot many are still on Alliance Broadband.
There are two Jio Fiber Main distribution boxes with a lot of Fiber curled up properly in two different poles just aoutside the boundary wall of my House.

Just thinking,whether ditching the Loyal Alliance BB in favour of JioFiber will be better or not?:-?:chinscratch:

If possible do post the speed you are getting here :

Interested to see how much speed do they offer in trail period ? BTW, this trial period is for how many days ?
As advertised 150mbps during trial period, in LAN I am getting about 140mbps both down/upstream. Trial is for 30 days.

Asked the technician to check how much he's getting over wifi in his smartphone, but totally forgot as we were busy activating landline at that time.
In Jio phone over wifi I got about 12mbps download and about 1.8mbps upload.

If your existing ISP is good, why bother.
As they say, better the devil you know. One of the reason I stayed with BSNL was they will respond if I book a complaint or atleast that was the case until before this time. I don't know how Jio will act in such cases. Hope all stay good.

I don't know if the max data rate is shown somewhere in the modem interface page. I tried to find, but it's not there. If it's available, please let me know.

Checked the bandwidth profile and traffic selectors. It works, but not sure about few things. I just wanted to go little extreme and test. So set 512kbps as Upstream bandwidth, and created three profiles 10%, 50%, 100% of upstream bandwidth as limit. In traffic selectors, I set my desktop and applied each profiles and tested. Here are the results,

So the Upstream bandwidth limit works, but also affects the download speed as well. It's not clear why and how it affects.

Just fyi even if doesn't affect majority of users, "truly unlimited" in case of airtel & jio means around 3.3TB of total data usage per month beyond which they start throttling the speeds.

That's insane amount of data cap limit set. For me even 1~2 TB is more than enough as I don't download much.

Yeah, remember reading somewhere, probably in terms and conditions.

My usage didn't suddenly change after I moved from DSL to Fiber. But going by the statement, my data usage got tripled. Will see how much I use by the end of the month.

Tested bandwidth profiles with various limits, even @ 1gbps my data rate is been reduced to half of my max speed (150mbps). We're setting the limit for upstream, but it affects download as well. But it's not clear, from 1mbps to 1gbps download rate is same and upload rate is in line with the limit set but that works until we hit that 50% (about 75mbps) of my max speed. Post that it doesn't work. Here are the results,

It didn't took much time to test this, but even testing bandwidth consumes lot of data. It took about 3GB data for me to test this.

Holy smoke !!! :shock: That's a lot.
I think that 3.3TB includes both download and upload, right?
Factually speaking, I am okay with any FUP limit. Post FUP pretty much everyone is offering 1mbps or so. I am okay with that, as was the case with my ex-ISP - BSNL.
I never stop any torrent & just leave them seeding :)
Yes fup limit incl both upload & download as far as I know. I know my usage is exceptional hence said that 3.3TB per month limit won't affect more than 99% of users.

Friends do you suggest me to switch over Jio Fiber?
I am ready with the Rs.2500.00 Deposit money (OTT availability with TV set top box functionality) and per month Plan of Rs.999.00 + GST.

How about Jio Fiber Customer Care??

just 2-3 days back saw sarcasticsindhi's video in which after 2 weeks of trial it is not working and no one resolved it even after 4-5 days.
i would say only one thing - if what you are using is sufficient for you and you are not having problems, don't change. i have not gone for it even though the person called me up 4-5 times. person residing above me has taken it some 2 years back & i think it works ok but so it my airtel vdsl.
