When Mukesh Ambani announced Reliance Jio’s plans at the company’s annual general meeting on August 31, he also mentioned that Reliance will soon launch FTTH (fiber to the home) service, which will be capable of delivering broadband speed up to 1Gbps. A little has been on news about this FTTH service, however, a new report about Reliance Jio Fiber suggests equally aggressive broadband data plans as Reliance Jio for Mobile.
According to Phone Radar, Reliance Jio will first start testing its FTTH broadband service in Delhi and Mumbai. It also says that the service is now open under Welcome Offer for 90 days, similar to Jio’s Welcome Offer for 4G on mobile. The report says that after the 90 days Reliance Jio will launch its data plans starting at Rs 500.
The Reliance Jio Fiber broadband service will offer data plans under three different categories: Silver, Gold and Platinum. The report doesn’t specify how these three plans will work. But it says that tariffs will be based on speed, volume and price.
There is no information regarding the charges in Speed-based and Volume-based tariffs as of yet. The “Special Offer Tariffs” have the minimum plan for Rs 500, for which the company will offer 600GB of data at 15Mbps speed for 30 days.
The company will also offer a single day plan for Rs 400 which will give unlimited data usage for a day. There are two more plans for Rs 500, one of which will have a 3.5GB cap per day and will be applicable for a month. The other Rs 500 plan will allow a user 72 hours of usage over 30 days. The speed in this tariff should reach up to 60Mbps.
Since there are three Rs 500 plans, we expect them to come with different names or perhaps Reliance will decide the nomenclature when it officially launches the service.
The speed-based plans start at 50Mbps and go up to 600Mbps. The data cap for the 50Mbps plan is 2000GB and it goes down to 300GB for the 600Mbps plan. All these plans are applicable for 30 days. These plans will also offer Jio app usage from Rs 1,500 to Rs Rs 5,500 according to the value of the plan.
All the volume-based tariff plans have validity of 30 days. These plans have been divided on the basis of per day usage. The volume-based plans go from 5GB per day to 60GB per day. The report doesn’t mention any speed or prices for these plans.
There is no official word on this report so we suggest you to take this with a pinch of salt. We expect Reliance to make an official announcement regarding the FTTH service in the coming days.
