Reliance Jio’s home broadband service JioFiber is expected to be launched around Diwali in October this year. According to reports, the newbie telecom service provider could launch the service offering competitive data packs as cheap as 100GB data at Rs 500 only. Just like the telecom services, Reliance Jio’s JioFiber service is likely to cause ripples in the broadband market forcing telecom giants including Tata Docomo, Airtel, BSNL and MTNL to offer their services at cheaper rates.
However, this is not for the first time that reports suggesting the launch date of JioFiber service have surfaced online. Earlier, reports suggested that the company was planning to launch the service in June. Furthermore, the company has been testing its broadband service in selected regions, including Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Surat, Delhi, Jamnagar and Vadodara, across the country offering 1000GB data at a speed of 100 MB per second.
Meanwhile, Bharti Airtel las week launched a special offer for its broadband users offering up to 1000 GB extra data on their existing packs which will be valid for a year. As a part of the new offer, Airtel users will get 750 GB extra data on the pack of Rs 899. On the other hand, subscribers opting for plans above Rs 1,099 will get 1,000 GB bonus data for a year. The offer, however, was limited to the Delhi-NCR region.
Newbie Reliance Jio launched its mobile services last year in September. The company offered unlimited calls and data plans at competitive rates in the country. Jio’s offers rattled the major telecom companies in the country to form alliances and drop their charges.
