Reliance Jio had kicked off the much awaited GigaFiber registration service on August 15. The company has officially claimed that the broadband service will be launched simultaneously in more than 1,000 towns and cities, but the installation notification will be based on demand. It had not announced any tariff plans. Now, preview offer details have surfaced online.
It has come to light that Reliance Jio will soon commence notifying registered subscribers. As part of the promotional preview programme, it will offer free broadband service for the first three months with 100Mbps speed and the data cap of 100GB per month. If the customer exhausts the limit, he or she can opt for top-ups, which adds 40GB to subscription. They can request for more top-ups of up to 1.1TB per month during the trial period. The best part is that it will be free of cost, Telecom Talk reported citing reliable company insider.
But, there's a catch; the customer will be charged Rs 4,500 for installation. On the bright side, it will be refunded if the consumer discontinues the service after the free trial period. They will also have to return the devices — GigaRouter and GigaTV — in working condition with no physical damage.
For those unaware, Jio GigaFiber consumers are entitled to get Jio GigaRouter, which promises high-speed wall-to-wall wireless internet connection throughout the home. Users can also subscribe to GigaTV set-top box with all channels, on-demand video (also available in 4K), music content, support voice-command in multiple regional languages and TV video calling (compatible to any smart devices including smart TVs powered by Jio GigaFiber and even phones under another network carrier).
The company has also announced to offer Smart Home solutions, which include an audio dongle, video dongle, smart speaker, Wi-Fi extender, smart plug, TV camera, outdoor camera security, door sensors and motion detection. The best part about this is that engineers will be able to assemble them within an hour.
