Jio GigaFiber Plans to be Priced Aggressively
Although we have no idea about the pricing details of Jio’s upcoming broadband service, we do know that the prices will be fairly competitive. The company has already confirmed following the 4G marketing model for Jio GigaFiber. Jio’s prepaid recharge plans are known for affordable pricing and unlimited incentives and if that’s the frame of reference, broadband users are in for a treat. Not only that, Jio GigaFiber has been achieving milestones in several performance tests ahead of its commercial launch. For instance, the broadband service recently aced the Netflix ISP Speed Index test with an average playback rate of 3.41 Mbps. Furthermore, it’s wireless counterpart has been ranked as the fastest operator in terms of download speed for the month of October.
Recently, Reliance Jio also passed a call drop test on highways and major rail routes in India. Incidentally, none of the other major telcos were able to meet the criteria. News like these not only improves the reputation of the current service but also builds trust and motivates the user to look out for upcoming services. Reliance Jio has built up quite a lot and the customers are eagerly waiting to get onboard. Now that the names of the cities to get the initial rollout have come to light, we can expect the company to launch the service on a full scale soon. As the time of the final launch approaches, the other telecom operators are revamping their old plans and introducing new ones to keep their users from migrating to Jio GigaFiber.
