Jio GigaFiber May Take More Time to Roll Out
It’s been five months since Jio introduced its broadband service. The telecom operator has already announced the cities that will be getting the first wave of the Jio GigaFiber service. The broadband service is yet to launch on a full-commercial scale but the preview offer is already up and running. The offer allows the subscribers to enjoy free 100GB data per month for three months. After the preview offer ends, the subscribers can migrate to a paid plan or cancel the service altogether. Jio is also offering free installation for the service after you deposit a security fund of Rs. 4500.
Jio has still not announced the paid plans for Jio GigaFiber. However, the telco is most likely to adopt the 4G model for the broadband service. So, we can hope to see some aggressive pricing for Jio GigaFiber plans. Ever since the launch, Reliance Jio has remained aggressive with its pricing which is getting the other telcos all worked up. Speaking of, employees at BSNL has announced to go on an indefinite strike in protest of predatory pricing from Reliance Jio. The BSNL unions allege that the government is also favoring Reliance Jio, which is responsible for creating financial woes in the telecom industry. Jio has not commented on the whole fiasco yet. If the situation snowballs from here, the Jio GigaFiber rollout might get pushed back.
