After 4G mobile services, Reliance Jio on Thursday started registration for optical fibre based fixed-line broadband service through which it has claimed to offer download speed of one gigabit per second.
“JioGigaFiber. Make your neighbourhood Gigaready with Gigabit wifi, TV, smart home, free calling and more,” read the registration option in MyJio App.
At present, major rivals of Jio offer download speed up to 100 megabit per second for around Rs 1,000 per month for home users.
Jio claims to offer around 10 times more speed to home users. Though the company has not disclosed its price yet, however, there have been reports that it will trigger a stiff competition among telecom firms.
Jio’s entry in mobile services led to free voice call for the first time, and data prices dipped by over 95 percent since the time it commenced services.
