High-speed Broadband for home and businesses
JIo fiber is a 1 Gbps broadband service that will be available for home users. As of now, only BSNL offers 1 GBPS connection, but it is too expensive for a normal user. With such bandwidth, the user can download full-length movies within 4 to 5 minutes. If you’re a web developer, you will be also able to host websites at your home.
According to an Indian Express report, RJIO has deployed lakhs of kilometer fiber optic cables across the country. Thus, every major city in India will be in the coverage area for 1 GBPS broadband connection.
Reliance will launch a wallet service for smartphones. It is expected to acquire a license for establishing a payment bank.
As of now, the RJIO services are available only for the Reliance employees. If you work for the organization, you can enjoy 75 GB of free 4G data.
RJio will be launched commercially by the end of April 2016. If you’re planning to buy an internet connection, we would recommend you to wait for a couple of months as you can expect to get a better deal with RJio.
If tariffs on RJIO internet plans are good, local ISPs like Hathway, Tikona, GTPL, You Broadband will go through difficult times. Established companies like Airtel, Idea, and Vodafone will lose customers if they don’t reduce tariffs on 2G, 3G or 4G data plans.
