Reliance Jio GigaFiber will have a speed of 1 Gbps! Read below to know more.
Reliance Group of Industries have been one of the biggest business groups in India. Mukesh Ambani is also ranked in the top 20 richest people in the world. Reliance has been one of the biggest names in various industries around the world. One of the biggest companies by Reliance group is their latest venture Reliance Jio.
Reliance Jio has been one of the most successful telecom brands in India ever. Actually, Jio is the largest internet provider in India with over 185,000,000 subscribers. Within a span of less than 5 years, they have managed to earn such a huge number of subscribers. Unlimited domestic and national calling, internet and messaging – all these features for a very minimal price, these have resulted in such a fast and huge growth of Jio.
However, jio is now all set to launch their own broadband service, ‘GigaFiber’. Reliance Jio has started the registration for optical fiber based fixed-line broadband service with which Reliance claims to offer a download speed of 1 Gbps with GigaFiber. There was an option for registration on the MyJio smartphone app which read, ‘Jio GigaFiber’. Make your neighborhood #Gigaready with Gigabit wifi, TV, smart home, free calling and more.” As of now, the biggest competitors of jio offer a download speed up to 100 Mbps for around INR 1000/month for home users.
Jio GigaFiber claims to offer a speed which is more than 10 times of that to the home users. The company, however, has not disclosed the price yet. But it will give rise to a tough competition among the telecom firms. This service will be launched across 1,100 cities simultaneously. An announcement by Mukesh D Ambani stated that this GigaFiber connection will be launched in those 1,100 cities to homes, merchants, small and medium enterprises and even large enterprises.
Mr. Mukesh Ambani said, “For the home, this will mean ultra high definition entertainment on your large screen televisions, multi-party video conferencing from the comfort of your living room, voice-activated virtual assistants who obey your every command, virtual reality gaming and digital shopping.” He also said that the broadband services of jio will enable smart home solutions with the help of which hundreds of devices like security cameras, home appliances even lights and switches can be safely controlled by their owners using just their smartphone
without having to worry that they are in or out of the house. At the HT Leadership Summit 2017, Ambani said, “Just one year back, India was ranked 150th in the world for mobile broadband. Now it is number one, after the launch of Jio.
In countries with better-developed communication infrastructure, more than 80 percent of data consumption happens indoors through fixed line connectivity in homes, in offices and other premises. Jio is determined to move India to among the top 5 in fixed-line broadband, too,” said Ambani.
One thing to keep in mind is that the registration process has started since 15 August 2018. They will be prioritizing those areas which receive the maximum registrations. In simpler words, the more the registrations, the faster you will get your GigaFiber connection.
Mr. Mukesh Ambani has been working towards a very good cause of uplifting the global image of India. We might, in the next 10 years, see India in the top 5 countries with the best-fixed line broadband connection.
