After 4G, Reliance Jio prepares to launch home broadband
Fibre optic broadband internet by Reliance Jio will soon be coming into play providing up to 1Gbps speed with Jio's fibre to home services.
Jio’s website, under ‘Quick Recharges’, featured two new icons on Friday in addition to Mobile & JioFi, Wi-Fi Hotspot and Jio Apps there was Home Broadband recharge and Jio Link.
However the newest links have not yet been activated.
In his speech on August 31, 2016, Managing Director Reliance Industries Ltd, Mukesh Ambani said that the company would soon launch (Fibre to the home) FTTH service providing broadband speed of up to 1Gbps.
Cable installments and FTTH services in Mumbai and Pune were reportedly tested in September when the company was launched.
Jio has also been looking at launching Internet Protocol television (IPTV) services with its ‘Jio Link,’ a report by Gadgets 360 said on Friday adding that the launch date has not been set.
After its Jio Summer Surprise offer was asked to be discontinued by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on Thursday the company issued a statement that as per ‘operational feasibility’ the plan would be withdrawn.
While Jio has accepted TRAI’s terms its website states that customers can still subscribe to the Rs 303 recharge (or higher plans) to avail of the Summer Surprise offer till the company finalises on the discontinuation of the plan.
