The telco is offering a high-speed connection along with unlimited free calling to any network.
Priced at Rs 777 and Rs 1,277, BSNL in June introduced two new FTTH (Fibre-to-the-Home) plans. It is offering 500 GB monthly data at 50 Mbps under the Rs 777 plan, while the Rs 1277 plan comes with 750 GB monthly data at 100 Mbps speed.
Yesterday at Annual General Meeting of Reliance Industries, Reliance Jio announced a new host of services in the FTTH( Fibre-to-the-Home) sector. The telco announced its new service of Jio GigaFiber and Jio GigaTV. With 1Gbps speed, Jio will be offering its fibre broadband service to 1,100 cities initially. The registration for the service would start on August 15th on My Jio app and Jio official website reported Telecom Talk.
According to the report, given the latest announcement of Jio’s GigaFiber and its plan of entering the fibre broadband sector, other incumbent telecom operators providing broadband services might be threatened.

Jio’s past record has established the fact that the Mukesh Ambani led telco is set for yet another disruption in industry after triggering the data tariff war. Keeping this in mind, BSNL’s roll out of this new ‘most economic broadband plan’ might be a defence towards what is yet to come from Reliance Jio’s side.
BSNL and Bharti Airtel are leading telecom operators in the home broadband services sector at present. With RJio's launch of fibre broadband services, it will be a threat to other entities.
