Mukesh Ambani seems to be playing reformer of Internet services in India. By giving away free internet for months to Indian citizens, he posed a great threat to other telecom services and brought down prices.
Now, it is time for broadband service providers to up their game because Team Jio is planning to offer 100Mbps fiber broadband connections with a free 90-day trial. JioFiber is ready to launch in few cities across the country. The services are currently being tested in Delhi, Chennai, and Mumbai.
The product is said to provide “the best indoor coverage and connectivity with the Fiber Home Gateway,” as a Reliance officer informs. It will be interesting to see if these ‘attractive’ offers will live up to the expectations or fall in the pits of inconsistency like Jio 4G.
JioFiber will offer a whopping 100GB download limit for a month on a 100Mbps connection. What double century, Mr. Ambani! However, the connection will slow down to 1Mbps post the threshold. The installation charges will be refundable before the trial expires.
Now, we are to witness how this second coming of Reliance Jio will shake the players like Bharti Airtel and Hathway from their monopoly and bring about drastic changes in the price structure. In any case, we will definitely go back home with something.
