The new free basic broadband plan comes with a speed of 10 Mbps and will have no FUP limit for now. However, users will still be required to purchase the Wi-Fi router and pay a refundable deposit of Rs 1,500. Customers opting for the basic broadband plan will be shifted to other JioFiber plans later, likely once the Coronavirus crisis is under control. Jio also mentioned that the company was taking extra efforts to minimize any downtime as network connectivity is essential during a period when most people are working from home.

In other news, Reliance Jio also recently introduced the Work from Home recharge pack of Rs 251. The new Jio recharge provides users with 102GB data benefit, at 2GB per day. It is essentially the cricket pack Jio usually had during the IPL season. The new Jio pack is sort of an add-on package that gives users additional data benefits beyond what is allocated in their daily allotment. Hence, let’s say your regular plan offers you 2GB of daily data. Then the new Work From Home pack will kick automatically in after you use up the daily 2GB.
