According to a previous report, it was stated that the company is already running beta trails for the service in about 10,000 homes at the time of writing to further tweak the network to ensure that it works as intended. In addition to customers, the company will also be aiming at providing its JioGigaFiber services to small businesses to provide fast internet so that they can switch to using faster online based solutions including cloud apps.

JioGigaFiber pricing

The company has not revealed any information about the pricing of JioGigaFiber at the time of writing. Some reports have surfaced on the internet hinting at what could be the expected pricing for the FTTH broadband service, but we can t really be sure. Amid all this, a new report by Trak has surfaced on the internet highlighting the expected pricing of the JioGigaFiber plans. According to the report, the company is likely to offer five plans and all these plans will come with free data for the first three months.

The plans start off with the cheapest plans at Rs 500 per month where users will get 50Mbps internet speed for up to 300GB usage with 30-day validity. Once this limit is crossed, the company is expected to drop the speed but it can, it theory offer unlimited data. The second plan will be for Rs 750 per month where users will get 50Mbps speed with 30-day validity for up to 450GB and then unlimited data at a reduced speed. The third plan will cost Rs 999 while giving users 100Mbps internet speed for up to 600GB usage and then unlimited data at a reduced speed with the validity of 30 days.

Rs 1,299 will be the fourth plan that the company is expected to launch that will offer internet access at 100mbps for up to 750GB usage and then unlimited data at reduced speed with 30-day validity. The last plan for Rs 1,500 will offer internet speed of 150Mbps for up to 900GB of usage with unlimited data at a reduced speed with a validity of up to 30 days as mentioned in the report.

JioGigaFiber availability

The company has not fixed a concrete date for the roll out yet. The reason for this is because the company is still facing issues when it comes to the last mile connectivity . This means that connecting and bringing the optical fibers to the home of the consumers is proving to be difficult. A recent report pointed out that Jio may be looking at teaming up with local cable operators to help resolve the problems with last mile connectivity . It also pointed out, The process of laying fiber outside has been stopped due to unfavorable weather as the government does not give permission to dig during rains.

This came after reports that the company was looking at a staged rollout where it would target 15-20 key cities with high data demand. The report also pointed out that the company will prioritize its home broadband services roll-out to the localities which have the highest number of registrations.

JioGigaFiber registration

Interested users can head to the Jio website or MyJio app to make the registration. The registration portal is not live yet but it is expected that the company will make it live on August 15, 2018.
