How to request Jio Fiber

The application process for Jio Fiber is simple and online: you can request a Jio Fiber broadband connection on your website. Once services begin in your area, the Reliance Jio sales team will contact you to search for identity documents and then connect. So far, about 5 lakh people have already requested a Jio Fiber connection.

Beginning of an exciting new journey: Akash Ambani

Akash Ambani, Director, Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd, at the commercial launch of Jio Fiber, said the company will work hard to provide more services of this type.

“Our customers are at the heart of everything we do, and everything JioFiber has been designed with the sole purpose of providing you with a delightful experience. The launch of JioFiber, with its revolutionary services, is just the beginning of an exciting new journey, “he added.

Expected speeds

At AGM, Isha Ambani and Akash Ambani demonstrated the speeds of the next broadband service. The screens showed maximum speeds of 1,008 Mbps and a latency (or ping) of 3 ms. The current preview offer that customers have speeds limited to 100Mbps.

First Day First Show

Reliance Fiber will present “a disruptive concept” to watch new movies at home on launch day. This service will be launched in mid-2020, but it is worth mentioning now.

Competition

Earlier this week, Bharti Airtel announced a new STB for $ 3,999 on the Xstream platform to offer content from mobile video streaming applications, except for some leading players, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Videos and Hotstar.

It is also available in the form a USB stick, much like the Amazon Fire Stick or Google Chromecast.

Airtel Xstream subscribers gain access to ZEE5, Hooq, Hoi Choi, Eros Now, HungamaPlay, ShemarooMe, Ultra and Curiosity Stream during the first year after which customers can continue their subscription by paying an annual fee of ₹ 999.

The STB can also connect to the Airtel DTH service to access live TV channels.

Jio Forever Plans

Ambani at the AGM presented the Jio Forever Plans that will offer long-term users a 4k HD or LED TV and a 4k decoder for free. The brand and brand of the TV could be announced today.

Jio turns three today

The youngest and most profitable telecommunications operator in the country took the revolutionary step of making voice calls completely free and reduced data prices three years ago. Ambani attributes the idea to his daughter Isha Ambani, who had complained about the slow internet speeds at his home in Mumbai when he was on vacation during his college days at Yale. Here is a look at the idea of the telecommunications company.

Reliance Industries shares march

Reliance Industries shares rose before the commercial launch of its Jio Fiber broadband services. Shares of Reliance Industries Ltd rose 0.6% while those of its rival Bharti Airtel Ltd fell 0.6%. The price of its shares rose more than 3% since August 12.

Fixed services

Reliance will offer fixed line services with all its fiber packages. Voice calls to any Indian operator would be free. Jio also promised to reduce the prices of international calls.

“The ISD call rates would be 1/5 to 1/10 of the industry rates. We are offering an unlimited US / Canada package at $ 500 per month,” Ambani told AGM.

Free decoder for everyone: sources

“All Jio Fiber customers will receive a courtesy decoder,” the PTI source said. Jio Fiber customers will have access to movies and other video content from the main mobile entertainment applications, whose subscription fee will be included in the monthly broadband connection rates and no separate charges will be charged, the source added.

Characteristics of the Jio decoder

In addition to delivering content from the main streaming services, the decoder will also allow access to the video call service on televisions. The customer must connect a camera to the STB for the service. The decoder will also provide access to a large number of cable television channels, as the company worked hard to poach on local cable operators (LCOs).
