JioFiber broadband to offer 100GB data at Rs 500, launch by Diwali

After launching Jio 4G Services last year Now Jio is working on its home broadband services which is expected to launch around Diwali. Jio has started JioFiber trials in some parts of India.
The base pack from JioFiber, the company’s home broadband operations, is likely to be 100 GB of data for Rs 500. Rivals currently offer about half that data at double the price.

Based on customer base, home broadband is a small market — the country has less than 20 million wireline broadband users, with state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam accounting for more than half of it, compared with 200 million users for wireless broadband. But the average user pays much more for fixed-line broadband. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, for instance, Bharti Airtel’s average revenue per user in the home broadband segment was Rs 1,064 against Rs 162 in the mobile data business.

Under the JioFiber Preview, users will get 100 Mbps speeds with a FUP of 100 GB per month. Users will get this for 3 months for free. Users who wish to get the JioFiber Preview will have to pay a refundable security deposit of Rs. 4,500. This is security deposit for the Modem.

From June, Jio plans to expand its free trial offer beyond the few cities where it is currently available, the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. This will culminate with the commercial launch in September or October, this person added.
