Reliance Chairman Mr. Mukesh Ambani on July 5, 2018, launched its fiber-based broadband service – JioGigaFiber in India. Registration started from 15th August 2018 in more than 1100 cities.
What is JioGigaFiber?
Jio GigaFiber is basically a broadband service by Jio provided using a flexible Fiber Cable. When data has to travel a long distance, fiber optic cables experience less signal loss than copper cabling.
Currently, Jio is offering its “JioGigaFiber preview offer” which gives speed up to 100Mbps for 3 months with 100GB monthly data and no Installation Charges. There is a Refundable Security Deposit of Rs 4,500 taken initially for the Jio Router (ONT device) and can be paid easily through Debit card, Credit Card, Jio Money or Pay TM.

Jio Plans for future: “Smart Home Accessories Suite”
It will include TV camera, plugs, doorbells, Wi-Fi extender, and more. The accessories can be used to control the entire home via the MyJio application. Apart from the major connected devices, Jio is set to bring the smoke sensor, water leak sensor, siren, gas leak sensor, panic button, door sensor, and smart video doorbells. These have been designed to let users control and monitor their homes remotely using their smartphones. The prime purpose of the new launch is to expand the presence of connected homes in India.
The new devices will enable Jio users to control and monitor “every aspect” of their homes, including temperature, lighting, electrical appliances, gas and water leakage, motion detection, and opening and closing of doors and windows. The devices will also enable remotely caring for babies and the elderly, the company said at the meeting.
Jio would be deploying its services first to those areas from where most requests will come. Jio is not charging anything for registration for Jio Giga Fiber Preview Offer. I am providing you with easy steps to register below:
Easy Steps to register:
a) Open the website either on desktop, laptop or mobile “https://www.jio.com/“. (Users using Jio carrier can get the option in the home page of MYJIO App).
b) Enter your Address where you want Jio Fibre to be installed.
c) Enter your basic details like Name, Mobile No. & Email Address & accept Terms.
d) Click Generate OTP. A code will be sent to the mobile number entered in step c.
e) Click Verify OTP & Proceed in the End.
Its was really simple to register to let Jio understand from which area demand is high. The high the number of registrations from a particular area, faster the process of deployment may happen in that area.
Jio Giga Fiber has big plans to sustain in the heavy competition and this makes it invest heavily in the broadband services including Gio TV Services where the focus is to provide Ultra HD Entertainment on TV, video conferencing & smart home solutions.
