Friends, we all remember those days when we have seen long queues outside Jio Stores to get the Jio Connection free for first 3 months and then extended for another 3 months. We all have been waiting for Jio GigaFiber connection to come to our city from the past 2 years.
It has finally started to roll out. The plans are finally declared by Jio. Will Jio again be able to capture the market and become the leader in providing internet services? let’s find out:
Let’s check out the plans now:
Monthly Cost: 699 Rs + 18%GST = 825 Rs / Month
a) Speed: 100 Mbps
b) 100 GB + 50 GB (First Six Months) = 150 Gb for First Six Months and later 100 Gb per month.
c) Three Months of Unlimited Jio Cinema and Music listening via Jio Saavn App.
Note: You will not get the cable services (watching TV) with this plan. You need the regular cable connection as you have right now to watch Television.
Jio has tied up with various cable providers like Hathway and Den and with the help of these cable providers Television can be watched. As we were assuming, watching channels on Tv would be free, but it’s not like that. Cable cost will be extra.
Monthly Cost: 849 + 18%GST = 1002 Rs/ Month
a) Speed: 100 Mbps
b) Data: 200 GB + 200 Gb (Extra for first 6 month) = 400 GB for first 6 months and later only 200 GB Data per month.
c) Three Months of OTT Apps.
3) Gold (for heavy internet users):
Monthly Cost: 1299 + 18% GST = 1533 Rs/ month
a) Speed: 250 Mbps
b) Data: 500GB + 250 GB (Extra for first 6 month) = 750 GB for first 6 months and later only 500 GB Data per month.
c) Annual Subscription of OTT Apps.
Rest other plans are for very heavy users. Kindly check above list.
Jio Giga Fiber Setup:
a) 4K Setup box – It’s like Google Chromecast or Amazon Fire Stick which has apps inbuilt and can convert the regular tv to a Smart Tv. So Jio 4K Setup Box will also be similar to it. It will have Android Apps installed like Jio TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Zee 5, etc. and will be consuming Data from your chosen plan.
b) Jio Home Gateway – It will be the converter from fiber to Lan / Wi-Fy. The white color gateway is far better than the black one. The black one has 2.4 GHz Wi-fi however white one has both 2.4 and 5 GHz and an extra USB Port. The black gateway has a fiber port under the body.
Let’s see how Gateway and 4K Setup Box looks like when connected:
