All set for the Indian GigaFiber revolution?

Reading Time: 2 minutesReliance Industries (RIL) is all set to revolutionise Indian internet usage from 5th of September, with its ambitious launch of Jio GigaFiber.
Priced at less than 1/10th the global rates (ranging Rs. 700 to Rs. 10,000 a month), the new service is set to capture markets across various economic segments. To strengthen their launch plan and prioritise reach in high interest areas, RIL collected 15 million registration of interest from over 20 million residences, spreading over 1,600 towns across India.
The RIL Chairman noted that the Jio GigaFiber subscribers would get broadband speeds of up to 1 GBPS, along with a landline phone connection, at no additional cost. It also provides a digital set-top-box to the consumers. “We have designed our Jio set-top-box to accept the broadcast cable TV signals from our LCO partners. So that with every JIO Fiber home all our LCO partners will continue to have a steady stream of revenue for their broadcast TV business. We look forward to extending this partnership to all LCOs across the country,” he added. 
He further announced that the Jio GigaFiber customers who opt for annual plans — “Jio-Forever plans”, will get an HD (High Definition) or 4K LED television and a 4K set-top-box for free.
Still not convinced? Here’s more; for small and medium businesses Jio GigaFiber enables a combination of fixed-line connectivity and cloud applications and in terms of large enterprises Jio GigaFiber and Jio’s cloud solutions level the playing field for Indian enterprises enabling them to accelerate their digital transformation and compete globally using the very same technologies that are used by global majors.
Ambani in his speech also said that customers should pay for only one service, either voice or data. “With this, I am pleased to announce that voice calls from home (landline) to any Indian operator – mobile or fixed – will be absolutely free forever. “The company also announced Jio GigaFIber plans will come bundled with subscriptions to most leading premium OTT applications.
To add a cherry on top of the cherry, RIL will also introduce a disruptive movie watching new movies. Premium JioFiber customers will be able to watch movies in their living rooms on the very day of release. Termed as Jio first-day-first-show, this service is set to be rolled out in the middle of 2020.
