Reliance Jio on Tuesday, announced the launch of JioAirFiber services, its integrated end-to-end solution for home entertainment, smart home services and high-speed broadband, across 8 metro cities.
The announcement comes weeks after Bharti Airtel's introduction of India's inaugural wireless home. Jio has a track record of disrupting markets to offer consumers affordable options, as demonstrated in the telecom industry.
With AirFibre, Ambani sets his sight on disrupting India's broadband market.
The JioAirFiber plans will start from Rs 599, while the JioAirFiber Max will be priced upwards of Rs 1499.
Jio's optical fiber infrastructure spans over 1.5 million kilometres across India. Jio’s extensive optical-fiber presence puts Jio in close proximity to over 200 million premises.
Yet, providing physical last-mile connectivity often ends up taking a lot of time in most parts of our country. This leaves millions of potential customers without home broadband, due to the complexities and delays involved in extending optical-fiber to their premises, Jio said in a statement.
«This is where JioAirFiber comes in, to accelerate connectivity in premises,» it added.
Speaking at the launch of JioAirFiber, Akash Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, said, “Our extensive fiber-to-the-home service JioFiber, already serves over 10 million customers, with hundreds of thousands more getting connected each month.
But there are still millions of homes and small businesses to be connected at a rapid pace.
With JioAirFiber, we are expanding our addressable market to rapidly cover every home in our country with similar quality of service. JioAirFiber will enable millions of homes with world-class digital entertainment, smart home
