Jio Fiber Launch date on October 18th (Diwali)

Reliance Jio's JioFiber broadband service for homes will likely be launched around Diwali, and the company plans to offer data at rates that could disrupt the home broadband market.

Unlike Reliance Jio cellular service, which trigged mass migration from other network providers, JioFiber will encourage people to subscribe to untapped optic fiber-based broadband service market.

Reliance Jio's Twitter handle had twitted, "The JioFiber Preview Offer has now being launched in select areas of Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Ahmedabad, Jamnagar, Surat and Vadodara".

On the other hand, Airtel has released the myHome promotional plan, which promises a maximum of 250 GB of free data to its broadband users. Similar large increments in data benefits have been effected at every price point in every city with unlimited calling to any network available across all plans. This is likely to raise a price war in the broadband market as the other incumbent broadband service providers are offering nearly half of this data at the double price.

Finally, all the Reliance Jio users are looking forward to the launch of the JioFiber Broadband Offer. 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.

According to several reports, the broadband service is expected to get unveiled in June this year. The router will be offered at a one-time cost of Rs. 4,500 with refundable installation charges.

It would appear that the starting pack will probably begin from 500 INR for which 100GB of data will be advertised. "In May, Reliance Jio's twitter handle had tweeted about the JioFiber preview offer is now being offered on a trial basis in some cities". It seems that the home broadband market must be ready for the competition from Reliance Jio Effect.

Reliance JioFiber Offers 100 GB at Rs 500 by this Diwali: Reliance JioFiber is gearing up to launch in Diwali with huge offers for broadband customers.

Jio home broadband or Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) services will also include home automation - a technology that allows users to control electronic products with smartphones/tablets.

However the free data offer is limited to the NCR region. The 1GB plan has been initially priced at Rs 5,999 per month with a FUP of 1TB.
