JioGigaFiber: Reliance Jio looks to disrupt India’s telecom landscape, again

Jio Monsoon offer Here's how you can get new Jio Phone 2 for Rs 500

JioPhone 2 is priced at Rs. 2,999 and will be available from August 15.

The Jio Smart Home solution includes smart cameras, smart plugs, IR blasters, Smoke sensors, gas leak sensors, audio dongle, video dongle, Wifi extender, TV cameras, and much more.

After revolutionising the telecom sector, Reliance Jio has now come up with Jio GigaFiber which was earlier known as Jio Fiber.

With the launch of Jio back in 2016, business tycoon Mukesh Ambani reshaped the telecom business in India by disrupting the tariff charges. In essence, you can exchange your old JioPhone for a new one for just Rs 501. Also, voice usage on the network has increased from 250 crore minutes to 530 crore minutes per day. The company aims to bring India among the top five global fixed line broadband players, and it has invested over ₹250,000 crores ($36 billion) for creating better mobile and broadband connectivity.

"The term loan facility will be used to finance goods and services procured primarily from Samsung and Ace Technologies", Jio said.

Reliance past year launched the JioPhone, which allowed digital payments and was effectively free: buyers could get a device for a refundable fee of 1,500 rupees.

RIL announced the launch of Ji GigaFiber - the company's FTTH home broadband service - alongside the JioPhone 2 announcement.

The service will be called "Jio GigaFiber Service".

Present Jio phone users will get free voice calls and WhatsApp, Facebook and YouTube would now be available on Jio phones, the chairman said.

Jio now has 215 million subscribers and is on track to cover 99 percent of the country, Ambani said. The device, named JioPhone2, will also be available from August 15. This is a record that no technology company has been able to achieve anywhere in the world, he added.

While the series of services and gadgets launched by Ambani's in their 41st AGM have left most of us excited, it sure seems like an alarming situation for Amazon boss Jeff Bezos, who enjoys a large market share in India.

The company will also launch Jio Smart Home Accessories like sensors to detect and regulate water leak, temperature, lighting and electrical appliances. The company said it expects tens of millions of customers and retailers to be a part of this platform through Jio apps as well as Reliance's own retail ecosystem. 1,100 cities will offer most advanced fibre-based broadband connectivity solutions. Dubbed as JioGigaFiber, users can subscribe to the service starting from August 15. It features the Jio GigaTV calling feature too, which will let you call TV connected to Jio GigaFiber or smartphone connected to any network.
