The Reliance Jio Fiber aims to bring down the competition by offering broadband services at a 35-45 percent lower rates. It is offering a minimum internet speed of 100 Mbps for Rs 699.
Almost three years ago, Reliance Jio re-entered the telecom space with 4G mobile services. The company managed to get millions of subscribers with offers like free voice calling and data. This led to intense competition in the market. Mobile users benefitted from this disruption and aggressive pricing from rivals.
Similar results can be expected in the fixed-line broadband market. However, instead of a drop in prices, we are likely to see increased speeds in different price segments. Currently, the average broadband speed in India is 25 Mbps.
Jio Fiber is starting with from 100 Mbps and goes all the way up to 1 Gbps. It is India’s first 100 percent all-fiber broadband service. With over 1.5 crore registrations, the company is eyeing 3.5 crore subscribers.
As of now, BSNL has 9.05 million customers in the fixed-line broadband service segment. While the Bharti Airtel has 2.4 million customers, the Atria Convergence Technologies serves 1.45 million users. The Hathway Cable & Datacom (Reliance Jio’s subsidiary) and MTNL have 0.84 million and 0.74 million customers, respectively.
We will have to wait and see how many customers the Reliance Jio Fiber will manage to attract. The new broadband service has been launched across 1,600 cities.
With the basic Rs 699 plan, you will get three-month complimentary access Jio Cinema and Jio Saavn app. Whereas the Rs 849 plan will get you three-month access to video entertainment apps. HIgher plans include an annual subscription of leading OTT video entertainment apps.
Under the preview offer, users will get the JioFiber services free for two months. For long-term plans (3, 6 and 12 months) Jio will provide attractive EMI schemes through bank tie-ups. You will only have to pay monthly EMI.
