Reliance announces Jio GigaFiber across 1100 Indian cities

Under a monsoon offer, the company said, feature phones can be exchanged for Jio Phones at an additional cost of Rs 501. The company will also announce the price plans for its JioFiber broadband service. The new JioPhone 2, however, features a QWERTY keypad with a 4-way navigation key, similar to older BlackBerry handsets. JioGigaFiber services will also allow TV-to-TV calling within the comfort of homes. 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.

Reliance Industries, which has upended India's telecoms sector with its cheap mobile data plans, launched its fibre broadband system on Thursday in a push to make deeper inroads into the country's wireless and fixed-line internet industry. Both the JioPhone and JioPhone 2 will also support Facebook, WhatsApp, and Youtube.

Talking about the GigaTV, users can give voice commands on a microphone-enabled TV remote to access Jio apps including Jio TV, Jio Cinema, Jio TV Call and much more.

■ The e-commerce venture will leverage 350 million footfalls in Reliance Retail stores, 215 million Reliance Jio subscribers, and the target of 50 million fiber broadband homes and 30 million small merchants.

Reliance Retail, with a footfall of 350 million previous year at its 7,500 stores is the largest, fastest growing and most profitable retail company in India, he said. This is a record that no technology company has been able to achieve anywhere in the world, he added.

To complete a smart home setup, Reliance Jio will also be offering a range of Jio Smart Home Accessories like Door Sensor, Smart Plugs, Smart Speakers, Smart Doorbells, and more. Indian consumers have been struggling for years with slow broadband Internet speeds and high prices, so the arrival of affordable FTTH services can change the game entirely.

After launching JioPhone previous year, Reliance has announced JioPhone 2 at an introductory price of Rs 2,999. Interested users can register their names via Jio.com or MyJio app. Additionally, you can also call any smartphone or tablet connected to any network.
