In the field of Indian telecom, a commercial venture Reliance Jio launched the year before launching its telecom service. The reason was cheap internet data and free calls. At the time of Reliance Jio’s launch, it was a tough challenge to other telecom companies like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea. These telecom companies were forced to cheaper their call rates and data. Prior to the arrival of Reliance Jio, users used to get 1 GB data for the whole month for 250 rupees, which now started to meet 40 GB data free calling for 250 rupees. Not only this, Reliance Jio has done a great job in the field of Indian telecom and mobile internet.
Jio 4G has changed the Industry
According to the industry report, mobile internet data consumption in 2017 increased manifold compared to 2016. Many leading telecom companies have to be bankrupt or have merged with big companies. Due to Reliance Jio, two major telecom companies Idea Cellular and Vodafone India have come together. At the same time, the public sector company Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has to take many cheap plans for users. Reliance Jio added 300 million or more 30 million users in just two years. At the same time, the user base of Airtel and Vodafone has consistently decreased. The effect was that these companies closed their free incoming or lifetime incoming plans and had to take down the minimum recharge plans.
How much will change the industry from JioGigaFiber
Talking about JioGigaFiber, this fiber-to-the-broadband (FTTH) broadband service is currently being launched in some cities as a trial. This includes Noida-Ghaziabad of Delhi-NCR besides Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. JioGigaFiber is planning to start the company together in 1,100 cities of the country. Registration for this super fast internet service has started from August 15, 2018. In this fiber-to-the-home service, users will get the benefit of Internet service with a speed of 100 Mbps. Currently, JioGigaFiber will be challenged by private companies like Airtel V-Fiber and ACT Fibernet in the market as well as Vodafone Broadband and public sector company BSNL Bharat Fiber. In these companies, fiber-to-the-home service users are getting the benefit of high speed broadband service at the rate of Rs 799. In addition, Excitel Fiber to the Home Broadband service is going to start.
Under the preview offer of JioGigaFiber, users are given the benefit of up to 100GB of free internet data. If you talk about JioGigaFiber potential plans then these plans can start from Rs 500 a month. In this, users will get the benefit of data from the speed of 50Mbps. If JioGigaFiber plans are cheap like Jio 4G plans, then other fiber-to-the-home broadband service providers will definitely get a tough challenge. Along with this, users will also get the benefits of a smart home like Jio Giga TV and IPTV. Will, this year only after JioGigaFiber service is started commercially, it will come to know that JioGigaFiber also works like Jio 4G.
