As we all know, Reliance Jio has shaken the whole telecom industry and all telecom players are trying to cope with the situation by launching new tariff plans every single day. After successfully triggering tariff war for mobile internet, Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio might be launching the FTTH data services. FTTH (Fibre-To-The-Home) data services might be coming by June this year. As per reports, the FTTH data services will be having a minimum speed of 100 Mbps.
The 100 Mbps data services have given a strong challenge to the other telecom companies as no telecom has launched such a data plan in the market till date. However, the cost of the FTTH services is still not clear. Reliance Jio will also be offering other opt-in services along with the FTTH services.
FTTH is a broadband network architecture using optical fiber to provide all or part of the local loop used for last mile telecommunications.
The service is called Jio Fiber and it will be rolled out as a Preview in the coming weeks. According to the reports, Jio has already started trials in various cities and is ready for commercial launch. Mumbai will be the first city to get the preview of fiber services.
Jio Fiber broadband plans will start from 100 Mbps speed. Reliance Jio’s upcoming FTTH service is not just about speed and tariff, it has several other features to offer.
After launching the smartphone in the country, it is also expected that the Jio will launch its 4G VoLTE feature phones and it may cost between Rs. 1,000 and Rs. 2,000. The feature phones are expected to have buttons like MyJio, JioMusic JioTV, and JioCinema.
It was also reported earlier the company is planning to launch its Direct to Home services. according to sources Jio will be giving 300 + channels which will have 50 + HD channels and this will cost around Rs 150 to Rs 250. However, there is no official announcement by the company about its launching.
Reports suggest that it will have a smart calling feature that will virtually connect the cell phones to landline. That means if a person receives a call on the landlines it can be received on cell phone.
There is a speculation that the company is working on Jio laptop with 4G SIM card slot. Although there is no official announcement by the company on the same.
This is the second time when Mukesh Ambani is experimenting in the telecom industry after successfully launching Jio that disrupted the whole telecommunication market with its aggressive tariff plans. It has given tough competition to incumbent players like telecom major Airtel, Vodafone and Idea.
