Reliance Jio GigaFiber Connection Can Now Be Availed for Rs 2,500, But There is a Catch


Highlights


  • The new Rs 2,500 connection of GigaFiber gets a slightly underpowered router to the subscribers


  • The subscribers of this Rs 2,500 connection also experience speeds of up to 50 Mbps




The Mukesh led Ambani telecom operators is holding off the launch of the Reliance Jio GigaFiber service in India. However, that does not mean that the service isn’t in a trial run in metro cities with a preview offer. Reliance Jio has been offering the Reliance Jio GigaFiber for quite some time now in the metros, but, the telco is not doing it entirely for free, and there has been a fee associated with it. The subscribers of Reliance Jio GigaFiber would have to pay Rs 4,500 for the connection as a security deposit which would get them, the connection and the router and free 100GB data per month at 100 Mbps along with 1000GB data add-on bonus packs. With this being said, there might be another wave among the customers with a new price tag.



Reliance Jio GigaFiber Standard Pricing


Now it is very well known that anyone who wants to get a Reliance Jio GigaFiber connection will have to shell out Rs 4,500 upfront to get their hands on the GigaFiber router and thus the connection. However, there is a slight chance that in the past few days, Reliance Jio might have introduced a slightly discounted pricing option for customers who want to try out Reliance Jio GigaFiber. But, like it is the case every time, the Reliance Jio GigaFiber connection has a catch of its own.


Reliance Jio GigaFiber Discounted Pricing


According to a few customers in the testing regions of Reliance Jio GigaFiber, it has been heard that the telco is offering the GigaFiber subscription for Rs 2,500 instead of the usual Rs 4,500. That is a drop of Rs 2,000 from the original cost thus signalling a massive drop for the customers. However, for the subscribers, it is going to mean that the Reliance Jio GigaFiber connection just got very cheap. This is going to reduce the bar for the subscribers to get a new GigaFiber connection and it could also be a step by Reliance Jio to increase the reach of its Preview offer.


Reliance Jio GigaFiber Rs 2,500 vs Rs 4,500 Connection


Since we said that the lower price tag also brings some ifs and buts into the connection, users who subscribe to the service by paying Rs 2,500 should note that they would get a lesser speed of up to 50 Mbps instead of 100 Mbps in their connection. The router which is provided to them will also support single band channel establishing a connection at 2.4GHz, instead of the dual-band router which it usually provides. Other perks of the GigaFiber service like the voice services and the JioTV is also available for the subscribers of this Rs 2,500 option of GigaFiber.


These are some of the differences between the standard Rs 4,500 and the Rs 2,500 connection of Reliance Jio GigaFiber. This might very well be a move by the telco to increase the reach of its service, and it could also be the case that the telco is slowly starting to expand its portfolio with two router options for the prospective customers.
