Reliance Jio in its 41st Annual General Meeting (AGM) has announced the launch of Jio GigaFiber. This is nothing but Reliance Jio’s FTTH home broadband solution. Though the company has been testing it on a trial basis, Mr Mukesh Ambani has officially launched the service.
The JioGigaFiber is meant to provide the most advanced fibre-based broadband services enabling a faster internet experience. The ultra-fast 1Gbps internet speed will now be a reality. Addressing the gathering, Isha Ambani quoted, “Gone are the days of Mbps, now it will be about Gbps.
Jio GigaFiber - An All-in-One Solution:
In the Jio GigaFiber setup process, the user will get access to a router and GigaFiber Set Top Box (STB) that will offer a 4K resolution on its channels. Apart from this, the user can place calls to Giga TV devices or mobile users across India. It provides a virtual reality experience where one can control switches in the house from outside as well. The Jio GigaFiber is an all-in-one solution for landline, broadband, cable TV, home surveillance, and home automation.
The Jio Giga TV Set-top Box promises 600 plus movie channels and millions of songs as per the customer demand. The STB will enable multi-party video conferencing from your living room. Undoubtedly, this will first disrupt the home broadband segment and then the cable TV service providers.
In short, the launch of Jio GigaFiber can trigger the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Starting from ultra high-definition entertainment to virtual reality experience, Jio GigaFiber will revolutionize Indian Homes and enhance the competency making India future-ready.
