Reliance Jio’s broadband service has been in talks since a while now and was highly looked upon considering the fact that it is said to offer a lightning internet speed. If the report is to be believed, then Jio will offer a minimum speed of 100 Mbps for home broadband users and that too at affordable prices as it has been doing up till now.
Reliance Jio has been laying down fibre optic cables in various cities all over India. In September last year, some details came up regarding the service being tested in several residential colones of Chennai. Jio had officially sent invites to residents of various localities to try out their broadband serviced. There were also reports that the company had begun test for the service with 1 GB per second speed in Mumbai and Pune last year.
Along with the broadband service, Reliance Jio is also set to launch its DTH service and smart-Tv boxes.
