Jio GigaFiber is running a preview offer under which it is offers 1100GB data benefit with speeds up to 100Mbps for first 3 months. Users are required to pay Rs 4500 at the time of the installation as a security deposit for the connection. Jio is expected to launch the broadband plans at a starting price of  Rs 500. The broadband service is already available in several major cities as a free trial run.

Previously, the launch was expected to happen in March but seeing the pace at which the deployment is taking place we feel the launch could be delayed and happen around June or July. Currently, Jio is doing area Ready for Sale (RFS) for its GigaFiber service. The area RFS means that Jio officials in their respective assigned areas are reaching out the management authorities of high rising societies and owners of personal homes to tell them about the Jio GigaFiber service and seek permission for the deployment. If they agree then Jio deploys its executives in that area to sell its service to the residents of that area. The company is first targeting the Multiple Dwelling Unit (MDU) like the high-rising societies and then the Single Dwelling Unit(SDU) such as private homes for the deployment.
