Reliance Jio Giga Fiber plans: How to apply, installation charges, etc
Days after Mukesh Ambani announced the launch of Jio Fiber or Jio GigaFiber broadband service from September 5, Reliance Jio has released details of its registration process. Bundled with a landline phone connection and TV set-top box, Jio Fiber plans will begin from ₹700 per month and go up to ₹10,000 for premium customers.
Jio has also announced a Jio Welcome Offer, under which all those who buy its annual plans will get an HD or 4K LED TV and a 4K set-top box for free. Landline connection will also be for free. Jio has also kept installation charges free during the initial rollout period.
How to apply for Jio Fiber:
So far, users could only apply for a Jio Fiber preview offer under which the broadband connection, with a speed ranging in between 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps, came for free and users were asked only to pay for a refundable security deposit of ₹2,500 for the router (ONT device).
Now as Jio Fiber paces towards a commercial launch, the registration process has begun. You can apply for a Jio Fiber connection at its website here in a simple three-step process. In the first page, mention the address where you want to get a Jio Fiber connection after which you will be asked to give your name, mobile number and email id. You will then be asked to submit an OTP sent to your phone. The registration process, which is more like an expression of interest, is now complete. You will get a message stating that once the feasibility is confirmed you will receive a call from Jio's sales representative for further process.
You will need any of the two documents to get the connection: Aadhaar card or any other original valid proof of identification and proof of address like voter id card, PAN card, passport, driving licence, etc.
Installation of Jio Fiber connection:
If your registration process is complete and the Jio Fiber service is available in your area, an installation engineer will soon visit your house to install the broadband system. Activation is within two hours.
Reliance Jio has announced on its website that during the initial rollout phase, installation charges will be free.
"As part of our initial roll out we are offering complimentary JioFiber installation and connection to all our customers. Other than the refundable security deposit, as of now there are no additional installation charges," Jio said.
Alongwith the Jio Fiber connection, you will also get a free landline for making voice calls.
