Reliance Jio has been teasing the service, but has not revealed many details of JioFiber broadband yet. So it comes as a surprise when the Reliance Jio customer care team officially revealed the names of the cities in which JioFiber trials are being run.
Reliance Jio customer care team on twitter said the JioFiber Preview Offer is being launched in Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Ahmedabad, Jamnagar, Surat, and Vodadara. It added the company is in the process of rolling out the home broadband service to other cities in the country, but did not specify any names. A Twitter user in September had said the preview offer is available in Pune as well.
Some user in Mumbai had reported in January speeds between 70Mbps and 100Mbps on the 1Gbps connection. In the Pune instance, however, speeds of up to 743.28Mbps were recorded – implying a 1Gbps connection. While the service is said to be free for the first 90 days, users will have to pay a one-time, refundable sum of Rs. 4,000-4,500 for the JioFiber router.
