Mukesh Ambani has announced the commercial launch of JioFiber at the annual AGM held in September. However, the rollout of the services doesn’t appear to be as fast as expected, thereby leaving the customers waiting for installation and initiation of services. We do have complete details about the current status and rollout of the Jio Fiber broadband service. Also, some customers are offered the subscription to the JioFiber preview offer. Besides this, Jio is not offering Set-top Box for new JioFiber connections under the preview offer.

Jio Fiber Broadband service: Status and Latest Developments

Jio Fiber services were launched in September, thereby revealing the complete details of commercial plans and prices. As expected, Jio launched the broadband plans of varying data speeds at affordable price brackets. The plans offer ultra-high-speed broadband speeds up to 1Gbps and other benefits such as TV video calls, Home networking, device security, and more. Also, Jio offered additional data benefits, free Bluetooth speakers, and free HD LED TV sets on select prepaid plans. The broadband plans, coupled with additional benefits and freebies, did garner the attention of many data craving consumers.

Many consumers applied for the JioFiber connection by registering on the Jio Website. But to their disappointment, the rollout turns out to be at a slower pace than expected. In general, after successful registration on the Jio website, the customer receives a call from the company’s representative. After that, the Jio personnel comes to the customer’s home and completes the registration process. However, the installation process has slowed down, thereby forcing the customers to wait for longer periods than expected.
