Reliance Jio, in its Annual General Meeting announced the Jio GigaFiber services to provide high speed internet along with a host of other services like GigaTV and some IoT devices like a smart speaker to go along with it. Today, the services are open for registration and if you’re interested to avail the JioFiber broadband, you can now do so, but how fast you’ll receive the connection depends on the demand in your city.
What this effectively means is more the number of registrations from your location, better are the chances of expecting a rollout in your locality soon. The GigaFiber internet service is said to provide speeds of up to 1GBPS and will eventually be launched in over 1,100 cities in the country.
