Last month, Reliance Jio had announced that it will commercially roll out the JioFiber home broadband service across India starting September 5th 2019. Just as promised, albeit a little late in the day, the company has disclosed all the details about the Jio Fiber plans including the JioFiber Welcome Offer. Let’s take a look.
Reliance JioFiber Plans
The base plan (Bronze plan) on JioFiber starts at Rs 699 where users will get unlimited data speeds up to 100 Mbps with a FUP of 150GB. Post this, the speeds will reduce to 1 Mbps. The next tier is the Silver plan which also comes with 100 Mbps speed. At Rs 849 per month, you will get 400GB of high-speed bandwidth. The Gold plan costs Rs 1,299 a month and comes with up to 250 Mbps speed and 750GB of FUP The Rs 2,499 Diamond plan will give up to 500Mbps of home broadband speed and 1500GB of FUP. The Platinum plan will cost Rs 3,999 and will get you speeds of up to 1Gbps and 2500GB of FUP. And finally, the highest Rs 8,499 per month Titanium plan will again provide speeds up to 1 Gbps and 5000GB of FUP.
There is a one-time service charge of Rs 2,500 which includes Rs 1,000 refundable deposit. There are both Monthly plans and Long-term plans available. Long term plans include paying for 3, 6 or 12 months in advance and getting better value over monthly plans. Interestingly, Jio has tied up with some banks to provide attractive EMI schemes on annual plans!
A lot of people were hoping that JioFiber will come without FUp limits, but that doesn’t seem practical yet.

Jio Fiber Plans
From what we hear, the JioFiber roll out is still going on and it would take a while to be available all across the country. While it is true that the service is being rolled out in 1600 towns across India, the last mile connectivity will still take time to reach every nook and corner of the country.
