JioGigaFiber: Key details
Reliance JioGigaFiber is touted as the "largest greenfield fixed-line broadband rollout" in the world. The operator is promising maximum data speeds up to 1Gbps - peak speed only offered by very few service providers like ACT Fibernet and Spectra, erstwhile known as Spectranet. JioGigaFiber, however, will leverage its wider network in India as Jio plans to roll out the services in over 1,000 cities.

"Starting this Independence Day, August 15th you can start registering your interest for JioGigaFiber through both MyJio and Jio.com. We will prioritise our JioGigaFiber rollout to those localities from where we receive the highest number of registrations. JIOGIGAFIBER will be the largest greenfield fixed-line broadband rollout anywhere in the world, with rollout happening in 1,100 cities of India simultaneously," said Mukesh Ambani at the company's annual general meeting last month.

"At Jio, we are determined to take India to be among the top-5 in broadband connectivity, both for mobility as well as fiber based wireline connectivity. We have built future proof networks and will continue to deliver the most advanced technologies to our customers for decades to come," he added.

The game changer?
The broadband space has remained largely ignored as the telecom operators have mainly focused on the mobile platform. After Jio's entry into the segment, there's been a new-found interest.

"Broadband in India is a space still wide open, ripe for disruption. No operator has really done anything serious with it: the big telcos like Airtel focused on mobile, the pure broadband players have remained regional, or niche. No aggressive broadband plays by operator," senior industry analyst Prashanto Rai.

"...Jio will disrupt more than the broadband space, which was relatively tiny: it will disrupt entertainment, bundling TV and other video content. It may not be able to bundle zero-rated video because of TRAI Net Neutrality restrictions, but even without that a TV-broadband-landline bundle will be disruptive," he added.
