JioFiber launches the Jio WiFi Mesh Router for ₹2,499
The new mesh router will allow Jio users to expand WiFi coverage across their homes or offices.
Reliance Jio has launched the Jio WiFi Mesh Router for its Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) service JioFiber. Priced at ₹2,499, this mesh router is going to help users expand the WiFi coverage across their homes, or offices and make the most of the connection.
According to JioFiber website, the WiFi coverage provided by Jio Home Gateway covers an area of 1,000 sq feet across a single floor. This can be affected by several external factors like Wifi access points, placement of the Home Gateway, other obstructions like walls etc.
The new Jio WiFi Mesh Router will help users cover more ground and expand the WiFi coverage that's offered by the default device. However, the company has not provided any details about the device or its range.
Telecom Talks reports that according to Smart Consumer, a portal developed by GS1 India, a standard body set up by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, the Jio WiFi mesh router is manufactured by Neolync Electronics. Smart Consumer also mentions that the device weighs 174 grams.
Airtel recently unveiled dedicated mesh router plans for Xstream Fiber users. Airtel's Fiber Plus Mesh plan comes for ₹25,000 and is offered alongside Linksys Velop Triband devices. Those subscribing to the Fiber Plus Mesh plan will receive three mesh units with a capacity to cover 3,500 sq feet.
This makes Jio's offer considerably more affordable, but if you are looking to cover a bigger area than what Jio Fiber supports right now with the mesh WiFi router thrown in, the company will allow you to buy additional modules.
