Jio Fiber 1Gbps: What consumers get
1Gbps data speeds are best suited for situations like zero lag 4K streaming and gaming. While this is possible even with Jio Fiber's basic plan priced at ₹699, 1Gbps will come handy when multiple devices are connected. If there are multiple devices including TVs, smartphones and PCs connected to Jio Wi-Fi, consuming high quality content at the same time will be uninterrupted with 1Gbps.
Jio Fiber's 1Gbps data speeds will also be applicable to enterprises where multiple workstations are connected. Consumers whose content consumption isn't this high can opt for lower priced plans.
