Reliance Jio has announced new JioFiber plans that start at Rs. 399 and offer up to 150Mbps upload and download speeds and ‘unlimited’ data.
The 4K set-top box in the bundle shall further grant access to subscriptions of 12 OTT services including Netflix, Disney+Hotstar, Prime videos, Zee5, and more with the Rs. 999 and Rs. 1499 rental plans. Of these 12 app subscriptions, one is exclusively available with Rs. 1499 plan and we are guessing this would be Netflix.
The inclusion of these OTT subscriptions in the plans should make the unification of DTH and OTT services under one umbrella (as was promised by JioTV+) a lot more meaningful.
JioTV+ also allows users to access these services without separate logins, and to search content across all different OTT services in one place.
JioFiber New Plan Details
These are all unlimited data plans. The Rs. 399 and Rs. 699 plans offer 30Mbps and 100Mbps speeds, respectively. The Rs. 999 plan offers up to 150Mbps upload and download speeds and access to content from 11 OTT apps. The Rs. 1499 Plan offers 300Mbps speeds and subscriptions to 12 OTT apps and we are guessing the extra app is Netflix.

JioFiber free trial will be available to customers who register from September 1 onwards. Customers who came onboard between August 15 and September 1 can avail of the JioFiber free trial as well.
Existing JioFiber customers will get equivalent benefits as vouchers in My Jio app.

Commenting on this development, Mr. Akash Ambani, Director, Jio, said “JioFiber is already the largest Fiber provider in the country with over a million connected homes, but our vision for India and Indians is much larger.
We want to take Fiber to each and every home and empower every member of the family. After making India the largest and the fastest-growing country in mobile connectivity with Jio, JioFiber will propel India into global broadband leadership, thereby providing broadband to over 1,600 cities and towns. I urge everyone to Join the JioFiber movement to make India the broadband leader of the world.”
