What is Jio Fiber (FTTH)?
FTTH means fiber to the home that provides internet service to residences, apartment buildings and other businesses. Jio fiber is wireless technology which uses fiber optics to transmit signal replaces conventional copper wires. Thus one can get maximum speed with the same price. Also the fiber speed can be controlled from 259 Kbps to 1000 Mbps, currently Jio provides 100 Mbps.
Jio Fiber can also be used on TV over IP Service i.e MPEG2. So this can make TV works over internet and that is the reason Reliance is also launching Jio DTH with internet facilities. Fiber can also be used for voice and video telephony over Internet IP. So overall, it replaces all the wire work with wireless service.
What is the Pricing of 100 GB FTTH Plan?
Well, this is probably one of the cheapest plan in the whole world with just rs.5 per GB of bandwidth usage. This plan will give 100 GB data transfer by only paying rs.500 monthly. This is a home fiber plan for Jio customers and it will be completely wireless.
Jio Fiber Plan Comparison with BSNL and Airtel
Remember that BSNL and Airtel are the two biggest competitors against reliance Jio Fiber. India has roughly 2 Crore Broadband users in which BSNL owns almost half of them. Also, BSNL is slightly cheaper than Airtel but Airtel has some superiority over speed as Airtel is also going Fiber this year.
Comparison Table Between BSNL, Airtel, Jio
|BSNL||Rs. 3,999||200 GB*||10 Mbps|
|Airtel||Rs. 899||60 GB||16 Mbps|
|Jio||Rs. 500||100 GB||100 Mbps|
- Note (*) Means that BSNL will price first 200 GB data with 10 Mbps thereafter unlimited broadband @ 1 Mbps speed.
So if we compare all the plans then we can clearly see how cheapest and affordable is Jio Fiber. Airtel v-fiber broadband starts from rs.899 and giving limited 60 GB data however BSNL is giving unlimited data with first 200 GB with 10 Mbps and rest with 1 Mbps speed. However the price of BSNL fiber is insanely high.
However i am 100% sure that these companies will change these plans and make them more cheaper when Jio Fiber will launch. You can check all BSNL Broadband plans from this link as well as airtel broadband plans from this link.
