Reliance's much-awaited broadband service, Jio Fiber, has been commercially launched in India.

So, if you are looking to get a Reliance Jio Fiber connection, here's how you can get started.
The registrations for Jio Fiber (earlier known as Jio GigaFiber) started in August last year and the company has already received 1.5 crore requests. Notably, as part of the initial roll-out, Reliance Jio is planning to go big with an aim to reach as many as 2 crore residences and 1.5 crore businesses across 1,600 towns in the county.
