All about Jio GigaFiber's free 90-day preview plan
Registrations for the Jio GigaFiber broadband service began on August 15, and now, the company has launched a 90-day free preview offer for interested customers.
Interestingly, after customers express their interest in a Jio GigaFiber connection via the Jio website or the MyJio app, the company will launch the preview service in regions which have the most demand.
For more details, read on.
Caveats pertaining to availability of the service
First, it's important to note that even if you register for Jio GigaFiber, you might not get a connection just yet, owing to Reliance's demand-based roll-out policy.
That said, registrations can be made on Jio's website or on the MyJio app for free.
Then, as and when your locality gets the service, Jio will provide you with its fixed-line fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband service.
The preview is free, except for a refundable deposit
The best part about Jio GigaFiber's three-month-long preview is that it's absolutely free.
However, customers will have to pay a refundable security deposit of Rs. 4,500 for the broadband router. Since Jio's router, dubbed GigaHub Home Gateway, is an optical line terminal (OLT) device, your regular broadband router is unlikely to be compatible with Jio GigaFiber's connection.
