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.

Fees

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.

Speed

Jio says users will get unparalleled download speeds

If Jio is to be believed, downloads will happen in mere "milli-seconds" owing to GigaFiber's 100Mbps speed. Notably, Jio is offering 100GB high-speed data per month for the preview.

Jio says that unlike traditional cables that see speeds get reduced owing to patches in between, its fiber cable will go directly to your home, thereby enabling extremely high speeds.
