Reliance Jio has announced the launch of Jio AirFiber services, its integrated end-to-end solution for home entertainment, smart home services and high-speed broadband, across eight metro cities, namely Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.
Currently, Jio’s optical fibre infrastructure spans over 1.5 million km across India. Jio’s extensive optical-fibre presence puts it in proximity to over 200 million premises. Yet, providing physical last-mile connectivity often ends up taking a lot of time in most parts of our country. This leaves millions of potential customers without home broadband, due to the complexities and delays involved in extending optical-fibre to their premises. This is where Jio AirFiber comes in, to accelerate connectivity in premises.
Commenting on the launch, Akash Ambani, chairman, Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, said, “Our extensive fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) service JioFiber, already serves over 10 million customers, with hundreds of thousands more getting connected each month. But there are still millions of homes and small businesses to be connected at a rapid pace. With Jio AirFiber, we are expanding our addressable market to rapidly cover every home in our country with similar quality of service. Jio AirFiber will enable millions of homes with world-class digital entertainment, smart home services and broadband, through its solutions across education, health, surveillance, and smart home.”
Jio AirFiber will provide the best-in-class value proposition and plans as JioFiber. It will enable digital entertainment and broadband services like indoor Wi-Fi service, as well as smart home services such as cloud PC for education and work-from-home, security and surveillance solutions, healthcare, education, smart home internet of things (IoT), gaming and home networking. Additionally, Jio offers home devices like Wi-Fi router, 4K smart set top box and voice-active remote at no additional cost.
