Reliance Jio testing voice, video and data bundle plan for JioGigaFiber

Reliance Jio is testing a new Triple Play plan – a service that bundles video, voice and data – on its JioGigaFiber FTTH connections, reports TelecomTalk. The service is currently being tested in a limited manner among employees, and will offer 100GB of high-speed data (capped at 100 Mbps), unlimited voice calling, Jio Home TV subscription and Jio native apps.

Triple Play offers video, voice and data bundled into one set-top box. The GigaFiber connection supports broadband, video, TV, smart home systems and enables calls via an e-SIM.

Reliance Jio will now work on “Area Ready for Sale” rollout, wherein the company will reach out to authorities in societies and private homes for deployment of JioGigaFiber. Jio is reportedly reaching out to both Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs) like apartments and Single Dwelling Units (SDUs) like independent private homes.

Jio GigaFiber: Broadband, smart home, calls

In July last year we reported that Jio’s FTTH efforts were in beta testing in a few thousand homes, although the company had not announced any tariff rates (it still hasn’t). A few months after this announcement, Reliance Industries acquired majority stakes in cable and broadband companies Hathway Broadband and Den Networks. The acquisitions netted it Hathway’s 770,000 broadband customers and Den Networks’ 155 million cable subscribers (as of 2017).

At the announcement of JioGigaFiber during the company’s AGM last year, Reliance revealed that it had clubbed broadband with a suite of smart home products including smart TV apps, a smart speaker, IoT appliances, and automated doors, doorbells, and surveillance cameras. Jio’s suite of apps will include JioTV, JioCinema, JioSmartLiving, JioStore, JioCloud among others. The device will also enable video calls via the set-top box (supposedly working on eSIM technology), and would also support ‘real-time healthcare’.

Reliance Jio had 280 million subscribers as of January, up from 160 million subscribers a year ago. Reliance Jio recorded a standalone net profit of Rs 831 crore for the quarter ended December 2018. It had said that its 4G LTE network coverage of “99% of population” would be completed in the next few months.
