After disrupting the telecom industry and setting its eyes on the POS market, Jio is now ready to shake the home broadband market along with DTH services with the impending roll-out of its JioFiber service. Apart from offering high data speeds at Jio prices (read as rock-bottom prices), Jio is also bundling a free 4K TV and a 4K TV set-top box for users who opt for the Jio-Forever plans.
Just a week before the official roll-out of the JioFiber service, Jio’s 4K set-top has been leaked. A report by DreamDTH shows live images of the alleged 4K set-top box that JioFiber subscribers will get when they sign up for the Jio-Forever plans. The Jio-Forever plans are annual plans, but we don’t have information on the pricing just yet. All we know for now is that the base price of this service will be INR 700 and will go all the way up to INR 10,000 for speeds of up to 1GBPS.
The report also claims that the set-top box will have the following ports: power socket, a USB-2, a USB-3, an Ethernet RJ45, and an HDMI port. The images leaked seem to corroborate this piece of information. The 4K set-top box will not only offer free DTH services but will also club free access to premium OTT platforms. If this wasn’t enough, you’ll be surprised to know that this box can also be used for gaming, Virtual Reality, and Mixed Reality. It’ll support all existing game controllers in the market.
All JioFiber services also come with a complimentary landline connection that will be able to make free calls to all mobile and landline connections in the country. Additionally, JioFiber customers will also be able to make unlimited calls to the US and Canada for just INR 500 a month.
