Jio Fiber: Jio’s unexpected action to reduce broadband speed

Jio Fiber will reduce broadband speed if users meet data-cap.

Reliance Jio has never failed to revise its terms and conditions with a fine print of detailed new plans that would satisfy the need of customers.

Reliance Jio offers four plans — starts at Rs. 399 and marketed up to Rs. 1499 for “truly unlimited plans” with 30 Mbps and 300 Mbps, respectively.  Jio Fiber also comes along with an unlimited calling facility. The top-two highest package, including Rs. 999 and Rs. 1499 is provided with up to 12 OTT apps worth Rs. 1500 with a free subscription for a year.

Begun on August 12, Jio Fiber saw its retail rollout on September 5. The service, which has the potential to remodel the broadband aspect in India, offers a TV set, voice calls for a lifetime from a landline, 100 megabits (Mbps) to 1 GBPS broadband speed at a subscription rate of Rs 700 a month.

Truly unlimited internet plans

According to a recent report, Jio Fiber users, upon reaching the commercial use policy of 3.3 Terabytes (3,300 GB), the new unlimited plan will be switched to 1 Mbps speed. Reliance Jio brought new broadband plans for unlimited Internet policy begins at Rs. 399 a month. The new Jio Fiber plans are priced at Rs. 399, Rs. 699, Rs. 999, Rs. 1,499, Rs. 2,499, Rs. 3,499, and Rs. 8,499. The new plans were initially brought to the market to offer unlimited Internet plans at a low cost to access all users. But, presently, after the announcement Jio Fiber limit the Internet speed once the user crosses the usage of 3,300 GB or 3.3 TB.

Reliance Jio has released its terms and condition, users upon reaching the allotted quota, the plan will be restricted to 1 Mbps. Though operators, including Tata Sky Broadband, provide up to 3 Mbps speeds to users upon reaching their Fair Usage Policy (FUP), the reported speed limit is similar to what’s being offered by Airtel, reports Telecom Talk.

Jio Fiber disconnects the service after 90 days of no recharge

People would experience minor differences while using Jio Fiber. Jio would provide ‘high-range’ customer premise equipment (CPE) only to the users who spend Rs. 3,500 INR as security collateral while the subscribers would get ‘mid-range’ CPE if users pay Rs. 1,500 INR as a security deposit.

Reliance Jio has remarked in the terms and conditions that it “lease the right to offer the plan benefits in a curtailed manner” in case of users who’re on the grace period of up to 30 more days. Besides, the Reliance company has the complete right to disconnect the services if a user doesn’t recharge their account at the end of 90 days from the date of the last recharge.

Jio Fiber customers would get a chance to receive benefits in the form of a redeemable coupon, only who registered for Jio Fiber Broadband services between August 15 to 31.
