After disrupting the Indian telecom market, Jio is preparing its plans to disrupt the broadband sector too. Until now state-owned BSNL, Airtel, Act Fibernet, TATA Communications, and other small players have been controlling the Indian broadband customer. Despite the current competition, business experts believe that there is still a lot of untapped market in the broadband sector.
Trying to take advantage over all the broadband players, Jio is planning to offer 1100 GB at 100Mbps to its broadband users. Once the users hit the 100GB mark, they can avail free data as 40GB data packs with top-ups for 25 times. Currently, the service is being tested in Ahmedabad, Chennai, Jamnagar, Mumbai, New Delhi, and other key cities.
In the above-mentioned cities, Jio if offering broadband services by collecting a deposit of Rs 4,500 form the customers. Jio is planning to launch its broadband services nationwide by the end of the 2nd quarter this year. The monthly charge is yet to be decided, and many believe that it could be around Rs 700 – Rs 800 bracket.
