Remember, Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani had announced during the company’s last AGM that Jio is launching a new project called Jio GigaFiber? One needs to book Jio GigaFiber to get the service, a FTTH or fiber to the home offering, that provides you high speed broadband connectivity at your home, office etc.  The service, he had said then, will be rolled out from 15 August, and the booking will be started from that day. It was announced then that the locality that does the maximum bookings or registrations will be given priority in terms of JioGigafiber connectivity.

How To Book Jio GigaFiber

Starting yesterday, the company has rolled out its booking and registration process for Jio GigFiber. So, how to book Jio GigaFiber for you and your friend and others?

The company offers two methods to register or book GigaFiber broadband – through its website Jio.com and via the MyJio mobile app. Upon clicking the registration, the app as well as the website link will ask you your location. In most of the casses it will automatically capture your location via GPS as your address and prompt you the same. You, however, have the option to override the system-fed location,and can put the address on your own. It then asks you for the type of address – home, office etc. Once this data is entered, the registration process is complete.

Jio also prompts you to invite your friends and others to join the GigaFibber network by registering with it. This is because, as it hass already announced, the locality that gets maximum registration will be given priority in providing the connectivity.

What Is RIL’s Jio GigaFiber Offering?

During the last RIL AGM, Isha Ambani, Mukesh Ambani’s daughter and one of the directors in Jio, said gone are the days of ‘MBPS’, now is the time for ‘GBPS’. What she meant was internet speed will now be measured with Gbps speed or giga bytes per second. So, far we have been used to Mbps or mega bytes per second, which offers much slower data speed than Gbps. The Jio GigaFiber aims to offer even the basis broadband plan in Gbps speed.

Starting 15 August, the services will be rolled out in 1100 cities simultaneously. The price, data plans etc are not yet disclosed. The company said one can book Jio GigaFiber hrough the Jio website or MyJio App. Ambani said, the areas that will get maximum registrations will get priority in terms of service availability.

What the Jio GigaFiber Can Do?

A lot of things, if we go by Mukesh Ambani’s speech at the RIL AGM.

As the GigaFiber is going to be a high speed fixed broadband service, it can put a home or office on a digital fast-track. The current service providers that provide broadband services are either offer too slow data speed or better speed at expensive rates, which is not affordable for masses. This is what hampers the growth of India’s broadband penetration. Jio GigaFiber aims to overcome this barrier with better speed at affordable prices.

Second, once a home gets ultra high speed data connectivity through GigaFiber, Jio aims to convert these houses to smart homes. In a smart home concept, the home appliances, like switches, lights, AC, TV, refrigerators etc can be connected to the home broadband and can be controlled via a smartphone.

According to Jio, if a home is connected to Jio GigaFiber and is enabled as a smart home, they do not require any other DTH or cable TV services. Making telephone calls and video calls are also possible using the smart TV.
