New Delhi : Reliance Industries Limited announces that Jio GigaFiber FTTH broadband service will be launched on August 15. It will connect 1,100 cities of India as part of the public rollout of the service, which has been in testing for the past couple of years. The Jio GigaFiber service will bring high speed Internet via a FTTH network with last-mile connectivity, with speeds up to 1Gbps. For TVs, there will be a GigaTV Set-Top Box, which will provide users with "600 TV channels, thousands of movies, millions of songs" and other content in 4K resolution.
Television sets with GigaTV Set-Top Box will be able to take voice commands from users with the help of a Jio TV Remote, and make calls to any TV, phone or tablet on the broadband network. There will also be home security and automation features in partnership with Byju. The Jio GigaFiber-based smart home capabilities will be installed in homes in less than an hour.
