Reliance Jio’s Next – DTH and Broadband Service

After the super hit offer of free internet from Reliance Jio, Reliance is likely to enter in the DTH and broadband service. Reliance Jio is already shaking the telecom industry and is ready to hit the Direct To Home and broadband service sector. To offer the best service Reliance will use high speed Optical fibres which will probably give up to 1 Gbps internet speed.


The optical fibres are already spread across India. There is no announcement regarding the date when these services will be fully operational in India; but company is already trying the service in some parts of Mumbai.

As far as prices of these services are concerned, we can have faith to get cheapest rate as in case of Reliance Jio internet. However the DTH service will include a Set Top Box along with the  Android smart-box or Apple TV. When having 16 Mbps speed is considered as best in India, Reliance Jio will try to provide much higher speed where you will be able to play high definition videos or games with ease.

Reliance Jio’s DTH service may have JioTV which will have around 360 channels out of which at least 50 channels will be offered in HD.

There is also something called as Jio MediaShare where you will be able to play the TV contents locally on all your devices from Laptops to hard drives with the help of Home Gateway. This Home gateway will be able to offer a better security of home using surveillance with real-time monitoring of cameras,  doorbells and motion sensors.

This upcoming offerings from Reliance will definitely affect the already established DTH and broadband service providers. To survive in the competition, this will surely result in better service and rate cuts from these existing service providers. So anyways customers will get benefited. We’ll just wait n watch, what the deal is!
