Airtel offers 250 GB free broadband data to counter JioFibre's freebies

The Mukesh Ambani-led company's Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) service had been mentioned in the 2016 Reliance Industries Annual General Meeting, as well as in an earnings call in April this year. "Jio had certainly impacted consumer broadband market for few months", Digisol Systems chief operating officer Arati Naik said, adding that the bearing was not much as the company, being a manufacturer, was able to control output to match demand. Even the broadband plans of Reliance jio has been launched and soon it is expected that it will start its service all over in the month of June 2017.

As per some exclusive brochure accessed by reporters, it was revealed that Jio will roll out "India's first and only 100 per cent fiber video optimised network", which will empower users to access "ultra-high speed internet at fingertips". Pilot services were rolled out in Mumbai.

'The launch of Jio broadband service has been delayed due to the extension of Jio 4G commercial launches until March 31'. "There has been a brief hiatus in market where both Jio's free service and demonetisation played an equal role", Lynn Wang, MD, TP-Link India, said.
