Reliance Jio has launched its latest super internet service, the Jio AirFiber. The new internet service uses 5G to deliver optical-fiber like speeds, without the requirement for physical wiring. What’s even better is that Jio AirFiber has some awesome plans for all budgets
Reliance Jio has officially launched its new wireless internet service, JioAirFiber, which aims to meet the connectivity needs of home entertainment, smart home services, and high-speed broadband users.
The objective is to provide high-speed internet access across India. During the 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM), Jio introduced JioAirFiber, emphasizing that its extensive optical fiber infrastructure covers more than 1.5 million kilometres throughout India.
With this vast optical-fiber network, Jio can potentially reach over 200 million locations. However, despite this broad coverage, the company faces the challenge of establishing physical last-mile connectivity, which often leads to significant delays in various parts of the country. Consequently, millions of potential customers remain without access to home broadband due to the complexities and time required to extend optical fiber connections to their premises.
