Jio is now preparing to disrupt the country’s fixed-line broadband space and is planning to launch of its high-speed fiber to the home (FTTH) broadband service early next year. It is currently working aggressively to expand its optic fiber network in the country to target 50 million households in the first phase of roll out.
Jio plan is to target 100 million households across these cities with its FTTH service, which it will bundle with IPTV service, called Reliance Jio DTH.
The Mukesh Ambani-led telecom operator, which is currently running beta trials for its FTTH service in around ten cities, including Mumbai, Delhi and some cities in Gujarat, is planning to launch the commercial services in more than 30 cities early next year. The telecom operator will also bundle its IPTV service with the fixed broadband service.
2018 would be the year Jio will be aiming to become the leading operator in all the three formats- mobile broadband, fixed line broadband, and DTH. – Telecom Talk
