It’s no hidden fact that the entrance of Reliance Jio in the market disrupted the telecom space. Jio kicked off the concept of cheaper plans, unlimited voice calls, and unlimited 4G data, which were then followed by other telecom giants of the industry like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea Cellular and others. Even since Jio was introduced, the telecom network topped the charts of highest speed and so on. Soon after Jio’s mobile network became popular the company moved on to bringing broadband service called the Jio GigaFiber and also entered the feature phone segment. Jio is yet to make an official announcement of the Jio GigaFiber, but the service has been made available to some users. Even before the official release, the broadband service is creating a buzz in the market space.
Jio GigaFiber Achieves an Average Playback Rate of 3.48 Mbps in October
To recall, Reliance Jio’s head Mukesh Ambani introduced the Jio GigaFiber service during the company’s 41st AGM this year. Soon after the announcement of the service, it was available for registering. Even before the official rollout, the broadband service is looking great on the leaderboard. The company, Reliance Jio, claims to offer fast internet speeds at attractive prices to the price conscious Indians. The entire Jio GigaFiber service is designed on similar lines. A couple of months ago in September, Jio GigaFiber made its first appearance on Netflix Internet Service Providers (ISPs) speed Index list and as expected managed position itself in one of the top positions with an average playback rate of 3.41 Mbps. The October Netflix Internet Service Providers (ISPs) speed Index list is now out, and the scenario yet again remains the same. As per the October Netflix ISPs, Jio GigaFiber has managed to beat the rival services with an average playback rate of 3.48 Mbps.
Bharti Airtel Below Jio
Jio GigaFiber rules the ISP LeaderBoard of Netflix for consecutive two months, while Airtel slips down to the fourth position as of October list. The October Netflix Internet Service Providers (ISPs) speed Index list shows that while Jio GigaFiber tops the list, Airtel settles for the fourth position. The list further shows that Jio GigaFiber is followed by 7 Star Digital, Spectranet and Airtel. Not only that, but Jio GigaFiber also manages to beat some of the popular broadband service providers like Hathway and BSNL. To recall, Spectra used to top the Netflix’s ISP leaderboard a while back, but now, Jio GigaFiber has replaced it.
The official release of Jio GigaFiber is yet to happen, but Reliance has already started rolling out the broadband service to some users for testing. The official release is expected to happen soon and the service is said to be available in 1,100 cities across India. It’s astonishing to see Jio already making a mark in this way. – Telecomtalk
