Jio has been a disruptive force ever since it entered the telecom market in 2016 with free 4G internet, that introduced hundreds of millions of Indians to the internet and drove down data prices immensely across the industry. Currently, Jio is rolling out its broadband Fibernet service to compete with other services such as Airtel, ACT, among others.
While JioFiber is currently a free-of-charge service — much like its telecom 4G VoLTE counterpart during its initial phase — the company has announced several data plans that will be implemented in the future.
Update: JioFiber plans have been announced starting at INR 699/month, with options for quarterly and yearly plans too. The starter or bronze plan gets you 100Mbps of speeds with 250GB data at high speeds, and then unlimited at a reduced speed of 1Mbps. You also get add-ons like Jio’s Homegateway, set-top box and subscription to JioCinema and JioSaavn. You can check the complete list of JioFiber WiFi plans alongwith various offers on quarterly, half-yearly and yearly plans here.
In this article, we’re going to explain how to change your JioFiber password, and also check your data usage as well as set data usage alerts.
