New Delhi: After catapulting India to the position of the world’s largest mobile data consuming nation, RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani on Thursday said Reliance Jio’s fibre-based broadband offering could place the country among the top three nations in fixed broadband from a low rank of 135 currently.
Jio, which stormed the telecom industry with free calls and SMS bundled with dirt cheap data in 2016, had begun rolling out its ambitious ultra-high speed fibre-based broadband services for homes and offices.

“And from day one, JioGigaFiber will offer complete fixed-mobile convergence where Indians will travel seamlessly between mobile and fixed broadband networks 4G and 5G when on the move and Wi-Fi when indoors," Ambani said at the India Mobile Congress 2018.
“India will rise from a lowly 135th rank to being among the top three nations in fixed broadband at a pace that will surprise the world," he added.
At present, major rivals of Jio offer download speed up to 100 megabit per second for around ₹ 1,000 per month for home users. Jio claims to offer around 10 times more speed to home users.
