While the upcoming service has been on trial run since last year, he added that trial homes are, on average, consuming more than 100 GBs every month indicating the ever-increasing usage of internet in India.

For a smooth rollout of the fibre service, Jio also made significant investments in two large multi system operators (MSOs) of India – Hathway and Den Networks. “Over the past months, we have upgraded our MSOs’ infrastructure to world-class standards. Now LCO partners can offer the largest bouquet of high-definition channels to customers with better features, reliability and customer experience than even DTH,” Ambani commented.
