Ever since the JioFiber plans, earlier known as Jio DTH or Jio GigaFiber, have been announced, the buzz around the same has been at an all-time high. Although the prices may be more than what consumers were expecting, that has not stopped them from constantly enquiring about which JioFiber plan suits them the best.
Nonetheless, it could be an uphill task for JioFiber to acquire new subscribers as existing players like ACT Fibernet and BSNL are already offering a lot more data in their base plans. Furthermore, as per a report unveiled by CRISIL, JioFiber’s existing tariffs are unlikely to shake things up the way they did in wireless telecom. Apart from the price point, some of the other reasons for that could be as follows:
JioFiber Plans do not Include Jio DTH services?
According to a few reports, JioFiber plans do not include DTH services and consumers would have to pay extra to their local cable operators to enjoy watching TV channels in their homes. Reliance Jio has neither confirmed nor denied this report so far, and more clarity on the same is awaited.
No First-day First-Show Movies for Bronze, Silver and Gold JioFiber Plans
One of the announcements that consumers most excited during the 42nd Annual General Meeting of Reliance Jio was that they could watch First-day First-Show Movies from the comfort of their homes. However, according to the Reliance Jio website, this feature is only included for Diamond, Platinum and Titanium plans that cost Rs 2499, Rs 3999 and Rs 8499, per month respectively. The same goes for special sports content as well.
No Virtual Reality Headsets for Base JioFiber Plans
The mixed reality headsets or Jio Holoboard that promises theatre-like experience are included only in the for Diamond, Platinum and Titanium plans again and consumers of the base plan may need to pay more for these services.
1GBPS Internet Speed
Consumers who wish to enjoy speeds of up to 1GBPS need to opt for either the Platinum Plan or the Titanium Plan. Plans lower than that provide speeds of 100MBPS up to 500MBPS.
