    Cable TV and DTH consumers are eagerly waiting for Jio fiber three in one offer initially offered by reliance internet provider, however after hasty introduction of unlimited internet access, free phone calls through land line connection giving only broadband gateway as a router through optical fibre have created uncertainty about the cost of Jio set top box and monthly subscription because main attraction is HD quality and more number of channels for the existing tv subscribers so I am afraid as to how much total package with instruments will cost us hence more clarification is required from reliance Jio operators

    I want three options i.s. broadband, free voice call and live TV channels in one source. I don’t need any LCO services in it . Price factor should be my existing DTH budget or a little bit more. More clarification about price is not clear . I agree with basic pac.

      I agree to this.
      Right now, the broadband plans announced by Jio are not attractive enough as it is. In Jio TV apart from restriction of Star channels there is no problem as such. So I would also say that there should not be any role of LCO in this. Right now I pay 700/mo for DTH pack and 1400 for broadband (ACT), thus was planning to go with Diamond plan…but it goes upto 3000 with GST which is not that attractive.

    I am already a member of bio giga fiber with a deposit of Rs 4500/-.
    I would like to have a DTH.@ payment of Rs 699/ month.
    I can pay annual payment also.
    How much I should pay ? What about my earlier deposit?

      Dear it is not DTH service jio only provide setup box you have to subscribe local cable operator and pay separately to him. Jio provide only broadband and landline service minimum charges 699 + 18% GST you have already paid 4500 so you need to pay any security deposit and installation again only monthly 699 + GST you have to pay. As per market value it is not cheap but you have a good speed internet. I am disappointed that jio is not providing DTH TV channels combined. Where as while providing free trial jio employee promise that TV channels will also be provided in this pack.

    Ever since Jio broadband has stepped into the telecom industry, everyone is only demanding Jio, Jio is a big competition for the rest of the telecom company.
