Jio GigaFiber launch is bound to take place in a few months. However, that hasn’t stopped the Reliance Jio owned unit from consistently topping the Netflix ISP Speed Index list. As the trend goes, since September 2018, Jio GigaFiber has topped the Netflix ISP list for the month of March 2019 as well.
The Netflix internet service providers list rates the prime time Netflix performance on a particular ISP around the globe. Nevertheless, Jio GigaFiber average playback bitrate has dropped from 3.61Mbps in February to 3.57Mbps in March. However, this doesn’t mean that the overall speed of Jio GigaFiber has dropped as Netflix only measures the average prime time bitrate for Netflix content streamed to Netflix members during a particular month. Netflix also measures the speed via all available end user devices.
Apart from Jio GigaFiber, 7 Star Digital, Spectranet, Airtel, ATRIA Convergence Technologies and other ISPs have also retained their ranks as every month. But what is to be noted is Spectranet has almost managed to match the speed of 7 Star Digital. Also, the state owned BSNL stands at the 13th position and MTNL at the 14th position on the Netflix ISP.
The speeds displayed on Netflix ISP, though does not indicate the overall performance of the internet service provider, is still significant as Netflix is the world’s leading internet entertainment service with 130 million paid memberships in over 190 countries. Members have access to TV series, documentaries and feature films across a wide variety of genres and languages.
As far as the Jio GigaFiber launch on a commercial scale is concerned, it is expected to take place in the second half of 2019, as per media reports. Consumers in several cities like New Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai have availed the Jio GigaFiber services and the launch is taking place in a phased manner.
Jio GigaFiber services have managed to capture the imagination of consumers for the promise of HD quality entertainment, Gigabit WiFi, TV, Smart Home, Free Calling, multi-party video conferencing, virtual reality gaming, shopping, and so on at affordable prices.
