JioFiber Connection Currently Free, DTH Connection Coming Soon: Users

Several new and existing users claim that JioFiber services are still being provided free of cost and the DTH services will be available at no extra charge

JioFiber plans may not be as disruptive as was being expected, but the connection is apparently still being installed at no additional charges apart from the one-time security deposit of Rs 2500. Although there is no clarity as to until when the services will be offered to new and existing users for free, the JioFiber data connection currently does seem to be available at no cost.

A blogger from Bangalore, whose Twitter handle is @iVenpu, has shared his experience with the JioFiber network and he says that he is quite satisfied with it. “Got JioFiber at home today.. Morning 10 AM, salesperson came, 5 minutes to sign-up and payment. in an hour’s time service executives came and installed. From starting of sales trans to getting wifi connected in 3 hours flat.. Nice speed.. clean work too.. happy (sic),” he says.

He also claims that the services were installed after paying a onetime fee of Rs 2500, and he is getting data at the speed of 100MBPS per month. He also shared that Jio officials approached him themselves and asked if he was interested in the services.

The same has been confirmed by another user on Twitter, and several existing customers from Delhi. “As of now all that they have said is we will be getting a landline connection soon. While installing they had said data will be free for few months. They have not contacted us about the new plans or asked us to start paying,” says an existing customer to DataQuest from New Delhi who does not wish to be named.

JioFiber Data Free as of Now, DTH after Regular Billing Starts ‘At No Extra Cost’

One of the things that lacked clarity when JioFiber plans were announced was if users would have to pay extra for the DTH or cable TV connection. However, customers may be able to enjoy television services along with the regular data plans at no extra cost. “Only net for now. Once regular monthly billing starts, we will get the set-top box too, for watching live channels,” shares @iVenpu on Twitter.

Customers will get all services through data and the Jio 4K set-top box will provide live TV channels live using JioFiber, he adds. The user also says that the Jio officials while installation said that around 640 channels will be offered without any charges apart from the broadband charges including the landline connection.

The official Jio website also currently maintains that the Preview Offer still holds good. “The current offer is JioFiber preview offer which gives you ultra-high-speed internet up to 100Mbps free for a Limited Preview Period and a complimentary access to a host of Jio’s premium apps. In case, you consume your data quota you can continue to enjoy our high speed internet services by performing a complimentary data top-up of 40 GB via MyJio App or through As this is a preview offer, there are no installation charges levied but there is a refundable security deposit of Rs 2,500 taken for the ONT device (JioFiber Router). This amount needs to be paid through Debit card, Credit Card, Jio Money or Pay TM,” says the website.

All that is said, more clarity on the current JioFiber plans, and the DTH services will only unfurl in the days to come. Reliance Jio has made no official statements or announcements after the JioFiber plans were rolled out last month.

    Well, i wished i too had the same experience but not. I had paid them the amount almost 10days back and still they havnt installed the connection as yet and looking at the response at indirapuram’s , ghaziabad office i dont have much expectation from them either. No one is bothered at the store to attend customer. The store manager cant handle his subordinates. For me jiofiber is a fail.

  2. Kshitij H Patel

    I have paid money 2500 since last two month they are still not able to give connection I am going to leave gigafiber soon.
    Totally disappointed


    I too enjoy Jio preview offer since July 10th. Got WiFi and landline connection. No idea when I will get set top box for viewing TV channels. When I contacted local Jio team it will be given FIFO basis. Till date I have not get and no Idea when I will get. Only Jio Team can confirm.


    Yester day jiofibre landline has been installed free of any charges except a refundable security deposits of rs.2500/ took some 4hrs to do the job.the speed was showing 30 to 35 mbps.when asked the executive why the speed was slow he replied its because of the leed provided with the rouetr not able to fix up to the tv as it was an old model.however as claimed by reliance that after set top box is connected to all the lcd tvs wd convert into smart tv and thats the time when the full speed wd be atained.we are eagerly waiting for that.

    When it will work at Malkangiri town(Odisha) ? Here the jio tower is not working properly. It has Very weak signal. Please do some thing for which we remain our trust upon jio.

  7. Sukant Kumar Sahu

    I think jio fiber connection will never come to Malkangiri(Odisha). The regional staff not giving any importance to this dist. But still we love jio

  8. Rishi Lal Arora

    Is reliance jio fibre not yet available in ludhiana Punjab.?
    I read that this will be available from may 2019 but till date I am unable to find it out.
    Please install jio fibre at the earliest if possible


    I have Jio Fibre connected on 28th August in dehra dun. The internet connection is good but the land line phone is not good. I called the service engineer. They came quite fast but could not resolve the problem. The volume is too low in spite of changing phones. I hope they will resolve it soon. I have a Bsnl connection for land line which I was about to disconnect but now I am keeping it till the Jio land line problem is resolved. Only for internet Jio Fibre is not worth the money because there are much cheaper Wifi offers from other companies and unless DTH is included free in Jio Fibre it is not worth.

  10. Undisclosed

    When are we getting the jio fiber connection
    I am from Bangalore

    I am really very satisfied with the speed and service provided by Jio Team.I think it will be game changer in television channel world.
    Jio Rocks

  12. Mithun

    I think they r not good at all in Bangalore as I had applied twice in there website and till date I did not receive a call from them. When too many ppl apply of course they are least bothered, and ultimately we have to change our needs, as it s a big company and whom you are going to blame

  13. AK Mani

    Charge 500 & give only net. It will be a great success. All other things are extra at reasonable prices. You are the king if you follow this. Land line .& Set of box at 250/-. Do not bother about providing TV everyone is having more than 2 high end TVs.

  14. Ranganath

    I thought it will be a game changer in the market when they launched but not so they should give free dth connection then only it is worth

  15. Arvind Arya

    I registered for new connection (Jaipur) about two months back but there is no further development from Jio side.No one has reverted back till date.

  16. Sandip Guha

    I have applied twice online but got no response from Jio . I also requested them to guide me to the nearest Jio outlet, but no response. Can someone tell me it is available in PIN 700084.

  17. Radio

    I am user since June 2019.
    – internet exhausts quickly.
    – high latency. Not suitable for office voice calls and screen sharing. I found Act fiber better.

    – even after settop box there wont be any tv / cable / dth kind if service. Jio setop box is like android box / fire tv stick / apple tv box. Only streaming if jio tv app.

  18. Sagar Trivedi

    I am Jio lover i appreciate you that you free First 4 month Free 4g net to all new jio user. I am really very satisfied with the speed and service provided by Jio Team.I think it will be game changer in television channel world.
