Jio Fiber Review

Reliance Jio fiber revolutionized the Broadband Fiber industry in 2019 when they launched the Jio fiber internet officially in India. From 2018 to September 2019, they were running a to collect jio fiber review in a trial based on a few cities to check the user experience and collect feedback.

With the ever-increasing demand for a good internet connection, the search for a reliable broadband service continues. There is nothing more aggravating than a constant connection drop while you are in the middle of some important task. 

Nowadays, half the world works from home, students take online classes, or people stream shows, so having a good connection is the ultimate need.

After dominating the telecom market with its data plans and services in India, Reliance Jio continues its ascend towards success by offering its Jio fiber broadband connection with improved plans.

While there are endless options in the market, we will focus on Jio Fiber. Read on and find out everything about this broadband service in this Jio Fiber review.


Jio Fiber Review 2021

Here, I am writing my reliance jio fiber review which is my own experience of using since the year 2019 and till this day, what I am facing and what pros and cons of Jio Fiber I experienced all the details as I mentioned in this article.

I am not a big fan of Jio Sim because, in my area, I usually get 3G speed. I switched to Airtel, which gives 20-25 Mbps speed.

jio gigafiber review 2021

Before the Jio Fiber came into my city, I was using Tikona and Airtel Broadband and I am paying at that time Rs500 per month for a 10mbps plan with 80GB of bandwidth because we don’t have any other offer left in my city to select such plans.

In a trial period of the jiofiber which unfortunately I have only got for the last three months, I got a 100mbps plan with unlimited data per month. The connection of Jio internet at that time doesn’t come with the set top box to watch ott and tv channels.

At the time of the jiofiber review trial, I haven’t got the set-top box plan. Hence, I don’t have experience until I finally paid broadband area’s market customers waiting for the jio fiber internet new connection with a set-top box. It seems like Jio Fibre will control the market in the broadband area.

At the time of launch, Jio announced the fiber plan starting from 699rs per month plus GST with a 100mbps plan with no data limit with an OTT subscription.

The drawback here, they launched the plan at a higher price, the same plan is available from the competitors like Airtel and local internet service providers. Even I only used 2 months and decided to stay with Tikona and Airtel.

After a lot of feedback from the customer voice, Reliance finally revises the jio fiber subscription and the basic plan is starting worth rs of 399rs per month with 30mbps speed and unlimited data(2 TB).


Jio Fiber Broadband Revised Plans:

Monthly PlanUnlimited SpeedTotal(Incl.GST)OTT Subscription
₹ 39930 MBPS₹ 470.82Not Available
₹ 699100 MBPS₹ 824.82Not Available
₹ 999150 MBPS₹ 1,178.82Amazon Prime, Disney+, Hotstar VIP, SonyLIV, ZEE5, AltBalaji, etc
₹ 1,499300 MBPS₹ 1,768.82Netflix Basic, Prime, Disney+, Hotstar VIP, etc
₹ 2,499500 MBPS₹ 2,948.82Netflix Standard, Prime, VIP, Disney+, etc
₹ 3,9991 GBPS₹ 4,718.82Netflix Standard, Prime, VIP, Disney+, etc
₹ 8,4991 GBPS (6600GB Data)₹ 10,028.82Netflix Premium, Prime, VIP, Disney+, etc

I decided to go with a 399rs plan to see the speed and performance, I have to pay around 421rs including 18% GST. It just a basic and acceptable plan at this price range even the airtel v fiber basic plan is starting at rs of 499rs per month with unlimited data to 8,499rs per month plan is available.

The company vows better speeds than most broadband operators at a reasonable price. Moreover, it adds extra features to sweeten the whole package. Jio Fiber broadband also offers different plans to suit internet users of all kinds.

The biggest change in the newly revised jio fiber plan is that all plans currently provide equal speed so the download rate will be equivalent to upload rates. Earlier, Jio Fiber just utilized to supply 10% of the program speed for uploads, the data limit is 3300MB(3.3 TB), these are the unlimited wifi internet plans available.

No matter which package you opt for, you can rest assured of its performance. Here is a breakdown of all of its plans and the speed and data they are offering. The previous plan has some name mentioned below:

  • Bronze Plan: 30Mbps
  • Silver Plan: 100Mbps
  • Gold Plan: 150Mbps
  • Diamond Plan: 300Mbps
  • Diamond+ Plan: 500Mbps
  • Platinum Plan: 1GB
  • Titanium Plan: 1GB

After the revised plan, they removed the plans’ name by simply adding the Jio Fiber 399. The data limit is up to 6TB comes under fair usage policy.

All the plans come with free unlimited voice calling, and they give you the landline connection, which can be used through fiber. The only problem I don’t like is you always have to switch ON your jio fiber router to use the voice calling, and they won’t provide a landline phone.


Jio GigaFiber Connection and Speed

Reliance company promises a solid connection with its Jio Fiber service and internet speed that makes users happy in everything from uploading things to gaming for long periods.

I ran the test on both Laptop and Desktop, I am using Macbook Air so it doesn’t have only connect through WIFI. You see the internet speed of the fiber connection in Wifi, the screenshot attached below:

Maximum jio Wifi 100 Mbps plan speed

Internet Speed totally depends on the latency, the lower latency means high speed, there will be a slight speed delay on wifi and LAN, when you check the internet speed on a computer or laptop you may get the internet speeds in full throttle while in Wifi it may get fluctuating depends on where the Jio Fiber router is placed on your home and how far you are.

Everyone has their jio fibre reviews and ratings published on forums, blogs, social networking sites, and Youtube. Mine is acceptable for the speed and performance, a happy customer so far but can’t say for the future when the jio fiber connection started increasing.

I’m a normal internet user but required good speed to download and upload files. I downgraded my plan to 399 for 30 Mbps, which is sufficient, but if you need a 100 Mbps plan, then 699rs is enough without the required OTT apps subscription.


Jio Fibernet OTT Subscription:

What I like about Reliance jio fibre when youJio Fiber’s performance; connection they are giving away a 30 days trial of a 150mbps plan worth rs 999 plus GST.   The trial version has two options: 1 and 2.

1st option in Trial the one-time refundable amount which you have to pay is Rs2500 and in this trial, they are providing you the Wifi modem and 4K set-top box, unlimited data, and OTT apps subscription, like Disney+, SonyLIV, Zee5, Alt Balaji, VOOT, EROS, Discovery and etc.

2nd option the refundable amount is Rs1500, and except for OTT apps and 4K box, the rest are all the same including unlimited free Voice calling anywhere within India

An amazing aspect of Jio Fibre is that it offers different OTT apps subscriptions with its plans like Prime Video, Netflix, SonyLiv, Disney+ Hotstar, JioCinema, ZEE5, VOOT & VOOT Kids, etc. You can enjoy all your favorite shows without any lagging in a clear display and quick buffering.

Where is the Amazon Prime & Netflix OTT subscription?

Now you are wondering where amazon prime and Netflix on jio fiber OTT apps in the trial. Unfortunately, there is no amazon prime and Netflix free OTT apps subscription available in the trial. When your 30 days trial over you can buy the plan then you will get the Prime and Netflix OTT subscription.

A trial plan is basically a good idea to check the performance of the Jio Fiber, if we compare it to other competitors like Airtel, BSNL, they are not providing such low price plan and trial.

Netflix OTT apps Basic Subscription is available from the 1499rs plan including Amazon prime, then in the next plan 2,499 have Netflix Standard, then in a higher plan of Rs8,499 have Netflix Premium.  The Basic plan of OTT apps subscription is starting from worth Rs 999/-.


Jio Fiber vs Airtel xStream Fiber:

When writing this post, In my area still, Airtel Fiber yet to launch, I can’t give you enough comparison between Airtel. Still, as an Airtel Broadband user for the last 16 years, my experience is always good with Airtel in terms of speed, performance, and support.

Check the comparison table between Airtel fiber vs Jio fiber plan.

[TABLE AIRTEL VS JIO] 

As I mentioned in the table, Airtel XStream fiber plans are starting from Rs499 for up to 40mbps plan with unlimited data.

    • I took 6 months plan with a promise 6 months free internet will be provided with same plan. When I recieved invoice there was no such mention. I understood their cheap tactics and raised SR to cancel my connection. After taking money , guy didnt pick my call. I never experienced this with my current broadband provider. So luckily i saved myself from this worst service but hoping they return my full money back to be sure its not a pure scam from Reliance Jio but just careless and arrogant staff.

      • Reliance Jio cheating people by their false promises. This is one of the poor and worst network.
        I returned my device almost a month back but till I didn’t receive my mo ey back. Even customer care people also not responding.
        I think this is also scam by jio.
        Don’t go with Reliance and jio.
        This organization is harmful to customers as well as country.
        I am moving g to VI.

  4. Pathetic customer service
    Tried to relocate my wifi. instead of helping wverybody was trying to sell me a 3 month plan and delayed my shifting for more then 10 days . the engineers said call customer service and customer service (bein rude) said that they can’t do anything, enginners will do.these peole kept on registering complaints every 24 hours without any resolution. the only option left is leave your security money and usw any other wifi. NEVER EVER CAME ACROSS SUCH USELESS CUSTOMER SERVICE.

  5. I am from Indore(M.P.). This is regarding their refund policy and support. I requested on their website for connection.Same evening, I received call and their executive collected Rs. 1500/- and promised for next day installation, which was not done.It took 4 days.After that, I used for around 20 days and since, I had to shift to another location.I requested them for the same. But since their connection was not available in the area, I requested for disconnection, which they proceeded within 24 hour and my internet services were shut off. Before completion of 1 month, they also collected my router and I was told, I will get the refund after 15 working days. After 15 days, I had too ask them many times for refund and after about 2 months, they transferred only 500Rs. When asked for Rs. 1000, they did not reply me.So beware of this refund thing.

  6. INSTALLATION IS A PAIN
    Extremely bad experience after a Jio executive sold a fibre connection to me promising installation after two hours. Three days later, no connection. Received message that my Order Number NO0000IXQ9PY had a schedule for installation at 09-10-2021 : 09:15:00. No one turned up. No installation. Extremely unprofessional. Poor service.
    Guys, keep this experience in mind when you think of Jio Fibre.
