Here's a compilation of everything we know so far about Jio Fiber commercial launch.

Telecom operator Reliance Jio is likely to provide free set top box with its every broadband connection to woo direct-to-home and cable TV customers, according to a source privy to the development. If you are a Jio user, you can also register from the MyJio app. Reliance Jio is also bundling free landline calls, complimentary access to OTT platforms, and free set-top-box as part of its introductory offers for Reliance Jio Fiber. The base plan offers 100Mbps speed and 100GB data with free voice calls, TV video calling and conferencing.

You need to log on to https://gigafiber.jio.com/registration website. Besides, under the Reliance JioFiber welcome offer, you will get a free HD/4K smart TV along with 4K set-top box. However, there is no information on how it would function since TVs don't come with in-built cameras. We can expect this box to run graphics-intensive games like Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 which was demonstrated at the launch event.

Jio set top box comes with features like VR and MR compatibility, gaming and more.

Billionaire Mukesh Ambani-led company is slated to launch optical fibre-based JioFiber broadband service from September 5.

Reliance Jio is asking users to make one-time payment of Rs 2,500 for the installation of Jio Fiber service. You can know more about the service here. He also said premium customers would be "able to watch movies in their living rooms the same day these movies are released".

On recharging, you won't have to pay installation charges. The brand has also partnered with Eros Now and ZEE5 to include more movie titles and live TV channels within its entertainment catalogue.

While it's not launching tomorrow, the Jio Internet of Things (IoT) platform has been touted to connect over 1 billion different IoT devices in the next couple of years.

That being said, Airtel did not reveal any plans of providing Triple Play services to the customers, but once JioFiber reveals the plans, we're expecting Airtel to consider that option as well.
