Reliance Jio recently launched its 4G service with competitive pricing and while anouncing the Jio tariff plans last week, Reliance Industries Ltd chairman Mukesh Ambani also mentioned that the company will soon be launching a fiber internet service called Reliance Jio GigaFiber to select cities in the country. The brand has now started testing out the Jio FTTH (fiber-to-the-home) service in cities including Mumbai and Pune.

Similar to Jio 4G, the company is providing the Jio fiber internet service under a preview offer to select customers. However, unlike the Jio Preview Offer, the FTTH would be offered only at those locations where the fiber cable line has been laid. In his AGM speech, Ambani said that the Jio FTTH service will offer network speeds of up to 1Gbps. Screenshots posted by a trial user on Twitter depict download speeds of 743Mbps and uploads of 73Mbps.
