How to book Jio Fiber connection, installation charges
According to Reliance Jio, the interested consumers can register for Jio Fiber service by going to the company website – Jio.com – or MyJio app. If Jio Fiber is available at your location, a Jio representative will connect with you. Jio.com now carries a clear “Book Now” option to register for a new connection. Clicking on that link offers two options – one for a new connection and other if you want to upgrade your existing Fiber connection.
There will a one-time charge for getting a new Reliance Jio Fiber connection – Rs. 2,500, out of which Rs. 1,500 will be a refundable security deposit for the Jio router. Rest Rs. 1,000 will be non-refundable installation charge.
Validity of Jio Fiber preview offer
Ever since Reliance Jio officially unveiled the Jio Fiber broadband (previously known as JioGigaFiber), the service has been slowly rolling out to select consumers as a part of a preview offer. These consumers were only being charged a refundable security deposit of either Rs. 4,500 or Rs. 2,500, depending on the router being issued to them. As Jio launches the Jio Fiber service commercially, the preview offer subscribers are being notified about the future of the Jio Fiber service for them.
In a notification on the MyJio app, Reliance Jio has noted that the existing Jio Fiber subscribers will be migrated to paid plans. The company also writes that it will be reaching out to the preview subscribers individually to let them know of the migration details. Meanwhile, the preview subscribers can continue using their Jio Fiber broadband without interruption. As the Jio Fiber preview subscribers are said to be in millions, the migration is likely to take some time if Jio indeed plans to reach everyone individually.
