Mukesh Ambani announced the roll out of Jio GigaFiber from Sept. 5, that will offer free voice calls for life from landline phones, high speed broadband of minimum speed of 100 MB per second and free high definition TV and dish with minimum monthly subscription of Rs 700.

The oil-to-telecom conglomerate’s Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani, speaking at its annual general meeting, also announced unlimited ISD calling service from Jio landlines at fixed monthly rental of Rs 500 to U.S. and Canada.

“In India even the most basic Jio GigaFiber will start at 100 Mbps at the lowest end,” Ambani said. “We have plans to go all the way to 1 GB per second. We are pricing our plan at one-tenth of global rate to make it accessible for every home.”

He said that plan will start at monthly rental of Rs 700 and go up to Rs 10,000. From mid-2020, the premium Jio GigaFiber customers will also get to watch new movies on the same day of its release, Ambani said.

“Premium Jio GigaFiber customers can watch movies at home the same day they are released in theatres!” he said. “This service will be launched in the middle of 2020.”
