That it will be commercially available for everyone from the 5th of September that is Jio’s 3rd anniversary as he said that “we are pricing our plans to make it 1/10th the global rates to make it accessible for all Indian homes”.

Pricing and Plans
So as you all know that earlier rumors were that Jio will come at a base price of 600 Rupees at a speed of 50mbps but on 12th of August in AGM Jio has said that the base plan will start from 700 Rupees with a speed of 100mbps and goes all the way to 1Gbps which I already said start from 700 and goes all way to 10000 Rupees.
Jio has not said anything about the data amount i.e. how much data will Jio be providing to customers or will it be FUB based plans or will it be totally unlimited. But as we all heard in previous rumors that it will provide 100GB of data per month in the base plan.
Pay for only one thing -Jio
As he said in his speech that the consumers will be going to pay for only one service i.e. either for data or call, but further he clearly mentioned that Jio Fiber consumers will only pay for data and the voice calls from home will be absolutely free forever.
ISD Plans for Jio Fiber Landline
The company has said on that on their fixed landline service for ISD calls they are going to charge 500 rupees but for now, it is only for US and Canada, and Mukesh Ambani has also said that Jio home phone will be 1/5th to 1/10th of international of the existing industry tariffs.
Free 4K TV and 4K Set Top Box
Jio has a big announcement on their yearly plans that if you are taking their yearly plans for 4K content you will get a 4K TV and a 4K set-top box for free. And not only that the 4K set-top box has gaming capability just like PS4 and Xbox One as Akash Ambani shown in the premiere playing FIFA, so this thing is going to be crazy for Indian console players.
The OTT applications service
As you all know that we have to pay for internet and OTT services like NETFLIX, HOTSTAR, AMAZON PRIME, etc. separately which becomes very expensive for most of us. Jio has announced that it will be providing most leading premium OTT applications services in their Jio Fiber plans, but they didn’t mention which applications they are tied-up with. So let’s hope for the best.
Smart Home and IoT services
Jio will be making their smart home and IoT services from 1st January 2020 in which you can enjoy your AR, VR, and the most amazing Mixed Reality especially for students who want to learn something in a fun and easy way so that they can better understand.
So finally a revolutionary change is going to happen in India, it was first done by Jio in the mobile sim card market by providing a 4G sim with a very competitive price point and free-roaming all over the country and free unlimited calling by charging only for data, not for any other services and again it is Jio coming with its FTTH to make the competition even harder which is good for us.
