Jio GigaFiber Detailed Review – Is It Worth The Money?

Waited for so long till they announced Jio Gigafiber at a cheap rate.

Jio GigaFibre is the best choice in the broadband connection I’ve ever made. Before that, I had a terrible experience with the Tikona Infinet.

Well, good things happen to those who wait. And that’s the same case with me. While they installing the Jio GigaFibre connection around my house I was so eager that when it is gonna complete, Well they did it pretty fast.

So I had a connection on the 3rd of august, 2020.

Before you find a total cost here & there, I will leave it a total sum here, which is 3500 rupees.

This is it, a long story drafted in a short. Now make sure to read the full Jio GigaFiber review.

Jio GigaFiber: My Most Awaited Internet

I started using a broadband connection in 2018. The 1st one I used is YOU broadband which gives superior speed but the service I get is worst in my case.

February 2019 was a big headache as their Internet continuously not working due to fiber cut issues.

Then Tikona, which completely a different story and the worst experience in my life I ever had with a company.

Since I am interested in business-related stuff and new I knew that Ambani sir has big plans related to Jio. Well it’s kinda prediction of mine and in reality, this is happening, the reliance family gets richer and richer.

So I decided to settle with their service even in 2019 I do have some complaint with Jio sim service but I believe that within a time Jio provides the best service. Think long term.

Why I choose Jio GigaFiber?

Jio GigaFiber Review

The reason is simple it’s cheap with lots of services, hold on – is it true? Well here’s the suspense, you’ll get more to know about it.

I personally admire the service provided by Jio GigaFiber, In one platform you’ll get:

  • High-speed Internet
  • OTT platform access – in selected plans
  • App Store (it’s not a google play)
  • You can even run you cable connection with their set-up box
  • Quality service support

See, things get complicated when you compare it to other cable services. But trust me I’ve already done it for you and figure out how it is beneficial. Stay tuned.

What are the benefits of Jio-Giga Fibre?

Jio Gigafiber benifits

The first benefit is the plan customization. Also, they developed a plan which cost around 399 but including 18% GST, it costs a total of 474 rupees. I truly think it is a fair deal.

A dual-band option, In which they give a 2.4 GHz band that is a normal one. Another one is 5 GHz that delivers an insane speed but within a close range only.

My TV is right under the main router. The setup-up box under the TV is connected with the 5 GHz band frequency and that setup-box connected via HDMI to the TV.

Now Here are the following screenshot. In which what you see is 399 rupees plan speed that offers 30mbps.

Just keep reading because this is the benefits section and everyone has flaws.

How Jio GigaFibre Is Effective? A Calculation Of My Own Home

Now from here, you can use a note and calculator. It helps you convincing your parents to get this service home.

I started with the 100mbps which includes the OTT platform access, in this Amazon Prime Video was not available – Well I don’t even use that.

We are 3 person – Me – Mom – Dad, we all are using jio sim internet for almost 2 years.

PersonRecharge Cost(Before Jio GigaFiber)
Me449 – 2GB/day – 56 days (It was so hard for me to manage with this 2GB data because I figure out that my average data use per day is nearly 6-7GB)
Mom399 – 1.5GB/day – 56 days
Dad449 – 2GB/day – 56 days (their plans vary but my father get this multiple times)
Total Recharge Cost1297 Rupees
Cable cost(300rs) + Recharge Cost1597 Rupees

With Jio Fiber We all moved to a 129/month plan. Since we get 56 days in previous jio recharge plans, Here I combined the calculation of 2-month recharge cost.

Total Number Of a PersonPlan: 2GB/Month(28 Days) x 2Data Provided
3129 x 2(Month0 = 258| 258 x 3(Person Count) = 77412GB

I have not included a cable cost because after receiving Jio GigaFiber We don’t even need it.

If you wonder why I haven’t add Jio GigaFiber plan cost here’s the answer.

I recently opted for 30mbps plan and I am happy with it. If you know correct number then it is 1722, but still cost effective as I am not limited with data.

Here’s a quick comparison showing plans of OTT platforms per month and how jio fiber could be more effective.

OTT Platform NamePrice/Month
Netflix499 – Basic Plan
Disney+Hotstar VIP399
Zee599
Amazon Prime129

Total Cost1524 Rupees

Excluding Netflix, the 999 rupees plan has all the other OTT platform access. If you want to know more about plans, then here are recharge plans for Jio GigaFiber. Just click the link below.

My Conclusion On Jio GigaFiber

I loved the speed and appreciate this service because its not just an ordinary fiber cable provides, it’s a complete package I always wanted.

Since I am not an OTT geek I don’t mind the subscription package but when they installed it they give me a 799 rupees plan which has few OTT accessibility options.

Pros

  • Good service and demo at the time of installation
  • High-speed internet
  • Voice command in remote
  • A 4k setup box
  • Not a single drop-in network

Cons

  • Poor build quality of the box and remote
  • Remote response latency is low

So far, I loved it.
