Reliance Jio Infocomm (RJio), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), will commercially launch its broadband service – JioFiber – on September 5. The company is likely to launch the services, expected to be the cheapest broadband plans in the country, with full details.

Tariffs will start at ₹700 per month for 100 Mbps speed, and will go up to ₹10,000 per month depending on the data plan. Voice calls on the landline telephone given with the broadband connection will be free, RIL Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani had said at the company’s AGM in August.
