He also mentioned about the offers related to providing Jio 4k set-top box and free calls on a landline.

Among the most intriguing features proposed by the RIL is one where customers can enjoy a movie released in theatres on the same day in the comfort of their homes. They plan to actualize this plan by mid-2020. They call it the “First Day First Show” feature.
The internet speed will start from the basic plan at 100 Mbps up to 1 Gbps.

Netflix and Reliance Jio Collaboration
Reliance is in talks for collaboration with people’s favorite OTT (Over The Top) platform Netflix. The OTT platform bypasses all cable, broadcast, and satellite TV while directly streaming media only via the internet. If the two giants come together, the users are surely going to cherish.
A large number of people are waiting impatiently to register for the Jio Giga Fiber as the company has provided reputed services in the past for the internet. Netflix at the same time aims to reach out and crossing the bar of 50 million Indian users. This tie-uptie up would be a benefit to all: Reliance (RIL), Netflix, and the public.
All in all, we filter the Jio Giga Fiber offer in the following three packages:
- A base-pack with stupendous speed.
- A clubbed pack i.e. a combination of broadband and TV offering.
- A premium package that is high end and equipped with IoT(Internet of Things) devices compatibility.
Reliance is already a big name and has a customer base of nearly 170 million subscribers. With Jio Fiber, it won’t come as a surprise if Jio reaches every nook and corner of India. This will be a matter of delight for many small, medium and enterprise businesses.
We hope that all the claims turn out just as promised and it will be one of the biggest advances technically and digitally for India.
