Data plan, speed, and installation

Reliance Jio says it does not levy installation charges, but it does take refundable security deposit of Rs.2,500 taken for the ONT device. Users can pay this amount through credit card, debit card, Jio Money or Paytm wallets.

Under the JioGigaFiber preview offer, Reliance is offering up to 100Mbps free data to users. Note that Jio offers only 50Mbps of speed on Wi-Fi with this device. Users, however, can get full 100Mbps speed with LAN connection to the router.

The offer also includes free access to host of Jio’s premium apps. In case, you exhaust your monthly data quota, you can top-up additional 40GB of data via Reliance MyJio app or through Jio.com. Right now, Jio’s GigaFiber services are pre-paid but the operator plans to launch post-paid plans soon.
