On Monday 12th August, Mukesh Ambani-led oil-to-telecoms conglomerate Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) is hosting 42nd Annual General Meeting (AGM), and the company is expected to announce the details of the commercial Jio GigaFiber rollout. However, for this year’s AGM event, the GigaFiber isn’t the only expected service to be announced. Here’s what we can expect from the event.
The final launch of Jio GigaFiber
It’s almost a year now; GigaFiber has been on trial service. It is expected that Reliance will finally launch GigaFiber commercially along with its subscription fee and packages.
As per the rumours, GigaFiber subscriptions will start from as low as Rs with expected network speeds of 50Mbps and 100GB per month of data allotment.
Jio GigaTV could become a reality this monsoon
Jio has been hinting about its TV service which is expected to be called the GigaTV. Jio will rather rely on IPTV technology instead of conventional DTH technology, which means that the service will offer high resolution streaming of TV channels with HD audio over GigaFiber’s fibre network.
Launch of JioPhone 3
Every year at the AGM event Reliance has been announcing new JioPhone models, and this year, rumours are high around the JioPhone 3. As per the latest leaks, Jio has been working with MediaTek to develop the phone, and the platform will be KaiOS, which eventually suggests another feature phone.
The JioPhone 2 launched last year offers a QWERTY keyboard. Maybe this year’s phone could provide a touchscreen-enabled device similar to the older one but with 4G LTE voice and video calls out of the box.
