Going further, the Jio Fiber users for JioForever Gold annual plan will get a free Muse 2 Bluetooth speaker. Silver annual plan subscribers will get Thump 2 Bluetooth speakers.

Gold plan subscribers will also get a free 24-inch HD TV but only if they opt for a two-year plan and Titanium annual plan subscribers will get a 43-inch 4K TV.  

Six-month plans will come with one month of extra service and 50 percent extra data, whereas the 3-month plan will just provide 25 percent extra data. 

Jio Fiber Preview Offer

Since the inception of Reliance JioFiber, the broadband services were available for preview to selected customers who opted for preview offer. These consumers were only being charged a refundable security deposit of either Rs. 4,500 or Rs. 2,500, depending on the router being issued to them. Now the services have been launched commercially, users will be notified and migrated to the paid plans. As per the company, it will be reaching out to the preview subscribers individually to let them know of the migration details. Meanwhile, the preview subscribers can continue using their Jio Fiber broadband without interruption. As the Jio Fiber preview subscribers are said to be in millions, the migration is likely to take some time if Jio indeed plans to reach everyone individually.

How to apply for a Jio Fiber connection?

To get a Jio Fiber connection, you need to visit official Jio Fiber Website or MyJio app and register yourself by providing the address where you want the Jio Fiber connection to be installed. Enter your name, email and mobile number and confirm the OTP to register yourself. If Jio Fiber is available at your location a Reliance Jio sales representative will soon connect with you for the installation of the Jio Fiber connection. Till then keep using your existing broadband connection.

What are the Jio Fiber Installation Charges?

There will a one-time charge for installation - Rs. 2,500, out of which Rs. 1,500 will be the refundable security deposit for the Jio router. Rest Rs. 1,000 will be non-refundable. 

What documents are required for Jio Fiber connection?

You need to provide your Aadhaar card or any other proof of identification and proof of address like gas connection bill, driving license, election card etc.

How to track your JioFiber activation request?

After you have submitted your documents, you will receive a confirmation call where you will be asked for the installation appointment. According to Reliance Jio, the total time taken to install and activate the connection is roughly 2 hours from the time engineer visits your home. Users, however, can track the status of the installation online.
