Here's all about Jio GigaFiber Triple Play Plan.

The plan is expected to be offered to regular users when the service would launch commercially.

Reportedly, Jio is currently conducting Ready for Sale (RFS) surveys to identify suitable areas to install its GigaFiber service.
The company officials are reaching out to the authorities of Multiple Dwelling Units like the high-rise societies and Single Dwelling Units such as private homes for the deployment of the service.
However, there is no official timeline regarding the launch of the service at present.
