It is said that the data top-ups will be available for free to subscribers and each top-up will add 40GB of data to the account. However, it doesn’t mention how many top-ups will be provided to each subscriber in a month. An earlier report claimed that Jio is testing a model in which lets subscribers use top-ups 25 times in a month to avail a total of 1.1TB of free data in the period. The preview offer was spotted online last year, but the company hasn’t yet confirmed its development through an official channel.
All the initial Jio GigaFiber subscribers are said to be entitled to the preview offer. Also, considering the historical record of Jio, the offer could be extended after the three-month limit.
While broadband access through the preview offer is likely to be available for free to subscribers, Reliance Jio will charge a security deposit of Rs. 4,500 under which it is said to offer an ONT (Optical Network Terminal) and additional services such as Jio GigaTV and smart home solutions. The deposit could be of refundable nature, and the amount paid is likely to be refunded at the time of discontinuing the Jio GigaFiber service by returning back the installed devices in a working condition.
