Jio Fiber Free WiFi & Broadband Plans & Trial Offers
Reliance Jio is one of the top broadband providers in the country, with affordable plans and high speed packages. The latest Jio Fiber packages start at Rs. 399, and the telecom provider stated that four of their most affordable packages give really unlimited Internet to all consumers.
However, with the increasing demand and internet consumption, along with affordable packages, Jio has launched a 30-day free trial for its JioFiber internet service in India. The 'no-strings-attached' free trial is intended for new consumers across the country and includes a variety of benefits.
In this article, we’ve provided all the information related to Jio’s new offer and how you can apply for JioFiber’s free 1-month trial package.
WiFi is supported by Jio Home Gateway. However, if you have chosen a JioFiber Home Gateway that does not support WiFi, you will need to add your own (supported) WiFi Home Gateway in order to use WiFi.
Understanding JioFiber’s Trial Offer
To entice potential customers, Jio Fiber is offering a 30-day free trial with no strings attached to all new subscribers who registered from September 2021. This free trial will provide customers with up to 150Mbps bandwidth, 4K set-top equipment with a free membership to 10 OTT applications, and free phone calling advantages.
According to Jio, this 30-day trial period is available to all new subscribers, and if the subscriber does not like the service, the telecommunications giant will deactivate the connection without hassles. But, at the beginning of the 30-day period, the customer needs to pay an INR 1,000 installation fee that is non-refundable.
However, consumers who choose for the 4K set-top-box even during the free trial will be required to pay a deposit of INR 2,500, while those that do not go for it will need to pay a deposit of INR 1,500.
Those who pay an INR 2,500 security deposit will get unlimited access to OTT platforms like Disney+ Hotstar, JioCinema, Zee5, Sony Liv, Voot, Alt Balaji, Sun NXT, Shemaroo, Lionsgate Play, as well as Hoichoi and others.
Those that want to continue using JioFiber after the trial time will be able to select from a list of packages commencing from INR 399 to INR 8,499 every month, with speeds varying from 30Mbps to 1Gbps. With broadband rates starting at INR 999 each month, you can get a 4K set-top device and subscription to OTT services.

An Introduction To The New Plans Offered By JioFiber
In terms of new packages, Jio Fiber also will provide a total of 7 monthly options ranging from INR. 399 to INR 8,499. The latest Jio Fiber packages cost INR 399, INR 699, INR. 999, INR 1,499, INR 2,499, INR 3,499, and INR 8,499, respectively. The INR 2,499 and INR 8,499 packages that were also available previously are still available.
The new Jio Fiber Bronze INR 399 monthly package provides customers with "truly unlimited data" at 30Mbps speed as well as unlimited phone call advantages. As previously stated, the "truly unlimited" packages will be subject to a commercial use policy (CUP) with a 3300GB cap.
This CUP is practically the same as FUP but with a different title. Likewise, the INR 699 Jio Fiber Silver monthly package provides Internet speeds of up to 100Mbps as well as unlimited phone services. Neither the INR 399 nor the INR 699 tariffs include any OTT app subscription advantages.
The INR 999 Jio Fiber Gold package includes 150Mbps Internet, unlimited phone calling, as well as a complimentary membership to 11 OTT applications worth INR 1,000. The Jio Fiber Diamond package costs INR 1,499 and includes 300Mbps bandwidth, unlimited phone calls, and unlimited access to 12 OTT applications.
The Jio Fiber Diamond+ plan continues to give 500Mbps Internet, a combined FUP of 4,000GB, unlimited phone calls, and a complimentary membership to the 12 OTT applications mentioned with the Jio Fiber Diamond plan.
The Platinum Jio Fiber package pricing has been cut from INR 3,999 to INR 3,499. The advantages still remain the same, primarily 1Gbps of high-speed internet with a limit of up to 7,500GB. There is also the INR 8,499 Titanium plan, which includes 1Gbps bandwidth, up to 15,000GB of data, free voice calls, and access to 12 streaming platforms.
Jio reaffirms that all plans offer symmetrical upload and download speeds, a significant improvement from the previous 10% upload speed restriction.
With the MyJio App, you can simply check your plan's balance and validity. To access the plan details, validity, and data balance, log in to MyJio App with your JioFiber account.
Even as Jio's home broadband service expands, there's no doubt that the company wants to attract additional users. A 30-day free trial of the service allows potential consumers to virtually test drive Jio's broadband before committing to a purchase.
There’s no doubt that this is a brilliant move from a business that practically began the "freebies" trend in the Indian telecom sector, opening the door for others to follow suit or suffer the repercussions — lower user traction.
