Reliance announces the JioPhone 2 and Jio GigaFiber FTTH service

After launching JioPhone past year that garnered 250 million users, Reliance has announced that it will make available JioPhone 2 starting August 15 at an introductory price of only Rs 2,999.

In addition to this, the company also announced the JioPhone 2. Since Jio is a greenfield player and has a complete ecosystem offering multiple services like Jio health/education, Jio TV, 3D VR streaming and smart home accessories, it will have an edge against the current broadband services providers.

After revolutionising the telecom sector, Reliance Jio has now come up with Jio GigaFiber which was earlier known as Jio Fiber.

After announcing the launch of JioGigaFiber, Ambani stepped aside for a while to let his daughter Isha, son Akash and Reliance Jio Director Kiran Thomas address the audience. The new JioPhone 2, however, features a QWERTY keypad with a 4-way navigation key, similar to older BlackBerry handsets. Also, voice usage on the network has increased from 250 crore minutes to 530 crore minutes per day.
