JioFiber set-top box and live television services for newand existing customers may begin by December 2019 onwards. Furthermore, all theJioFiber plans and offers such as Free 4K television sets as well as otherdevices being provided along with Jio Forever Annual Plans may also come intoplay around the same time. Although there is no official word from Reliance Jioon this matter, user feedback seems to suggest the new development.
Existing and new users who are asking for the installation of the JioFiber set-top box are apparently being told by JioFiber installation technicians that set-top boxes could be available by the end of the year. "At first they told us August they may start providing set-top box. Now they are telling us in December they may start giving the same. One technician also told us the plans we chose may start getting applied around Dhirubhai Ambani's birthday," said a user from Delhi to DataQuest who wishes to maintain anonymity. The same was confirmed by their neighbors who opted for the services as their society was chosen by Reliance Jio to install the fiber optic cables.
The same has been conveyed by a few users on social media as well. "I am from Alwar, Rajasthan and recently paid Rs 2500 for JioFiber connection. The person said to make connections in 2-4 days but only for internet and landline services. He said that the free 4kTV offer and the set-top box can be availed only in December. Is it OK? Check (SIC)," questions a user Meena Gupta to JioCare on Twitter. The query has not elicited a response from Reliance Jio so far.
"They are not clear about it, it may happen in a week or it may take a few months. My sales representative said, they expect at least before December, but still, he is not sure," says @iVenpu a blogger from Bengaluru. However, this development cannot be confirmed until Reliance Jio makes an official announcement.
