Jio would provide free connectivity and cloud infrastructure to start-ups, Ambani said, adding the company would offer a "bundle of connectivity, productivity and automation tools" to micro, small and medium business for as little as 1,500 rupees ($21.05) a month. However, he did mention that there will be plans up to 1Gbps as well.

Jio's also making global calling cheaper by setting the default tariffs to one tenth of the industry average and, for U.S. and Canada exclusively, users can purchase unlimited calling at ₹500. While Mr. Ambani did not announce any FUP restrictions (Fair Usage Policy), Jio's plans usually have promised speeds up to a generous limit, and then unlimited data beyond that at throttled speeds. There were also announcements made regarding a "zero latency gaming platform" along with a stage demo through the 4K set-top box that has support for most gaming controllers and will support gameplay in 4K.

In addition to broadband and fixed-line access, Jio Fiber customers will get access to Jio Postpaid Plus plans, which include a priority SIM-setup service at home.

Ambani also plans on launching Jio's own IoT network to connect 1 billion devices across India.

According to Ambani, Jio's customer base has crossed 340 Mn users and is growing at the rate of 10 Mn new customers every month.

The 10-year comprehensive commitment combines the world-class capabilities of both companies to offer a detailed set of solutions comprising connectivity, computing, storage solutions, and other technology services for Indian businesses.

This Set-Top Box can host console games such as Federation Internationale de Football Association 2019 and can pair with all popular controllers.

Jio finally launched the JioFiber broadband service in in India on Monday, August 12. Moreover, Reliance Jio is working with leading game publishers, including Gameloft, Tencent, and Microsoft.

The big highlight, however, came later when the Jiofiber Welcome Offer was announced by RIl Chairman Mukesh Ambani. The executives majorly showcased three use cases, namely shopping, education, and entertainment.

Microsoft has announced a long-term alliance with Jio to accelerate India's digital transformation. The Jio HoloBoard Mixed Reality headset is expected on sale shortly. It is touted to be available for purchase in the coming future with an "extremely affordable price".

The group's billionaire chairman, Mukesh Ambani, also unveiled plans to launch cut-price home internet services across the country next month, threatening to disrupt the telecommunications market with offers of free voice calls for life, television and movie streaming, and even TV sets to go with some subscription plans.

"Premium Jio Fiber customers will be able to watch movies in their living rooms the same day these movies released in theatres", said Ambani during his presentation.

Indian mobile network operator firm Reliance Jio Infocomm - owned by Asia's richest person, Mukesh Ambani - is turning to blockchain technology.
