Jio Fiber now reducing broadband speed to 1Mbps once user exhausts data limit

Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd has made a revision to its terms and conditions and the telecom giant’s Jio Fiber broadband services would now restrict the data speed to 1Mbps once the user crosses the commercial data use policy of 3.3TB, the media has reported. The new Jio Fiber plans include those worth Rs 399, Rs 699, Rs 999 and Rs 1,299 and these originally said to offer data access to all users. However, Jio Fiber is said to have a commercial use policy to restrict speeds once its users cross usage of 3.3TB or 3,300GB data.

According to a report in Telecom Talk, Reliance Jio has mentioned about its revised terms and conditions and that the users of Jio Fiber would be limited to data speed of 1Mbps upon exhausting the allotted data quota. This data cap usage is also offered by Airtel.

Meanwhile, earlier this month, after announcing new Jio Fiber tariff plans, Reliance Jio began informing its existing users that they will get an upgrade with unlimited internet at 100Mbps speed on September 5. The company is not providing a new plan to existing Jio Fiber users and giving them a free trial of the new Jio Fiber plans on their current plan. Once the trial ends, Jio Fiber users can subscribe to any of the new plans that were launched last week.

For those unaware, the Jio Fiber 30-day free trial is applicable for all new customers. The benefits of the trial include 150mbps truly unlimited internet and 4K set-top box with free access to 10 paid streaming services like Amazon, Disney+ Hotstar, Netflix, etc. There will be a free voice calling benefits as well, and if you don’t like the Jio Fiber service after the trial, the company says it will take it back without any questions.
