“Have started using JioFiber since the pandemic and have been completely happy with the service. The installation was fast and started working within 45 mins of registering the lead. The speeds are good enough to accomodate 8-10 parallel devices connected and ping speeds are better than the previous broadband I used. The router is dual band and the 5Ghz band works good with the smart TV playing OTT content seamlessly without buffering. Cons: Not available everywhere in India.” – satyapatel1212
“Good speed in Pune and good service. I am using it for last 4 years and the connection is reliable with proper care. Only issue is house shifting. It is easier to close the existing connecting and get a new one than getting connection relocated” – vivek235u92
