Mumbai: Reliance Jio is gearing up to introduce an innovative wireless internet service designed for homes and offices, named Jio AirFiber. During the 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM) held today, Mukesh Ambani, the Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries, made the announcement that Jio AirFiber would make its debut in India on Tuesday, September 19th, 2023, coinciding with the Ganesh Chaturthi festival.
The inception of Jio AirFiber was initially unveiled during the company’s 45th AGM last year. The focus of the service is on providing users with wireless internet speeds akin to fiber-optic connections. This technology will enable users to seamlessly engage in various high-bandwidth activities with minimal latency, such as video streaming, gaming, and video conferencing.

Mukesh Ambani also highlighted that Jio’s mobile network is now witnessing a per-user per month data consumption of 25 GB. Jio’s telecom services were introduced seven years ago. As for Jio’s 5G services, Ambani noted that they are currently accessible across 96% of census towns and are on track to achieve nationwide coverage by December 2023, as originally planned. Notably, Jio’s customer base has now crossed the milestone of 45 crore.
Significantly, India’s telecom service providers commenced offering high-speed 5G services in October 2022. Compared to 3G and 4G, 5G offers remarkably low latency, enhancing user experiences across various sectors. Low latency signifies the efficiency of processing a substantial volume of data messages with minimal delay.
