The Jio Phone 2 was launched at Rs 2,999 wherein the company also revealed exchange offer for Rs 501. Besides, the company is also speculated to launch the Jio GigaFiber broadband service. Currently GigaFiber users are not being charged. At the event, Reliance is expected to announce the commercial launch of its broadband service, JioGigaFiber.

As of last RIL AGM, Jio had 250 million users whose per month data usage totaled 240 crore GB while voice usage on the network stood at 530 crore minutes per day.

As per the latest data released by TRAI, Vodafone Idea-born previous year from the merger of older operators Vodafone India and Idea Cellular-continues to be the largest operator with 38.75 crore consumers and 33.36 percent market share in the wireless segment as on 31 May 2019. "We are calling this the JioGigaFibre". The Jio Home Triple Play Plan will include access to premium Jio apps as well.

Reliance Jio added 81.80 lakh new subscribers (on a net basis) in May and ended the month with 27.80 percent market share and 32.29 crore subscribers. Meant to be a "platinum grade service", the Jio Postpaid Plus will offer priority SIM set-up service at home, family plans with data sharing, worldwide roaming, and phone upgrades at preferential rates. Jio Preview users have to pay Rs 2,500 for the ONT device (refundable security deposit).

Tariff details of more costly, unlimited plans on GigaFiber are not known yet.

Reliance Jio will offer at least three data plans.

The Jio GigaFiber is already available in some of the tier-1 cities for free of cost.

Jio has also purchased Hathway and Den Networks, two of India's largest cable feed providers, and is now negotiating with the business partners of these two networks to work out an arrangement to provide its GigaFiber services to their customers.
