Free voice calls, free HD TV: Reliance Jio Fiber casts net wide to capture market
Mumbai, August 12

Posted at: Aug 12, 2019, 12:51 PM; last updated: Aug 12, 2019, 7:20 PM (IST)

Billionaire Mukesh Ambani on Monday announced the roll-out of 'Jio Fiber' from September 5, promising free voice calls for life from landlines, 100 mbps minimum broadband speed at subscription starting from Rs 700 a month and free HD TV set on a commitment to an annual plan.

Speaking at the 42nd Annual General Meeting (AGM), Reliance Industries' Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani said Jio will also offer unlimited international calling pack from its landlines to the US and Canada at Rs 500 a month, and that default tariff plans will be one-fifth to one-tenth of existing market tariffs.

"Voice calls from home to any Indian operator—mobile or fixed—will be absolutely free forever. On fixed-line international voice calling, we are today ending the era of high international calling rates on landline by announcing the lowest fixed line rates for international calling," he said.

Jio Fiber services would be available on a commercial basis from September 5.

"The average fixed-line download speed in the US, which is the most developed economy, is around 90 Mbps. In India even the most basic Jio Fiber plan starts with 100 Mbps speed and we have plans all the way up to 1 Gbps or 1000 Mbps," he said adding that this would improve the quality of fixed-line data in India.

Declaring that the plans will come at less than one-tenth of global rates, Ambani said Jio Fiber plans will be priced between Rs 700 to Rs 10,000 per month "to suit every budget".

The plans will come bundled with subscriptions to most leading premium ‘Over The Top’ (OTT) applications.

"Also, for the first time in India, we are introducing a disruptive concept for watching new movies. Premium Jio Fiber customers will be able to watch movies in their living rooms the same day these movies are released in theatres," he said.

This service—Jio First Day First Show— will be launched in mid-2020.

Over the last two years, the RIL AGMs have been a platform to showcase new and upcoming initiatives of the Group. Last year, speaking at the company's 41st AGM, Ambani had said the Jio Giga Fiber Service will provide ultra-high definition entertainment on TV, voice activated assistance, virtual reality gaming and digital shopping as well as smart home solutions.

It was widely-expected that he would spell out the details of the commercial roll-out of Jio Giga Fiber at Monday's AGM.

Jio has been scaling up Jio Giga Fibre infrastructure in various cities over the last few months, and half a million homes have already been given access to it on a trial basis.

Ambani said that since its announcement last year, Jio received over 15 million registrations from nearly 1,600 towns.

"And based on these registrations, we have drawn up a plan to reach 20 million residences and 15 million business establishments in these 1,600 towns," Ambani said.

The company will also offer special mobility service for Jio Fiber users to deliver a platinum-grade service and product experience.

Jio Postpaid Plus will offer priority SIM-setup service at home. It would also provide data and voice connectivity across all devices, both at home and outside, along with family plans and international roaming at a fraction of a cost.

"The experience of Jio Fiber and Jio Set Top Box really comes to life when combined with an LED TV. So, Jio Fiber customers who opt for our annual plans which we call Jio Forever plans, will get an HD or 4K LED TV and a 4K set top box absolutely free," he said.

Ambani said that Jio, which has amassed over 340 million mobile subscribers in less than three years, is now ready to fire four new growth engines including Internet of Things (IoT) for the entire country, home and enterprise broadband services as well as broadband for SMEs.

Revenue from each of these engines will flow in from this fiscal itself.

The investment cycle of Reliance Jio is complete, and about Rs 3.5 lakh crore has been invested in its digital network, he said.

Ambani said that India was "data dark" before the entry of Jio, and its launch has made India "data-shining bright".

"The potential for growth is immense and half a billion customers, is now I believe well within our reach," he said. The investment cycle of Jio is now complete, and only marginal investments would be needed in areas to grow capacity, he said adding that this gives the company strong operational leverage and superior return on investments for years to come.

Jio's IoT platform will be commercially available starting January 1, 2020.

"Jio aims to connect at least 1 billion of these (connected devices) on Jio's IoT platform. This translates into a Rs 20,000-crore per year revenue opportunity for Jio," he said.

The company said it has received strong interest from strategic and financial investors for its consumer businesses—Jio and Reliance Retail.

"We will induct leading global partners in these businesses in the next few quarters, and move towards listing of both these companies within the next five years," he pointed out.

Day in the Life of an Average Japanese Salaryman in Tokyo


Paolo fromTOKYO

Published on Jul 6, 2019

Japanese work day at a Japanese office for an average Japanese salaryman in a Tokyo office. Living in Japan and working in Japan is quite a unique experience. This is a day in the life of Japanese worker, Makoto, 27 years old who lives in a Tokyo 3-story house with his family. This Tokyo salaryman works in a small Tokyo office, but spends many of his Japan working hours traveling from client to client on the Tokyo trains. Makoto works for a company called Mobal and as many Japanese salarymen, he entered the company straight from a Japanese University and he plans to spend his entire salaryman career at the same company. That is the life in Japan for a salaryman. We take a look inside what it's like to work in a small Tokyo office as well as to visit clients throughout Tokyo city area. His job experiences maybe unique to his company, but fundamentally he is very much an average salaryman. He commutes by train everyday to get to work and has to ride his mama-chari bike to get to the train station from his home. This Tokyo salaryman life has him arriving to work early and working late. As a salaryman, Makoto receives a standard salary every month for all the long work hours. The Japanese office is also configured so his boss' desk is right in front of him, quite a Japanese style office working environment. This very average Japanese work day and work lifestyle showcases a true day in Japan work life.
