The latest news about the expansion of the JioFiber comes from the twitter handle of JioCare.

What is JioFiber?
For starters, JioFiber is the premier home broadband service of Reliance Jio. It is purely based on Fiber optics and offers download speeds ranging from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps. JioFiber is currently going through its testing phase in India.
What is JioFiber Preview Offer?
It is exactly the same as the Jio Preview Offer which rolled out last year. The JioFiber Preview Offer is exclusively for the early adopters or trial users of JioFiber. It comes with three months of free unlimited broadband usage. With up to 100 Mbps download speeds, the FUP limit of the JioFiber Preview Offer is set at 100 GB per month. If you cross the limit, your internet speed will drop to 1 Mbps.
The JioFiber Preview Offer also packs a free subscription to JioTV, JioCinema, JioMusic, JioNews, as well as 5 GB of JioCloud storage. In order to get the offer, you need to pay a security amount of Rs. 4,500. According to Reliance Jio, this amount is fully refundable if you don’t wish to continue using JioFiber after three months of free usage.
Every user will get a dual-band Wi-Fi router from Reliance Jio. It is a smart router through which you shall be able to actively monitor the Wi-Fi connectivity even when you are out of the city. However, you need to return this router if you refrain from being a JioFiber user after the initial three months of promotional usage. Failing to do so will lock up your Rs. 4,500.
