Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited has accomplished a significant milestone by showcasing India’s inaugural satellite-powered giga fiber service. This breakthrough will extend high-speed broadband access to regions in India that were previously unreachable. Unveiled at the India Mobile Congress 2023, Jio’s cutting-edge satellite broadband, named JioSpaceFiber, promises widespread availability at exceptionally competitive rates across India.
In a move to expedite digital inclusion for every Indian household, Jio has introduced JioSpaceFiber as a new addition to its top-tier broadband services, alongside JioFiber and JioAirFiber. This satellite network will not only bolster additional capacity for mobile backhaul but also amplify the accessibility and reach of Jio True5G to even the India’s most remote areas.
Jio is partnering with SES to access the world’s latest in medium earth orbit (MEO) satellite technology, the only MEO constellation capable of delivering unique Gigabit, fiber-like services from space. Jio is the only company that has access to both SES’s O3b and the new O3b mPOWER satellites. This allows them to offer a special kind of technology that gives reliable and flexible internet service all over India.
To demonstrate its power and reach, four of the remotest locations in India – Gir Gujarat, Korba Chattisgarh, Nabrangpur Odissa, ONGC-Jorhat Assam have already been connected with JioSpaceFiber.
“Jio have enabled millions of homes and businesses in India to experience broadband internet for the first time. With JioSpaceFiber, we expand our reach to cover the millions yet to be connected. JioSpaceFiber will allow everyone, everywhere, to fully participate in the new digital society with gigabit access to online government, education, health, and entertainment services.” said Akash Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited.
