Mukesh Ambani announces high-speed broadband, Jio Phone 2 with WhatsApp, FB

At the event, the company also unveiled the Jio Phone 2, which will be priced at Rs 2,999 and hit the market on August 15. The company also announced a second generation device labelled the JioPhone 2 at the event.

The company has rolled out a trial service offering of unlimited internet at 100 mbps for 90 days along with a monthly data quota of 100 GB for a security deposit of Rs 4,500 for the Optical Network Termination (ONT) device.

Reliance Industries Chairman further stated that Reliance is India's largest payer of Goods and Services Tax (GST), Excise and Customs Duty, and Income Tax in the private sector. It also comes with built-in Google Assistant for using voice commands in English and Hindi.

While explaining the broadband for large enterprises, Ambani said that fixed-line broadband will mean having the ability to compete in the global marketplace, using digital tools and techniques that are powering the fourth industrial revolution.

Earlier in the day, Mukesh also announced the launch of fixed-line broadband services Jio GigaFiber.

Reliance previous year launched the JioPhone, which allowed digital payments and was effectively free: buyers could get a device for a refundable fee of 1,500 rupees.

Trump, Putin Will Discuss Russian Election Meddling
On " Meet the Press ", Graham said he supports the meeting but hopes Trump will come out strongly against Russia's actions. Graham continued: "I'm concerned when the president tweets that Russian Federation denies they meddled in our elections".

In the world of Netflix, all this will undoubtedly cause major disruption in the not-so-flexible direct-to-home and cable TV markets and not just the fixed line broadband segment.

Meanwhile, Jio customers have been expecting for an upgraded version of existing JioPhone with an integration of sought-after apps like Facebook, WhatsApp, and YouTube.

JioPhone has been availed by more than 25 million users in India. The effort will involve the group's Reliance Retail Ltd and Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd businesses, he said.

Jio Giga Fiber connectivity will be on offer for homes, merchants, small and medium enterprises and large enterprises simultaneously across 1,100 cities in the country. However, the Jio Phone platform does not have access to some of the most widely used apps in India.

Consumers can start registering for JioGigaFiber through both MyJio and Jio.com starting August 15. Ending the era of mbps, Jip Gigafiber will bring high-speed internet via FTTH network with seep up to 1gbps.

Reliance Jio will also soon detail a broader smart home platform which will include a handful of home products like surveillance cameras, connected speakers, GigaTV, smart plugs, thermostats, and more. "They can purchase our Jiophone2 at an introductory price of only Rs 2,999".
