Reliance Jio launches Jio SpaceFiber – India’s first satellite-based GigaFiber internet service

At the India Mobile Congress 2023 in New Delhi, Reliance Jio showcased India’s first satellite-based GigaFiber service, called Jio SpaceFiber, in the presence of PM Narendra Modi. The new Jio SpaceFiber service aims to provide high-speed broadband services to previously inaccessible geographical areas of India.

This service will be available across the country at highly affordable prices. Currently, Jio SpaceFiber is now available in four most remote locations in India – Gir Gujarat, Korba Chhattisgarh, Nabarangpur Odisha and ONGC-Jorhat Assam.

“Jio has enabled millions of homes and businesses in India to experience broadband internet for the first time. With JioSpaceFiber, we expand our reach to cover millions of yet-to-be-connected people. JioSpaceFiber connects everyone, every space, will allow India to fully participate in the new digital society with gigabit access to online government, education, health and entertainment services,” said Akash Ambani, chairman of Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd.

Jio already provides high-speed broadband fixed line and wireless services to more than 450 million Indian consumers. To accelerate digital inclusivity for every household in India, Jio has added JioSpaceFiber to its flagship lineup of broadband services, JioFiber and JioAirFiber.

With Jio, consumers and businesses have unprecedented access to reliable, low latency and high-speed internet and entertainment services, regardless of location. The satellite network will also support additional capacity for mobile backhaul, thereby increasing the availability and scale of Jio True5G in remote parts of the country.

Jio is partnering with SES to access the world’s latest Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite technology, the only MEO constellation capable of providing truly unique gigabit, fiber-like services from space.

With Jio having access to a combination of SES’s O3b and new O3b mPOWER satellites, it is the only company offering game-changing technology that can deliver scalable and affordable broadband across India with guaranteed reliability and service flexibility levels. Which is the first time.
