Reliance Jio GigaFiber could be major disruption in Digital Entertainment Segment

Reliance Jio launch has been one of the biggest changes consumers have witnessed in telecom and mobile internet segment. The consumers received massive data on daily basis in affordable plans. Now, Jio plans to launch Reliance Jio GigaFiber and telecom industry experts are confident that it will disrupt the market once again. At Rs 700 average price point, Jio GigaFiber would be out of range for some of the consumers but those interested in entertainment and movies, would love the offerings from Reliance Jio.

Reliance Group Chairman Mukesh Ambani announced that his company plans to offer value to consumer with strong content packaged along with unmatched consumer service. Mr. Ambani also mentioned that within few months, GigaFiber consumers will be able to enjoy latest movies on the network and the movie releases would coincide with first-day-first-show. This could be a major selling point for people wanting to enjoy latest movies from the comfort of their home. And, this will also mean that whole family can watch movies at home, exactly on the release date.

In an interview with ETNOW, Nitin Soni, Director, Corporates, Fitch Ratings said, “Compared to the mobile market, this fiber broadband market has a lot of headroom to grow. We only have about 5 to 7 million home consumers where addressable population is at least 250 million homes and Bharti Airtel’s subscriber base is only just over 2 million.”

Reliance GigaFiber will soon announce details of the plans the company will be offering. It will be interesting to see the first numbers.

Reliance is also looking at reducing its debt. The company is having a massive debt but as it has been generating enough of profit and cash-flow, it doesn’t concern investors at the moment. However, Mr. Ambani has recently announced his plans to make Reliance debt-free within 18 months. As per market experts, this seems like a herculean task. But, we will see if Mr. Ambani can surprise markets. The company is also in talks with a Saudi fund for stake sale.
