Jio AirFiber is set to tap into a massive untapped market of over 200 million Indian households. Jio AirFiber is expected to be competitively priced, estimated at around ₹6,000, possibly slightly higher due to the inclusion of a portable device unit.
Jio AirFiber distinguishes itself from Jio Fiber by utilising 5G technology to provide high-speed internet access.
Jio AirFiber is a Fixed Wireless Access solution that delivers high-speed connectivity of up to 1 Gbps to both homes and offices. It accommodates multiple devices, including smartphones, PCs, tablets, smart TVs, and set-top boxes, all while maintaining top-notch internet speed.

While Jio Fiber relies on wired fiber optic cables, Jio AirFiber takes a wireless approach, establishing direct connections between homes and offices through wireless signals. This eliminates the need for fiber cables and depends on clear line-of-sight communication with Jio towers. Jio AirFiber offers speeds of up to 1.5 Gbps, exceeding the 1 Gbps speed of Jio Fiber. However, the actual speed of Jio AirFiber can vary based on proximity to the nearest tower.
One key advantage of Jio AirFiber is its extensive coverage potential, as it doesn’t rely on physical infrastructure limitations like Jio Fiber. It’s designed to be a user-friendly plug-and-play solution.
