Reliance Jio will announce the detailed tariff of its broadband plans later on in the day but Reliance Industries Ltd chairman had already announced that monthly plans will begin from 700 and go up to 10,000 for heavy-duty users. Those in the 700 broadband plan will enjoy internet speeds at the rate of 100 Mbps. As you move up the price ladder, the speed will also increase and go up to 1 Gbps.
