New JioFiber Plans Not Truly Unlimited: What’s The Catch?
As any other telecom broadband service in the country as Airtel XStream or TataSky Broadband, the new JioFiber plans also have a bandwidth limit. The JioFiber new plans start at Rs 399 a month at 30Mbps download / upload speeds. While the company says the new Jio broadband plans are unlimited in nature, apparently they are not.

The new JioFiber unlimited broadband plans start at Rs 399 and go upto Rs 1,499 a month alongside additional OTT benefits.
If we actually go by the phrase ‘unlimited broadband plans’, they are actually not truly unlimited. If you go to the terms and conditions page, the first point clarifies that the data limit usage on new JioFiber plans are capped at 3,300GB a month. Also unused data won’t be rolled over to the next month.
On the brighter side, still that’s a lot of data to be consumed. You get 100GB a day on an average to be used, and that’s more than enough for a standard household even if used to stream different OTT services on TV apart from using data for mobile, laptop and other connected services.
New JioFiber Plans Don’t Include GST, Extra Charges Applicable
The new JioFiber plans don’t include the GST levied on broadband services. The new JioFiber tariffs mentioned are exclusive of Goods and Service Tax (GST). So additional GST has to be paid on the base price. The one month service denotes 30 days of service.

All the latest JioFiber plans are exclusive of GST. 18 percent GST will be charged on the base price of the JioFiber plans. For example, the base 100Mbps JioFiber plan priced at Rs 699 will finally be billed Rs 826 (approximately) a month including 18 percent GST.
