Normally there are black colour Jio GigaFiber fiber optics wires on poles on every streets and roads. But I have also see some dark orange colour wires (same size or may be few millimetres extra thick compared to black wires) in my area over poles in few large size street roads along with normal black Jio GigaFiber wires. I am not 100% sure but I think these orange wires are also from Jio because there is no other private company of fiber internet like airtel etc. I tried to trace these orange wires and I find that these wires are connected to nearby mobile towers and may be those mobile towers are also Jio. But I also remember that few days ago, I talk with Jio GigaFiber installation team and they said all black colour Jio GigaFiber wires comes from nearby Jio Central office (fiber backhaul) of this area but that time I forgot to ask about orange wires.

1. Are these orange wires also in your locality?
2. So, Is internet comes from nearby jio mobile towers to Jio GigaFiber or it is comes from nearby backhaul building or both?
Orange cable that you see is an armoured cables. I have one near my house. They had placed it because of shifting of OLT to a different location. Otherwise all other infrastructure is underground.
But why it is connected with mobile towers?
(Note:- It is not very thick. It is almost same as normal black pole wire of Jio GigaFiber. It is laid over pole to pole like black Jio GigaFiber wires.)
May be Jio is planning and preparing infrastructure for 5G. May be these orange wires on poles will be use for small Pico cells on electric poles that's why it is connected with mobile towers. It's just a guess.
@undercover what you think?

what should be done about connecting ONT to GigaTV box? What's the best and convenient way to do that? Because my TV is on a different floor altogether.

Although Jio hasn't started its services here, they are almost ready to launch. So It's better to plan in advance.

^ Ready to launch? They gave you any time-line? @Shubham

You can have the Cat 6 going from the Router to the TV Box I believe (if you are not so much worried about the decor).

@ajgamer Yeah I have been in contact with 2 people from local jio office they are saying if everything goes to plan we can expect services to start by mid-June.

keeping the router near the tv is not advisable, right?

Man, it will be a very long cable then. haha

^ Take anything they say with a grain of salt. Because, I've been listening the same for a good time now. 1 months turns into 1 year, you never know with Jio. They have been on a delaying spree.

Not sure, why keeping router near TV is not advisable.

But, if you want to enjoy speeds? Ethernet is the solution.

I have Ethernet running (not visible though if you don't notice them very carefully) as I don't use WiFis.

I have connected my Multiple Floors via. Ethernet only.

Ethernet is life and that too CAT 6. Whole local network is 1Gbps.

Quality Routers (UBNT and Asus) and Quality Cat 6 (Amazon Basic and D-Link Genuine).

I don't have high hopes on him after his Aadhar Controversy. Honestly, He made a joke on himself. TRAI is making some confusing decisions and policies. I hate Thier recent Television channel mandate to the core.
