While paying my monthly subscription to my cablewallah today... asked him what is new....

He also has Hathway.... told me Jio is coming up with a plan @1000/-... which includes 50Mbps unltd + 1 set top box + unltd voice calling. Add on STB can be availed @599.
Can you them of they are planning on increased sppeed? 50mbps is too low for a metro city.

Also, What about the cable? Are they going to make it ftth or is it going to be docsis normal tv cable wire only?

He is just a LCO of many ISP's, he can not tell them..... just selling their service.

Most probably it will be FTTN/ FTTH..... as with the other ISP's i.e. I am using Tripleplay and the junction box on the pole outside my house has fibre as input and ethernet cable as output.....

Jio will have an android TV box.

Yeah, When you said "CableWallah" I understood what you meant. It's that they might reveal something more which I have asked for.

Anyways, Hathway and DEN both runs on Coaxial Cable which is Old TV Thick Cable Wire (Technology Name: DOCSIS 3.0).

By the way, If your ISP is TriplePlay. How come he knows about the Hathway and JIO thing and their plans which you have told before?

Apart from the acquisition deal, it's quite uncommon that anyone outside would know all that.

Basically, He also has Hathway.... I am not getting this part.

He has around 7-12 ISP's Excitel, Hathaway, TriplePlay and so many others....
Since he had hathaway, so after acquisition by Jio, he will now be selling Jio also....

Pretty sure within 5-6 years, there will not be any alternatives left in any of telecom/broadband/content delivery fields.
