First of all, your questions can be answered at one place only.
Ans 1 This box is manufactured in 2017, So its not that they just developed it and cheaped out on components. So it is possible that this was in works all along. Moreover from now onwards every new connection will get this box only so forget the old one. Performance is yet to be tested.

Ans 2 When you pay SD for any item, there is no time limit for you to get back SD.

Ans 3 Since Jio is charging a SD, this means you are just renting out the ONT from them so they will repair or replace till you are a subscriber.

Ans 4 Your old handset works perfectly. I am currently using an Airtel handset.

Ans 5 All calls within india are available to be made.

Ans 6 to 11. This product is only being used by top Jio employees. It will be an IPTV service. You can think of better PQ but the channels and other aspects will remain same as JioTV. All data consumed will be local, So it will not be counted against your data limit. Fiber is rated upto a capacity of more than a Gbps so watching TV will not be affecting your internet experience.

MyJio app says 100GB/day but plan says 100GB/30 days
Q(i) Any information about when Jio GigaFiber officially launch and when preview offer will end?
Are these rumours true that Jio GigaFiber preview offer will remain free for next 1 year?

Q(ii). Are you able to use jio landline service. How is the voice quality and are you able to call any mobile network?

Q(iii) Can I port my bsnl landline number to Jio landline?

Q(iv) If there will any issue related to service, internet speed or any queries, to whom I will need to contact?
Jio Customer care agents have no information about GigaFiber. There is a GigaFiber number 1800 896 9999 but not working. No option to connect with agent.

There is a reason why they are called rumours. I am not a Jio employee. Preview offer will be over once the services are launched commercially. I am using this connection for more than 2 yrs now.
You also need to read the forum because many questions are repetitive. I am able to use LL services and calls to all network works. Voice quality is good as VoIP.
You cannot port or choose number to LL yet. In future I do not know if it will be available. (The number can still be choosen using a trick which will not be disclosed.)
Gigafiber number works.
And all these questions are worthless if your area is not ready for action.

I have CONFIRMED answers to some of your questions, so I'll try to answer them:-

1. The new black coloured device that you can see in those pics doesn't support 5GHz WiFi band, it runs on 2.4GHz WiFi band only. In other words, it is NOT a dual band WiFi router, but a single band one. Other than that, all the features are same.
P.S.- I heard some users complain about the WiFi signal range of the black coloured device.

2. As of now, Jio hasn't mentioned any time limit. So basically that means, as long as you have a working device in one piece, you're eligible for a full refund.

3. (Not sure)

4. You can use your old device. The port, where you connect your landline phone, is known as POTS port for a reason - Plain Old Telephone Service. Also, it supports caller ID enabled basic landline sets too.

5. Any network, any location in India.

6. You'll need a Cat 6 ethernet cable to connect your router with your STB.

7. (Not sure) I don't think so. Basically, you'll get exactly all those channels that you get now on the JioTV app.

8. (Not sure) Like I said, it will offer exactly what you get on JioTV app. Some channels can be rewinded, some can't be rewinded. Also, the STB supports external USB device, so you can connect your pendrive and record your favourite show/movie.

9. ABSOLUTELY NOT. Optic Fibre cables are capable of delivering speeds upto 10Gbps, and your Jio router is capable of delivering upto 1Gbps. Even if you download at 100Mbps, watch FHD channels and call on the landline phone, all at the same time, you won't face any disruption or lagging anywhere.

10. Like I said before, they won't get affected in any way.

11. (Not sure) Should not.

You are wrong on your first answer itself. It's better to keep quite rather than spreading misinformation.
