How is Jio AirFiber different from Jio Fiber?
Jio AirFiber and Jio Fiber are standalone broadband services from Reliance Jio that differ in terms of technology, speed, coverage, installation and cost. For example, Jio Fiber uses fiber optic cables for wider coverage, but these are not available everywhere in the country. On the other hand, the upcoming Jio AirFiber is a wireless broadband network that uses point-to-point radio links to connect homes and workplaces to Jio through a direct signal. It is not limited by fiber cables, it depends on visibility in Jio towers.
