Eyeing the market share captured by Amazon with its gadgets, Ambani rolled out the GigaFiber FTTH broadband service that will soon be launched in 1100 cities across the country. Currently, the fiber cable service reaches reaches only up to the building and not directly into homes because of which users get slow internet speed. However, a lot depends on pricing and availability of the service. With Reliance going with Jio GigaFibers, it is expected to give a tough competition to world leader Amazon's echo and other home appliances.
