Is affordable JioFiber the catalyst to increasing smart TV sales?

India is one of the fastest-growing smartphone markets, but with the introduction of affordable data services with the launch of Reliance JioFiber broadband services, smart TVs have emerged as a new hot-selling category on ecommerce.

With the launch of JioFiber, the broadband tariffs have dropped immensely across the country. JioFiberhas even had a similar impact on Reliance Jio when it revolutionized mobile data in the Indian market. It is expected to push the OTT & digital content consumption on TV screens, boosting the smart TVs economy.
