  1. This was really helpful. I’ve been trying to get a Jio Fiber connection but it’s unfortunately not available in my locality, i.e., in Akashinagar, Bamunimaidan. Have tried registering and contacting them multiple times but sadly it’s been of no use. Hopefully I will get a Fiber connection soon.
