Reliance is gearing up to host its 42nd Annual General Meeting (AGM) on August 12, which is tomorrow. The company’s 42nd AGM will kick off at 11:00AM on Monday. You can also catch the event online as Reliance will be live streaming the event on its YouTube, Twitter and Facebook account. At the event, Reliance is expected to announce the commercial launch of its broadband service, JioGigaFiber.
Moreover, Reliance could also launch a new feature phone, called JioPhone 3.

It will bring FTTH (fiber to the home), where users will get high-speed broadband, live TV channels and a telephone connection. Since then, it has been running a number of trials with free public beta and preview offers.
