Anybody using bsnl lfmt( limited fixed mobile telephony) service. Is the service worth to activate for my ftth connection. Thanks in advance.


Why don’t you try it. All BSNL ADSL and FTTH customers can use this service for free.


Bsnl 4g/2g indoor coverage is weak in my home though bts is located within 200 mtrs distance. So I wish to activate the lfmt service. That’s why I had asked. If you are using the service kindly guide how to activate the service and how does it works. Today I have visited to my area (Trichy) BSNL CSC they said currently no such service is available for broadband users. As per information available in tamil nadu circle website our area exchange has upgraded with next generation network.
