What is BSNL’s Fixed Mobile Telephony (FMT) service ?
The latest Limited Fixed Mobile Telephony (LFMT) service is different from the
contentious Fixed Mobile Telephony service it announced last year but
was forced to put on hold following a vehement opposition from cellular operators.
BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Anupam Shrivastava told – “The earlier service allowed customers on roaming in India and overseas to connect their landlines through mobile and make calls through them. But this service is restricted within the home premises.”
service (VoIP app) will virtually turns mobiles into cordless phone
working in sync with landlines within home premises. To avail the
service, customers will need BSNL’s broadband
connectivity and a smartphone / tablet.
“With BSNL Light Fixed Mobile Telephony (LFMT) customers can avail the attractive landline tariffs of BSNL like free calls on Sundays and Unlimited Night time calling etc” – BSNL CMD added.
Customers may download the app and with BSNL Broadband WiFi connectivity, customer can receive and also be able to make outgoing calls on his smartphone. This service is in no way linked with mobile operator service or customer SIM in mobile handset. The limited FMT service can be availed as add-on service and a separate telephone number will be provided to customer to avail this service. All other charges for Limited FMT services will be as applicable for basic landline service.
