Thread: Telkom LIT Experiences?

  1. #1

    Question Telkom LIT Experiences?

    I wanna get Telkom's LIT streaming service soon , and I wanted to know if anyone can share their experiences with it?

    It's a great deal for me personally. But I don't really trust Telkom.
    (I know all the "Fair Usage" and video quality limit stuff btw)

    From what i gather you need to activate the service on the telkom webportal if its already not enabled.. works at 360p for video, not sure for Audio quality.. If you want higher quality video, you have to disable the service and that uses data..

    Its pretty much an awesome deal considering its just a perk and not something you paying extra for

    From the first response I gather these is a confusion. There are two separate things:

    1. Telkom LIT (zero-rated streaming service) available only on FreeMe 2GB/5GB package or above. According to T&C it is for use on smartphones, no tethering allowed.

    2. Telkom LIT TV box. It is a powerful 4K device, it would be a waste to use for streaming 360p content. It is available on 50GB/100GB SmartBroadband packages (currently giving double data). I didn't receive any feedback whether LIT service can be used on these or similar packages.
