20 May 2014

Indonesian telecoms operator PT Indosat has completed its network modernisation programme in several regions of the country and is now offering customers internet access speeds of up to 42Mbps in Jabodetabek, Bandung (West Java), Sukabumi (also in West Java), Semarang (Central Java), Yogyakarta (also in Central Java), Surabaya (East Java) and Bali. The Jakarta Post quotes Indosat director Alexander Rusli as saying that the modernisation of its internet service capabilities forms part of endeavours to enhance the quality of data service to meet increasing demand from end users. Indosat started its network modernisation project in 2012, and now plans to turn its attention to enhancing mobile broadband data speeds in Indonesia’s eastern regions. The carrier’s dual-carrier (DC)-HSPA+ service costs IDR300,000 (USD26.4) per 30-day billing period for 8GB of data downloads, while a pre-paid ‘Mentari’ card costs IDR36,000 for a 3GB quota.
