FROM EDITOR
Majalah ICT readers everywhere. After long
holiday celebrating Eid Mubarak 1436 H, once
again we meet all readers with the latest news
and information from editor’s desk informing
the latest development on Indonesian
information technology, telecommunication
and broadcasting sectors.
Certainly not to forget, in this good
month we also would like to convey our
apology for physical and emotional deeds
as well as news that may have caused
concerns, contain typo or mistyping which
is annoying or issuances that have not met
schedules. We hope that with the training
of the month of Ramadhan this beloved
media can be improved and own spots in the
hearts of all readers.
In this edition, we come up with the main
topic which is on internet tariff in Indonesia.
As we all know internet access has now been
stated as a part of Human Right. Therefore
it is considered as important, when costly
tariff and several areas and circles of life
cannot access, and there is also a chance
that human right violation is committed.
In addition, we also come up with
government plan to continue Palapa Ring
project by the opening of registration to
participate in tender prequalification. In
this edition several beleid designed by
the government related to user privacy
regulation correlated with data center
placement in Indonesia.
Last but not least, there is also loud voice
from civilians who desire the acceleration of
Telecommunication and Broadcasting Law
since it is considered as Pro Foreign and
regulators who deal with telecommunication
and broadcasting is considered as not yet
independent. All of them are presented for
all kind readers.
Happy reading.

rewless aircraft now cannot
be randomly used. The
government through Ministry
of transport has issued Minister
of Transport Regulation (PM) Number
90 of 2015 Regarding Crewless
Aircraft Operational Control. In such
PM the methods on how to use
crewless aircraft or drone in
Indonesian jurisdiction are also
regulated.
Head of Ministry of
Transport Center J.A.
Barata explained such
regulation was issued
to maintain the aviation
operational safety in
Indonesia. Ministry of
Majalah IC T
No. 36• August 2015

Transport
sees
that there
is possible danger
to airplanes when
drones are operated.
Hence, drone
operation cannot
be done randomly. “Therefore the
Minister decided to regulate such
drone operational licensing,” said
Barata. In addition, he said, Ministry of
Transport also stipulated which areas
are crossable by drones and which are
not.
Nevertheless Ministry of Transport
provides special provisions for
crewless aircraft operators for the
interest of the Government. Ministry
of Transport also obliges such
operators to coordinate with aviation
unit which is responsible for air space
for such drone operation.
“In addition, drone flight plan
change must also be conveyed to
Ministry of Transport at least 7
working days prior to
such crewless aircraft
operation. Report on
cancellation of drone
flight must also be
conveyed to Minister
of Transport,” expressed
Barata.
In the drafted regulation, banning
of drone operation is also conducted
in air space that does not obtain
ATC service on the altitude of 150
meters. Nevertheless Ministry of
Transport provides special provisions
for crewless aircraft operators for the
sake of the government for instance
for state area patrol, sea patrol and
weather monitoring.

“Ministry of
Transport allows
drones to be flown
above the altitude of 150
meters, however it obliges such
operators to obtain license to
operate drones and coordinate
with flight navigation unit which
is responsible for air space of such
drone operation,” he explained.
The presence of this new regulation
causes drone ‘pilots’ who join hobby
communities, associations, are
journalists, and have shopping hobby
as well as several observers to feel the
need to meet Minister of Transport
Ignasius Jonan to convey their points
of view. The important view emerging
is related to license in flying drones.
Meeting participants do not decline
such license however they have come
up with notes. One of the regulations
that are still bothering is the obligation
to attach license from the authorized
institution and regional government
when operating drones with cameras.
Conse­quently drone fans will
arrange a special seminar to review
this minister
regulation,
in which
the result is
expected to
provide inputs
for policy
impro­ve­
ment.
MAIN REPORT
Our Internet Tariff Is
Too Expensive
I
nternet tariff difference provided
by Telkomsel in Eastern part of
Indonesia is considered as too
burdensome. As a result, Telkomsel
is brought to petition. Such petition
is voiced with the title “Internet
for the People: Save @Telkomsel @
KemenBUMN @kemkoinfo.”
Such online petition is voiced by
Djali Gafur’s account. According to
Djali, the difference of price between
zone 1 and 12 reaches up to two
folds or 100 percent. It is discovered
that Telkomsel internet tariff is
divided into 12 zones. These zones
are area distribution by Telkomsel,
such as Jakarta, West Java, Central
Java which are included in zone 1.
“2GB data package in zone 1 is only
IDR65,000 while in zone 12 the
price is IDR120,000. We in zone 12
do not have any choice,” said Djali
regretfully.
Djali also protested why Telkomsel
differentiates internet tariff when all
areas are within Indonesia. “We live
under one roof (Indonesia) and we eat
different protein and menu. [They]
said we speak the same language, live
in the same country. Why do we have
different tariff?”
In response to Djali’s complaint,
Vice President Corporate
Communication of Telkomsel, Adita
Irawati said Telkomsel network
arrangement in many regions in
Indonesia has different amount of
fee due to the difference of level of
difficulty and other fee components
required to arrange such location
Majalah IC T

network infrastructure.
“Based on that, Telkomsel applies
data tariff distribution based on zones
in accordance to the amount of fee
required for network arrangement in a
location,” he said.
He added that network arrangement
component, such as 3G or 4G does
not only include BTS development
fee, but also daily maintenance fee, in
which this fee is quite high in Eastern
parts of Indonesia like in Papua.
“This input will be our main concern
in order to provide better service to
the people particularly customers in
the eastern parts of Indonesia,” said
this woman who wears hijab.
The expensive internet data service
tariff offered by Telkomsel bothered
Indonesian Telecommunication
Users Group (IDTUG). From this
International Telecommunication Users
Group (INTUG) affiliated non profit
organization point of view, there is
allegedly dominant position abuse
element in which with monopoly
of service in the Eastern part of
7
Majalah IC T
No. 36• August 2015
Indonesia, Telkomsel offers expensive
tariff to access the internet over the
phone.
This was expressed by Muhammad
Jumadi, Secretary General of IDTUG.
According to him, the expensive
Telkomsel internet tariff is
monopolistic and oligopolistic. “Just
because the coverage is the widest
this company sets monopolistic price
with oligopolistic system to gain large
profit,” he said.
He added that this zone based tariff
was considered as the opposite with
the spirit to drive internet penetration
growth which is still low.
On the other hand the increased
MAIN REPORT
internet penetration will assist
in creating economic growth.
“Telkomsel tariff based on zone at
this time is very expensive,” he said.
For such purpose, said Jumadi,
IDTUG expected the government to
be involved in decreasing operator
tariff that is considered as burdening
customers.
“The government must also
regulate, don’t just stand still.
There should be tariff regulation by
determining certain limit and people
in regions are charged with the same
tariff in order for them to obtain
justice from cellular service. After
all the frequency used by operator
which is owned by the state must be
beneficial for the people at large,”
expressed Jumadi.
BRTI Response
Indonesian Telecommunication
Regulating Body (BRTI) urges
Telkomsel to decrease internet
data service tariff for the eastern
part of Indonesia. BRTI’s urge was
conveyed in relation to the increasing
complaints from users in Eastern part
of Indonesia since the data service
sold tariff by Telkomsel reaches
two fold the tariff sold in Jakarta
and other areas. This is the result
of the findings held after BRTI met
Telkomsel.
“One of the points of the result
of the meeting with Telkomsel is our
request to decrease internet tariff
in East Indonesia. There should not
be too large gap with the western
parts,” said a member of BRTI I Ketut
Prihadi.
Ketut admitted that Indonesia has
not had any regulation that regulates
data tariff. Therefore request to
Telkomsel is conducted with the
consideration of customer interest,
operator and the industry interest.
“In requesting tariff decrease to
Telkomsel we asked it to consider
customer’s and operator’s interests
as well as the industry sustainabiity.
From customer’s standpoint the
govement asked for the tariff to be
more affordable,”
As to the regulation, it was
conveyed that data tariff regulation
will be conducted next year. “Data
service tariff will not be imposed until
2016,” said Ketut who is former Head
Division of Legal of Director General
of Post and Telecommunication.
Meanwhile Founder of Indo Telko
Forum Doni Ismanto Darwin urges
that the government stipulate
tariffing regulation and data quality
for data tariff. This he said is because
operators have provided application
based on quota, while customers
never know how much quota has
been used or whether it has reached
Fair Usage Policy.
“The best solution is to create
ceiling price or upper limit tariff since
operators feel that the tariff is too
inexpensive on data and rebalancing,”
suggested Doni. The issue is if
rebalancing is not supervised there
will be cases like Telkomsel. There
must be clear referrence as to what
is the maximum upper limit,” he
added.
Concerning the geographic
condition in East Indonesia that
is uneven compared to any other
areas, Doni has different opinion. He
compared tariff in Sumatera and Java
island. “The reason of operation can
be questioned if [we] take samples
in one provincial capital city where
all cellular operators are and whose
tariff is expensive. Other operators
also use transportation to develop”
he responded.

nternet service penetration
developent in Indonesia is vast
from time to time in which many
Indonesian people who at this time
have made internet access as one
of basic needs in addition to voice
service and SMS in the framework
of supporting daily activities either
for office work activities, business,
information or interactions on social
media.
For such purpose, according
to Head of Information and
Community Relation of Ministry of
Communication and Informatics, the
availability of internet service for the
public is part of active participation
of telecommunication arrangers in
developing network infrastructure
and telecommunication access to
arrange telecommunication service.
“Network infrastructure
development and telecommunication
access which have and are being
conducted by telecommunication
arrangers to the people all
over Indonesia is a form of
joint commitment between
the Government as the policy
maker as well as regulator and
9
Majalah IC T
No. 36• August 2015
telecommunication arrangers. The
government realizes that to satisfy
such commitment a very large long
term fee is required to develop and
provide telecommunication service
either in the form of voice service,
SMS and the internet. The investment
done by telecommunication arrangers
includes the entire areas of Indonesia
both in areas with dense population
and those with less dense or small
population,” explained Ismail.
Ismail said for Eastern Indonesia
area such as Maluku, Nusa Tenggara
Timur and Papua which areas are
quite large and the population rates
are low, not all telecommunication
arrangers develop and provide
telecommunication services due to
the geographic contour condition
causing low user penetration and
high investment fee.
The government admits that it has
not conducted any levied /retail tariff
regulation for internet services. The
plan for levied/retail tariff regulation
is being conducted in a discussion
by the Government, therefore
at present levied/retail tariff for
internet service of each arranger still
MAIN REPORT
applies independent tariff based on
market mechanism.
This then drives the arrangers
to apply different internet
service levied/retail tariff in
one area to another or based
on zoning. For instance for
areas with low population
rate and small internet
service user penetration,
higher internet service
levied/retail tariff is
applied compared to
levied/retail tariff in areas
with high population rate
and internet service user
penetration.
“To overcome levied/
retail tariff discrepancy and
in the framework of satisfying
the Government target to support
equality of broadband access all over
Indonesia, as well as considering the
people’s interest to obtain internet
service with affordable price and
the interest of the sustainability of
telecommunication arranger business
(industrial sustainability), Ministry of
Communication and Informatics will
take steps,” he said.
He said, for short term,
telecommunication arrangers which
offer internet service and tariff based
on zoning, the Govenment asked
recalculation of internet service
tariff. “This can reduce levied/retail
tariff discrepancy of internet service
between one zone to another all over
Indonesia,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ismail added that
for medium term the government
will compose and apply regulation
package with the purpose of
optimizing Universal Service
Obligation/USO to support
broadband service equalization
acceleration, driving infrastructure
sharing efficiency and resulting in fair
interconnection fee calculation as
well as affordable levied/retail tariff
formula, either for voice service, SMS
or data/internet.
For long term, he explained, the
government will complete Palapa
Ring project and Indonesia Broadband
Plan 2014-2019 as mandated in
President Regulation Number 96 of
2014 therefore discrepancy/gap
of internet service supply can be
overcome.
“Such steps will be implemented
by the Government together with all
stake holders in telecommunication
field, therefore telecommunication
services, including equal internet
service all over Indonesia will be
available, by maintaining competition
and sustainability of healthy
telecommunication industry, as
well as good service quality for all
Indonesian people,” said Ismail.

Backbone Lane of Palapa
Ring II Internet Will
Immediately be Auctioned
The government through Ministry
of Communication and Informatics
will immediately conduct auction for
telecommunication infrastructure and
internet work named Palapa Ring.
This network expected to connect
regencies and cities all over Indonesia
is estimated to cost IDR 3 trillion.
As explained by Minister of
Communication and Informatics
Rudiantara, this second volume of
Palapa Ring is expected to complete
in 2018 in order to support Indonesia
broadband plan (IBP). “Selection
for palapa ring which connects
regency and municipal cities must
be completed in 2018. Tender prequalification will be openend until the
end of June,” said Chief RA.
He added that Palapa Ring
development will be divided into
three namely East Indonesia, Central
Indonesia and West Indonesia.
The concept to be used by the
11
Majalah IC T
No. 36• August 2015
government in developing Palapa
Ring is least cost subsidy in which
the winner is the one who offers
the lowest government subsidy. “It
is estimated that [this project] will
need IDR 3 trillion, however this is
not paid by the government since the
concept is the smallest subsidy,” he
explained.
West Package for 5 regencies/
cities in the eastern part of Indonesia
for 1,122 km (sea) with an estimate
of project value of US$ 40,392,000
then there is Central Package in
17 regencies/cities in the western
part of Indonesia for 1,676 km
(sea and land) with an estimate of
project value of US$47,085,000
as well as East Package for 35
regencies/cities in the eastern
part of Indonesia for 5,681 km
(sea and land) with an estimate of
project value of US$143,182,000.
The project is targeted to channel
broadband service to end users
MAIN REPORT
with transfer speed of at least 10
Mbps in village areas and 20 Mbps
in urban areas which is integrated
with telecommunication network
arrangers’ network.
It was expressly stated that
despite least cost subsidy is used,
this project is guaranteed not to
cause any loss for operators if they
develop Palapa Ring. It is not a
wonder if there have been operators
which intend to work on such project.
“There have been six to seven
operators that take the documents,”
he added.
There are 27 telecommunication
fixed closed companies and license
holder IT that will participate in
the tender for optic fiber network
development project supported by
the Indonesian government, Palapa
Ring II. This trillion Rupiah project
tender process is being conducted
by Ministry of Communication
and Informatics. Pre-qualification
stage was closed on 31 July. Large
operators such as PT Telekomunikasi
Indonesia (Telkom), Indosat, PT XL
Axiata as well as PT NTT Indonesia
(Japan NTT unit) and PT Cyber
Network Indonesia also participate in
this tender. Companies that satisfy
the requirements will be reduced to
participate in the tender. The date of
the tender is yet to be announced.
Palapa Ring II is a broadband
infrastructure project targeted to
complete in 2018, said Rudiantara.
“This project has been designed since
10 years ago. I believe this project
will run well in the future,” he said.
Palapa Ring II project will include
construction, operation and
maintenance which will be divided
into two parts. The first one will be
developed in 11 regencies/cities in
the western part of Indonesia. The
winner of tender will arrange optic
fiber network for 1,823 kilometers.
The second part will include 40
regencies/cities in the eastern part
of Indonesia. Tender winner will be
requested to lay optic fiber cable for
6,572 kilometers.
In total, Palapa Ring II will develop
optic fiber network for 8,395
kilometers of optic fiber cable
to provide backbone for internet
connection in all islands in 33
provinces and 460 regencies/cities.
This project extends Palapa Ring
II network which was completed in
2009. This Palapa Ring I project is
conducted by Telkom itself after
other operators such as Indosat,
XL, Axiata, Bakrie Telecom and
information technology companies
Macca Sistem Infokom, Infokom
elektrindo and Powertek Utama
Internusa resigned from consortium.

world internet hub, by
connecting optic fiber
from Manado to the
Philipines to the United
States.
According Director
of IT & Solution
Network of Telkom
Abdus Somad Arief,
Telkom has arranged
under the sea cable
project Luwuk Tutuyan
in Soekarno-Hatta Port,
MAIN REPORT
Makassar, South Sulawesi.
According to him, Telkom plans to
connect northern parts of Indonesia
with broadband network. Telkom will
arrange this network from Medan
directly to Dubai which will end in
Manado. From Manado, this under
the sea cable will be connected
North Maluku and the Philipines. This
network from the Philipines will end
directly in the United States.
“We expect that Indonesia becomes
the backbone of international traffic.
In the future from Manado we will
arrange optic fiber cable to be
connected to the Philipines, then
directly to the United States. If it
has been sought internet users in
Indonesia can access the internet with
servers in the US faster since they
don’t have to be connected with the
network in Singapore,” he said.
Abdus Somand added that with
Indonesia connected directly to the
United States, it is targeted that
internet traffic from West Europe
will pass Indonesia if [you] intend to
access network in Asia Pacific area.
“We have a goal to become
international traffic hub by way of
connection to West Europe and the
US from Indonesia. When we talk
about hubs for flight traffic or vessel
now they are in Singapore. However
we still have a chance to become a
telecommunication hub,” he added.
Abdus Somad explained that optic
fiber network to West Europe will be
conducted through Dumai and Middle
East segment. To seek this segment
Telkom will cooperate with more less
13 countries.
“Optic fiber network heading
towards the US will be coducted
through Manado, the Philipines and
Guam and through cooperation
with more less five countries. The
connecting of such optic fiber heading
to two international lanes will be
worked on adjacently. Telkom itself
prepares fund in the amount of IDR
2.4 trillion for this project. From
Manado to the US, the completion if
God is willing is in early May 2017.
Meanwhile the one from Dumai
heading towards the Middle East to
West Europe will be complete earlier,
in this 2016,” he said.

HIGHLIGHT
Regulators Have Not Been Independent and Pro Foreign
Broadcasting & Telecommunication
Law Is Requested to be Revised
Immediately
T
elecommunication
and broadcasting
regulator at
the present
is considered as not
independent. At this time
there are members of
commissioner from the
government which are
believed to disturb policy
independence.
This was conveyed by Chairman
of Regulation and Media Regulator
Supervisor (PR2Media), Amir
Effendi Siregar. “As in Indonesia
Telecommunication Regulatory Board
(BRTI) despite the community element
it is led by Directorate General. BRTI
was established by the government,”
he regreted. Therefore, Amir sees other
interests than administering regulation.
Amir also highlights former
15
Majalah IC T
No. 36• August 2015
practicioners who
become regulators. He
is concerened that this
will disturb policy when
it is about to be made.
Supposedly according to
him practicioners at least
wait two to three years
before taking the position
of industrial referee. “Wait
for two to three years
then [you] become a regulator therefore
there is a guarantee of justice when
making decisions,” he said.
Nevertheless, independent institution
presence as telecommunication and
broadcasting regulator is highly needed.
This, he said, is to avoid government
interference and obtain involvement of
telecommunication and broadcasting
industrial observers.
“If there is still interference from
HIGHLIGHT
the government, industrial issues will
not be handled well. Therefore it will
be better to establish non government
institutions,” Amir suggested.
For this purpose, PR2Media asked the
government to revise Law No.32/2002
regarding Broadcasting and Law No.
36/1999 regarding Telecommunication.
Both Laws, according to this insitution
are considered as liberal and pro foreign
product.
Amir Effendi expressed that revising
both laws must put forward national
interest for the sake of Indonesian
people interest.In addition, he said in
this covergence era these both sectors
(Broadcasting and Telecommunication)
are related to each other, even united.
Unfortunately, regulations of these both
sectors seem to overlap and have not
been united, even different in terms of
paradigm.
“A number of articles show that both
Laws have paradigmatic difference
in regulating industrial activities. We
intend to provide inputs in order for
Broadcasting Law to be revised to have
a connection with Telecomunication
Law. In addition, Telecomunication Law
must also be changed in order to have
synchronization for national interest.
Therefore we intend to have this
regulation made for national interest,”
said Amir.
He explained that Telecommunication
Law No. 36/1999 which was issued
in deregulation and liberalization
era, continued Effendi, provides an
extensive gap to foreign investors to
control telecommunication companies.
On the other hand Broadcasting Law
No. 32/2002, despite it was issued
in reformation era, has not provided
extensive prosperity impact to the
Indonesian people.
“Based on the research conducted
in several large cities in Indonesia
such as Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta,
and Makassar, he discovered that
Indonesian government has not
sufficiently considered the sustainability
of the policy that has been taken. The
absence of blueprint and appropriate
roadmap to develop various sectors in
telecommunication is one of the main
causes. In Telecommunication Law,
cellular industry is controlled by foreign,
since the regulation gives a chance for
it. This is what we have to change,” he
said.
He said as a result of such foreign
domination Indonesian people tend
to become just a part of the market
for telecommunication and internet
industry. Dependency on imported
products and government focus
which is only to the infrastructure
causes national content industry not
to develop. “Lack of government
attention on content industry causes
foreign provider content to fill national
telecommunication channels, including
the internet which has been developed
painstalkingly. Foreign content
providers enjoy the large profit from
such transaction. The revenue goes to
foreign. Therefore this is our concern,
majority shareholders must be national,”
he ended.

owned by the state PT Telekomunikasi
Indonesia Tbk. “On 8 July 2015 Board
of Commissioners of PT Indosat Tbk
decided to temporarily dismiss Sarwoto
Atmosutarno as a member of Board of
Directors until the next General Meeting
of Shareholders (GMS),” said Indosat in
an announcement signed by President
Director of the company Alexander Rusli.
Sarwoto who is also a politician
of Nasdem Party is rumored to be
dismissed temporary due to “Personal
Reason”. Following such decision,
Indosat, a subsidiary of Ooredo Group,
will take steps in accordance with the
prevailing laws, including to prepare
extraordinary meeting of shareholders.
Temporaty dismissal is considered as
a surprising step considering Sarwono
was just appointed to hold his new
position in Indosat a month ago. He
was appointed for a post of a deputy
from the government. Sarwoto was
Telkomsel President Director until
2012, before he was replaced by Alex
Sinaga. In 2014 general election he was
legislative nominee from Nasdem Party,
representing Central Java V area.
What happened to Sarwono perhaps
cannot be separated from his position as
Indosat commissioner. Rinaldi resigned
just after Sarwono entered Indosat
Board of Directors. Rinaldi was Telkom
President Dairector when Sarwono was
President Director of Telkomsel. Rinaldi’s
position as Independent Commissioner
was replaced by Elisa Rumbantoruan.
The interesting part is in the array of
Board of Directors the name Sarwoto
Atmosutarno came up and he replaced
Fadzri Sentosa.
“Accepting the resignation of
Rinaldi Firmansyah as Independent
Commissioner of the Company, with
appreciation and gratitude, as well
as granting waiver and settlement to
the concerned from liabilities arising
from supervising actions that had been
taken from 28 January to 6 May 2015
insofar as the actions taken during the
supervising actions do not violate or
contradict with the prevailing laws,” said
press statement conveyed by Indosat
describing the resolution of the Indosat
Annual General Meeting of Shareholders
and Extraordinary General Meeting of
Shareholders in mid July.

Cooperation between XmartCity
XL – Provincial Government
of NTB
P
T XL Axiata Tbk (XL) extends its
XmartCity program cooperation
with Provincial Government of
West Nusa Tenggara (NTB)
Province. This cooperation is in the
form of XL Tunai (Cash) service
utilization for the payment of
Motor Vehicle Tax specially for
NTB area. Both parties intend to
facilitate service to the public
by utilizing digital technology
excellence. The cooperation was
signed by Head of NTB Province
Region Revenue Service Dra. Hj
Putu Selly Andayani, M.Si and
Director of Service Management of
XL, Ongki Kurniawan, in Mataram
on Monday (7/6). Governor of
NTB, Dr. TGH. M. Zainul Madji also
witnessed this signing.
Ongki Kurniawan said “Through
this program XmartCity and
XmartVillage which at this time
have been implemented in a
number of regions and local
community to maximize the
potential they have through
utilization of fast internet and
digital technology. This XL Tunai
facility utilization cooperation
program to pay motor vehicle
tax is one of the forms of its
implementation. Through this
program, we expect XL Tunai can
answer NTB Provincial Government
need to increase tax payment rate
at the same time facilitate the
public to make payments.

This at the same time is the first
in Indonesia for this type of model.”
Ongki explained, technically, by
utilizing XL Tunai motor vehicle
tax payment service will be faster
and more effective. On due date
of tax payment, customers can
make payments through XL Tunai
by accessing menu at *123*120#.
After inputing vehicle number, info
on how much of tax payable will
pop out. Next, customer will obtain
notification through SMS and can
print payment evidence in ticket
boxes provided by Regional Revenue
Service.
People of NTB will be able to
utilize this facilitating service
around August 2015. After the
signing of coopertion agreement,
XL and Regional Revenue Service
of NTB Province will soon provide
various matters needed including
locations at which it will be easier
for the public later to print tax
payment evidence.
By controlling XL market segment
of around 85% all over NTB, this
program will not be troublesome
NTB people in obtaining XL service
which the majority in such area will
not be able to obtain other benefit
from XL Tunai, as electronic money
which enables XL customers to have
27
Majalah IC T
No. 36• August 2015
financial transaction just by using
their cellular phones. The types of
transaction that can be used are
purchasing cellular phone credit,
paying bills, shopping at stores,
online shopping as well as money
transfer and receiving money
from off shore. All such types of
transaction can be done anytime
and anywhere.
This cooperation at the same
time completes programs in
the frame of XmartCity Lombok
which has been and is being
developed. Previously, XL assisted
the development of websites for
children at the orphanage to drive
the growth of their potential and
achievement. It is expected that
this can be a facility for them to be
able to show self-potential in the
limitedness that they experience.
XL and the local regional
government are also preparing
several other programs.
Lombok is the location chosen
for the comercial launching of 4G
service on 1800 MHz frequency.
As XmartCity program, such fast
internet service launching in
Lombok is the form of appreciation
of XL to Lombok people for their
trust and loyalty in choosing
XL service for the need of
telecommunication and data
service facility.
