4G Usage in 2 Years - June 18th, 2015

XL Axiata, one of the leading telecommunications network in Indonesia along with Telkomsel and Indosat and a sister company of Axis Capital Group under the parent company, Axiata Malaysia, predicts that 25% of mobile users will be subscribing to 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) services within two years provided that the cost of smartphones would have become more affordable that time.

The commercial availability of LTE/4G will change the game for the operators in Indonesia, as the inherent speed and capacity advantages of the technology will more closely meet the service expectations of the millions of “data-hungry” subscribers eagerly awaiting its launch.

The limited availability of low-cost devices is likely to peg 4G growth to ‘less than 10% of its total number of data subscribers’ this year, he said, with the Ministry for Industry noting that 4G smartphones are expected to account for just 5% of total imported smartphones this year. Of the roughly 30 million XL mobile users, some 16.1 million use smartphones. The operator’s total subscriber base currently stands at 59.6 million, including those with post-paid contracts. XL Axiata reports a total of 30,000 4G subscribers, but aims to net a total of three million 4G subscribers by the end of this year, supported by a massive marketing campaign. XL’s 4G service was launched commercially in December 2014, and is currently available in Jakarta, Medan, Bogor, Yogyakarta and Surabaya. XL aims to make the service available in a total of eight to ten cities by year-end. Rival operator Telkomsel, meanwhile, has recently launched its 4G service in Bandung and previously claimed its 4G base stood at 30,000 by January this year.

In order to be able to use the 4G connections in Indonesia, you must use 4G-ready smartphones. To connect to 4G networks from operators, users in Indonesia must first exchange the SIM cards in respective service centers, and then subscribe to specific data plans. For Bolt, you can either connect to its 4G modem via a 4G smartphone, or directly use Bolt SIM cards which are only compatible with Bolt’s own smartphones.

Regarding complaints on internet speed, XL Axiata is number one, promising internet speed up to 100Mbps. Second place goes to Bolt with speed of up to 72Mbps. Telkomsel and Indosat tie in third place with speed of “just” up to 36Mbps. That’s still a nice boost to operators’ maximum speed last year on 3G, which was up to 14.4Mbps.

A little warning though, internet connection speeds in Indonesia are quite low in general due to the lack of infrastructure, so even if the numbers above look decent, in reality you can still get a very slow connection. The mentioned speeds are advertised “up to”, which means they can and probably will run slower.
