Hey guys, im thinking to get internet provider in jakarta later if i relocate there, which internet provider do guys think better? I want cable or satellite internet if possible, dial up is way too slow in Jakarta.
June 18th, 2004, 06:27 AM
You could get DSL...Cable suddenly got more expensive so it might be worth getting DSL since it is much faster, albeit more expensive. But if you get cable through kabelvision, CBN is a good provider.

Are you using DSL grey? how fast can you get? 128/128KB minimum? but i heard DSL have limited download capacity, is that true?
June 18th, 2004, 06:39 AM
No, i use cable. Its good enough, but during peak hours it gets really slow. Some of my friends use DSL, and although its a more expensive than cable its fast all the time. I'm not so sure how fast. And i dont know if it has limited download capacity.

but i dunno if you can get it in Indo =(

So how fast and how widespread broadband offering in Indonesia now?
How much money needed to have one?
August 27th, 2004, 06:39 PM
Senhen, telkom now offers Telkom premium, dial up with the speed of download almost the same like "low speed cable"
I saw the speed test using a website, it was reaching 50-62Kbps. quite fast because it was during the day.
anyway, DSL is now everywhere in Jakarta, nice to see this IT development.

I tought you're already in JKT Dave?
August 28th, 2004, 04:52 AM
how much is the dsl service in jakarta? what's the max speed? 768 kbps?
August 28th, 2004, 05:02 AM
50 - 60 Kilo BIT per second or Kilo Byte per second?
I assume Kilo BIT right?
August 28th, 2004, 06:12 AM
@Sanhen its KBps not KBs if im not recalling wrong. When i use Mirc and i download some hentai movie, i got 75,000 cps from a dsl too in arizona.
@tata, just in jakarta 3 weeks ago :D
August 28th, 2004, 06:23 AM
using normal modem or?
coz AFAIK normal modem can only go as far as 56KBps
oh maybe using that telkom flexi CDMA maybe ya?
August 28th, 2004, 06:28 AM
Sorry sanhen, i thought yo're talking about the DSL speed, lol, that was dsl modem speed test in jakarta. not the telkom premium one. the premium one was around 5,000 cps.
sorry my fault, :D

Hey GreyX, I got some question for you regarding Indovision
I have indovision now and I want to disable the subtitle on HBO, AXN and Cinemax but i couldnt. Why is that?
2nd question, do you have problem watching the program at 1AM? usually it goes blank or "sorry its still have problem, you can watch at 1AM"
Thanks Grey, I know your dad is the boss there :D

some information from my side - from Surabaya, JATIM.
KABELVISION: easy to say: forget it! But service, but quality of international uplink (many times the uplink is down and customer service don't know it), speed is not so fast (international sides). a 64KB - line is normally shared with 15 people. I was using a personal subscription and got one 64KB-line alone - it was better, but still not so fast like 64 KByte/s should be. Somedays someone said to me, that they only give a guarantee that 4 Kbyte/s is stabil avaible (but where this standing nobody can show me ).
DSL: since Oktober 2004 here in Surabaya SPEEDY is avaible. Direct from the TELKOM. The prices are okay, the speed is okay (much more better than Kabelvision). Since March 2005 the TELKOM offering also SPEEDY in parts of Jakarta. As far as I heared SPEEDY should come also on Bali this year (someone told me Juni - I got from a Telekom-employee the information September 2005) and also in other parts on Java.
Price information SPEEDY:
Light Internet (384 kbs Down/ 64 kbs Up / 500 MByte Free monthly) === 300,000.00 IDR
Medium Internet (384 kbs Down/ 64 kbs Up / 1000 MByte Free monthly) == 450,000.00 IDR
Heavy Internet (512 kbs Down/ 64 kbs Up / 2000 MByte Free monthly) === 800,000.00 IDR
What is needed? The registration to the SPEEDY-Service (200,000.00 IDR), a splitter and a ADSL-Modem (I am using SMC, because got expierence with the products of SMC).
Enough information? Any questions? You can find more informations concerning ADSL here (http://www.telkomspeedy.com)
I am hoping this information will help a little bit.

Thanks tom, appreciate your info. I was thinking to sign up with speedy but then some of my friends complained that the billing statements were completely messed up, therefore i decided not to use it. Any idea if telkom will actually fix this problem?

I heard that Biznet will offer a direct fiber optic connection to homes starting in South Jakarta.
February 23rd, 2007, 03:44 AM
Kalo di INDONESIA .... gw pake TELKOMNET INSTAn ....(atau kalo mo cepet pergi aja ke warnet yang pake koneksi satelit .... atau waktu masih SMA bisa make komputer sekolah yang udah punya internet satelit (tapi karena koneksinya di-share ama puluhan komputer di skolah ... kalo lagi jam belajar tetep aja lambat) ....)
Kalo di MALAYSIA .... mudah banget ...Wi-Fi bisa mendownload... 10 MegaByte file dalam kurang dari 30 detik ...
February 23rd, 2007, 04:35 AM
kusmae, that will not help much. the problem is (beside national infrastructure), is the international link to the internet backbone. it is just too slow.
probably using satellite is better, but usually the latency is big, so it is not suitable for online gaming.
February 23rd, 2007, 07:12 AM
Sanhen, according to my friends who works there, they will provide a very high speed connection up to several mbps for the home user. Biznet has been expanding its international link capacity aggressively since they launched the so called metro networks last year. I hope this project is going to be realized soon. :)
February 23rd, 2007, 11:17 AM
that sure a good news. so i can call home using VoIP hahaha
February 23rd, 2007, 01:52 PM
Speed yg gua pake bisa mentok sampe 80GB sebulan

Gua sih Indosat aja deh :)
February 23rd, 2007, 10:33 PM
Iya.. download quota hehehe. Speed mentok cuman 24Mb.
June 16th, 2007, 11:06 AM
Finally Biznet has launched the FO service. But so sad coz its still limited to the melawai area :(
