XL installs new backbone network

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

PT Exelcomindo Pratama officially launched Monday a new submarine fiber optic cable network linking Batam with Johor, which gives the country's third largest mobile operator the largest telecoms backbone network in the country.

The network, which cost around US$10 million, is mainly aimed at enhancing the company's services to individual and corporate customers for internet traffic and data loading purposes.

President director Hasnul Suhaimi said the Batam Rengit Cable System (BRCS) would maximize the firm's performance at still competitive prices, especially in providing international Internet access.

"Hopefully, it will help increase Indonesia's Internet usage by 30 percent by the end of 2008, with faster speeds, more reliable connections and lower price," Hasnul said during the inauguration ceremony.

XL Network director Dian Siswarini said that the BRCS linked up with the network of Telekom Malaysia (TM), which is XL's main shareholder, so that it now forms part of an international Internet network.

"Malaysia's network provides an alternative for international Internet access. Currently, most of Asia's Internet providers use Singapore's network, and it is quite packed," Dian explained.

The company already has a cable connecting Batam and Singapore.

On the domestic front, XL has built a number of fiber optic backbone systems around Java island, which have a total length of over 10,000 kilometers.

It has also built submarine fiber optic networks in Lombok-Sumbawa in West Nusa Tenggara, and southern Makassar in South Sulawesi and Palu, North Sulawesi, to Sangata in North Kalimantan which connect in with the Java backbone system.

As of the end of September, the company had earned Rp 5.4 trillion (US$58.9 billion) in revenues, a rise of 31 percent from the Rp 4.1 trillion it earned in the same period last year. (nkn)

Not so fast??? - literally AND figuratively <senyum>.

Remember about a month or more ago I asked here for the forum's wisdom concerning the best broadband service in JKT?

Back then, people were still making noises like Telkom's Speedy was the only real choice for any red-meat-eating forum members <s>. I've delayed shifting because I keep hearing stories about Speedy's all too frequent downtimes.

This FastNet sounds like it's too good to be true. It's lowest price packet beats a dial-up services in both speed and price at my usage levels!

However, when I just went to FastNet's web site to see what's going on, I did "Step 2" to check if I would be included in its coverage area. I got a site error message (several times)!

Would that be what people mean when they talk about OMENS? bomb

all of the operators seem to have problems in certain areas. some will rave about their kabelvision connection, others curse it. some think speedy is the ant's pants, myself, i've always found it wanting.

the only real solution is to suck 'em and see. what's good for someone in one area may not be good for you in your area.

KuKuKaChu: dangerously too sophisticated
Fast Net seems to be jolly good. Cheap 'n' fast and various chums of mine would concur. You can actually watch people falling of buildings etc. on YouTube in real stream time.
