PT XL Axiata Tbk (XL Axiata) ensures that the network in Bali is in top condition and ready to welcome the reopening of Bali tourism after almost two years of being affected by the pandemic. Until now, XL Axiata’s 4G network in the Bali area has continued to increase. Despite the pandemic, XL Axiata continues to build networks throughout Bali, both for improving the quality of data and voice services in urban areas, as well as expanding to previously unreachable areas. A total of 716 villages in 57 sub-districts and 9 regencies/cities in Bali have now been served by XL Axiata’s 4G service. In addition, we are also starting to introduce the 5G network to the people of Bali. Bali sim card

Director of Technology & Chief Technology Officer of XL Axiata, I Gede Darmayusa said, “Just as the whole community and Bali tourism industry players feel, we at XL Axiata are also very enthusiastic about the plan to reopen tourism. For this reason, we have prepared the XL Axiata network to welcome all the needs to support the return of tourists, both domestic and foreign. Now, throughout Bali, we operate more than 6,600 BTS, of which 2,400 are 4G BTS. The number of 4G BTS will continue to increase considering that at this time we are also still expanding in all districts in Bali.”

The existence of 4G network in all villages in Bali is also an implementation of XL Axiata’s commitment to contribute to increasing digital literacy for people who live in remote rural areas. According to I Gede Darmayusa, the availability of a quality internet network and the increasing digital literacy will boost productivity and help people adapt to various digital economic means.

I Gede Darmayusa added, that in addition to the expansion and addition of BTS, XL Axiata also continues to increase its 4G network capacity both in terms of radio and transmission, as well as through fiberization. Now most of the BTS in Bali are fiberized, and the number will continue to increase. Meanwhile, from the beginning of 2021 until now, around 497 BTS have increased in capacity. As a tourist destination in the super-priority category according to the government’s determination, XL Axiata will also prioritize Bali for infrastructure improvement. Moreover, Bali will also be the location for the upcoming G20 Summit in 2022, so it is certain that the best network support is needed.

During the past year, in the shadow of the pandemic, XL Axiata data traffic in Bali continued to increase by around 16%, with the highest traffic increase in Singaraja and Denpasar as the provincial capitals. Likewise, since Bali was reopened to domestic tourists in early August 2021, data service traffic on XL Axiata’s 4G network has also seen an increase and continues to increase until now.
