High-speed Internet and data services increasingly become the mainstay operators. Indosat launches dual-carrier HSPA + technology (64 QAM or MIMO) speed of 42 Mbps downlink and uplink 5, 8 Mbps. Group Head of Brand Marketing VAS Indosat said Teguh Prasetya high-speed network was already ready to use and not just a trial. Network with 42 Mbps speed is the first in Asia and second in the world after Australia's Telstar. Currently, Indosat has a number of existing data service customers as much as 1, 5 million people. While the 2010 target could reach 2, 5 million until the end of the year. "The plan in 2011 Indosat will hold a speed of up to 80-160 Mbps (downlink) and 12 Mbps (uplink)," said Teguh. The presence of HSPA + technology that promised support for Internet cruising speeds. In addition, for streaming video and high definition television, video conference, download, upload super fast, high-speed file transfer and remote high-definition monitors. While that day XL trial signed an agreement on the application of technology Long Term Evolution (LTE) for 3-6 months at the Central Jakarta area. "We did not play technology which only added + (plus) course. It's just-marketing gimmick, because the ecosystem itself is not ready, "said President Director of XL Axiata Hasnul Suhaimi. He said LTE as the last step is the aim XL broadband technology to leap further. Even XL promising downlink speeds up to 100 Mbps. XL confident after testing LTE will be no growth in data services for more than 13, 8%. "Data services contributed 1% of total revenue in 2009 to Rp12 trillion, approximately Rp120 billion. In 2010 XL data services can contribute to target of Rp1 trillion, so 15%, "added Hasnul. Contacted separately, Secretary General IDTUG (Indonesia Telecommunications Users Group) Muhammad Jumadi rate broadband or high speed internet in the future is technology that has a fascination for the user. But he cautioned that the operator does not forget about quality. "I think that's fine, if the operator wants to open the service even 4 G. But do not forget the quality of the network, users are very annoyed to see the condition of the current connections that are not current, before talking too much, prepare and improve your existing service first!, "Said Jumadi. According Jumadi Indonesia broadband market is huge, both individuals and corporations in the entire country. However IDTUG reminded that the deployment of the network is not just for competition sake. "People in urban areas requires a lot of broadband in the next 2-3 years into the future and I see small and medium enterprise sector (SMEs), large potential. I welcome, but that it should be noted three G what? his fate is currently not heard from again. " "Do not just test the LTE prestige only to compete with other providers of cellular and WiMax operators. Operators do not just shout, but improve once the quality of existing services, "added Jumadi. Vice President of Marketing & Communications, Ericsson Hardyana Syintawati said. Each operator has their own preferences regarding the application of technology, whether HSPA + or LTE. Indonesia still has not applied the four technologies G. While the technology 3 G, 3, 5 G and WiMax still has not been adequately implemented in Indonesia, because it involves the application or content ecosystem, community, demand and regulation is still very limited although the technology is feasible. So far, countries that have implemented technologies such as LTE, Norway, Sweden and the United States. "Only Norway, Sweden and the United States that have implemented LTE. Singapore is the only country that has been tested before the Indonesian official. If you look at the existing ecosystem Indonesia still take 2-3 more years if that aspect of his supporters are ready, "added Hardyana.
