Repair of Data Cable Delayed
Thursday, 04 January, 2007 | 16:56 WIB

Tempo Interactive, Jakarta: The efforts to repair the undersea data cable, which was cut due to an earthquake in Taiwan on Tuesday last week, will be delayed.

This is because one of the ships that was to have been used to repair the data cable has been damages.

The ship is now anchored in the Luzon Strait, between Taiwan and the Philippines, waiting to be repaired.
A Hong Kong telecommunication expert said the damaged ship needs around seven days to be repaired.

“We estimate the plan to repair the undersea data can only start on January 16,” said the official in Hong Kong, who would not reveal his/her name.

However, a senior executive of Chunghwa Telecom Co., Wu Chih-ming, has promised that the two ships which are to repair the cable will arrive in Taiwan soon and start work, with two more ships to follow.

Internet communication and international telephone connections started to recover on December 29, but up until yesterday internet connection was still sluggish.
Internet access speed in Indonesia has still not yet recovered 100 percent.

Although users can already open America-based websites, sometimes it takes hours for the pages to be fully displayed.

Cellular phone operators are also continuing to try and repair their data traffic network capacity (bandwidth).

According to Gatot S. Dewa Broto, spokesperson of the Post and Telecommunications Directorate General, on the fifth day since the government announced an internet emergency situation (force majeure), the recovery of telecommunication providers' capacity has progressed significantly.

“The bandwidth capacity of Telkom (PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk.), for example, is back up to 80 percent,” said Gatot in Jakarta yesterday (3/1).

He went on to say that it was a similar situation with PT Indonesian Satellite Corporation Tbk. (Indosat), which has recovered 100 percent of its voice and BlackBerry services.

Indosat’s internet capacity is already back up to more than 80 percent.

“From a point of view of quantity side, XL (PT Excelcomindo Pratama Tbk.) has also been able to serve all its customers normally. Although in terms of quality side, there is still a decrease,” he said.
