PT Telkom plans to lower Internet Speedy access rate

Nusa Dua, Bali (Antara News) - State telecommunications firm PT Telkom is trying to reduce the rate of Internet broadband access called Speedy by 30 percent in 2007 and by another 20 to 30 percent in 2008, the company`s director Arwin Rasyid said here.

"The plan is part of efforts to participate in the provision of national Internet Protocol (IP) and in the development of local network," Arwin said on the sidelines of the Asia Pacific Regional Internet Conference Operation Technologies (APRICOT) 2007.

By doing so, he said, Internet access rate which is provided by Speedy will be equal to the rates offered by regional operators, he said.

"Cheap Internet access will give many positive impacts and great contribution to the economic and educational sectors," he said.

The role of telecommunications in the national implementation of information and communications technology (ICT) will create effective and efficient IP-based infrastructure through broadband wireline and broadband wireless, he said.

PT Telkom, he said, will take part in the development of broadband wireless-3G service program and Palapa Ring consortium project which is aimed to improve accessibility in the eastern parts of Indonesia.

PT Telkom is committed to the development of the e-business, e-education and e-government application services, he said.

"The objectives of the scheme is to create an acknowledgeable Indonesian community as well as to support telecommunications network development in 43,000 villages, 31,173 junior and senior high schools, 2,428 universities and 28,504 health centers in Indonesia by 2025," he said. (*)

Can I also suggest they change the name for Slowy?

Lower the price is just making it fair, right now it's so expensive for a crapy connection like that.
