Internet Service Industry to Grow 40% in 2008

The country's internet service industry is predicted to grow 40% next year following a 50% cut in tariff by bandwidth providers, Asia Pulse reported Wednesday (19/12/07).

Chairperson of the association of internet service providers (APJII) Sylvia Efi Widyantari Sumarlin said the change in the tariff structure by bandwidth providers will boost the internet service industry.

Sumarlin predicted that the number of users will grow 25% to 32 million next year from an estimated 25 million this year.

Next year a number of bandwidth providers have decided to cut their tariff to $1,000 per Mbps from the current level of $2,000, she said.
