A Guide to Mobile Data Plans in Indonesia


We must admit that mobile internet or data plan is a part of our monthly budget. What started out as a tertiary need is now just as necessary as  food and shelter. Even if you are not an active user of social media, you need it to check your email accounts or simply to know the latest news and information.

To fulfill all your data needs you will have to be smart in choosing the plan that has full speed, is affordable, and effective. Each mobile operator in Indonesia offers different data mobile plans with different benefits and prices. Some operators compete among themselves by offering low prices, but in the end speed and network coverage are the main considerations in choosing your data operator.

It is important to know that certain areas in Indonesia are still not covered by any internet connection (2G, 3G or 4G). The internet speed may vary depending on your location; even if you are in Jakarta it does not always guarantee that you can get full internet speed.

Here we will give you the comparison of monthly mobile internet plans from three major mobile providers in Indonesia: Telkomsel, Indosat Ooredoo, and XL Axiata.


Telkomsel is probably one of the best mobile providers in Indonesia in terms of connectivity. Even if you’re at remote areas, your phone is most likely to find Telkomsel’s connectivity only. It is not surprising then if Telkomsel sets higher prices than its competitors. Its 4G connectivity is also one of the best in Indonesia. For internet connection, Telkomsel applies different prices and benefits depending on the user’s locations.

Want to Stay Healthy? Try Washing Your Hands


Want to Stay Healthy? Try Washing Your HandsDo you often fall sick???

Germs are everywhere. You may not want to think about it, but every surface around us is covered with bacteria. Here is a tip to protect you from Diarrhea, Acute Respiratory Infections, Pneumonia and many other gastric diseases – Wash your hands properly with soap. Yes that’s it!

Washing hands before eating and after using the toilet is known to save more lives than any single vaccine, reducing the diarrhea death rate by half and Acute Respiratory Infections death rate by one-quarter. Hand washing involves a total of 11 steps. Make this your habit.

Many other options such as cleansing wipes, antibacterial lotions and hand sanitizers are easily available to maintain hygiene.

You use your hands to touch everything around you, and it’s the fastest way to communicate infectious germs. It is surprising and eye opening to spend 10 minutes at a public rest room at the office, mall or movie theater. Observe the number of people who will actually wash their hands. And if they do wash their hands do they wash their hands properly? This short experiment may result in your greeting people with a ‘Namaste’ instead of shaking hands.

Eventually, if you touch your eyes, nose or mouth, it gives germs access to your insides. So avoid touching your eyes, especially, with your hands as this prevents transmission of any germs.
