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

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.
