Magelang, 11 June 2021. The tourism industry in Central Java continues to toil and strive to grow, including in the Magelang, Temanggung and Wonosobo areas. PT XL Axiata Tbk (XL Axiata) is ready to support the revival of the tourism industry through the provision of reliable telecommunications and data networks in the area.

In total, XL Axiata currently operates around 450 3G and 4G BTS spread across the Magelang, Temanggung and Wonosobo regions.
XL Axiata's Central Region Group Head, Bambang Parikesit said, "The tourism sector is one of the economic pillars of the Magelang, Temanggung and Wonosobo regions. One of the factors of a strong tourism ecosystem is the availability of a strong data network. Therefore, XL Axiata welcomes the tireless initiatives of various parties to stimulate tourism in Central Java, by ensuring the readiness of our network. In Central Java, our 4G network has even reached remote villages located at the foot of mountains which are now popular tourist destinations, including in Butuh Village which is now known as Nepal van Java, Selo Village which is between Mount Merapi and Mount Merbabu, as well as the Ketep Pass Viewpoint.”
The XL Axiata network has reached 98% of the total 59 sub-districts in the entire City and Regency of Magelang, Temanggung, and Wonosobo, serving a total of nearly 500 thousand customers. The network fiberization program also continues to be carried out to all existing BTS in order to increase network capacity so that data quality is maximized. In recent years, the company has also continued to expand into areas not yet covered by cellular services.
According to Bambang, in the last two years, average data traffic has increased by 340% in this region, with the highest growth in Magelang. Within the same timespan, there was an increase in the number of customers of up to 196 percent, with the highest increase also seen in Magelang. The significant rise in traffic and customers shows that this area has great potential. People are increasingly dependent on the internet for their daily activities.
