Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr XL Axiata 4G Network Ready to Serve the People of South Sulawesi
Currently, in South Sulawesi Province, XL Axiata's 4G network has reached more than 2,380 villages in 246 districts. The network has also covered most of the Makassar - Parepare railway line which was recently inaugurated by the President of the Republic of Indonesia.

Makassar, 30 March 2023.  PT XL Axiata Tbk (XL Axiata) ensures 4G network performance in all areas of South Sulawesi. Strengthening of the data network continues throughout the year as part of XL Axiata's efforts to ensure optimal customer service, including during the long Eid holiday season. Currently, in South Sulawesi Province, XL Axiata's 4G network has reached more than 2,380 villages in 246 districts. The network has also covered most of the Makassar - Parepare railway line which was recently inaugurated by the President of the Republic of Indonesia.


XL Axiata's Chief Corporate Affairs, Marwan O. Baasir, said, "Sulawesi is one of the special regions for XL Axiata. Over the past two years, we have been intensively developing and strengthening networks and fiberization in Sulawesi. As a result, the level of customer satisfaction increases as indicated by a significant increase in traffic. Data traffic throughout Sulawesi continues to increase by 170% in the last two years.”


Meanwhile, XL Axiata East Region Group Head, Dodik Ariyanto, added, the network strengthening that XL Axiata did in South Sulawesi was not only to anticipate traffic spikes during the Eid long holiday but indeed network strengthening was continuously carried out to all service areas along with an increase in telecommunication and data traffic. Network strengthening also covers tourist areas in South Sulawesi as well as an effort to support the smooth running of the tourism program being promoted by the government.


According to Dodik, improving the quality of data networks in South Sulawesi in general is indeed a necessity to support the incessant digitalization in various sectors. On the other hand, the provision of a 4G network in this province is also to meet the needs of the community in increasing their digital literacy so that they are able to adapt to digitalization that is occurring in various fields, both social and business and government. Sufficient digital literacy will enable them to be able to access and utilize available digital services.


In the last two years, data traffic in South Sulawesi has grown by more than 50%. Currently, the total number of subscribers is more than 1.2 million, served by more than 4,800 BTS, including around 3,200 4G BTS. This shows that the 4G network there is optimally utilized by local residents. Therefore, XL Axiata has continued to add 4G BTS to as many as 413 units in the last two years. The areas with the highest traffic were Makassar City, Bone Regency, Sidenreng Rappang Regency, Maros Regency, and Bulukumba Regency.


In terms of business, with a population of more than 9 million people, South Sulawesi has quite a potential as a market for XL Axiata service products, both for individual and MSMEs services. To seize the market, XL Axiata ensures network and service quality throughout South Sulawesi.


"We are aware that currently, only service quality will be able to increase customer loyalty and appeal to the wider community because quality service will be able to provide benefits to support productive activities. For this reason, we will continue to build data networks, both for expansion and for improvement of signal quality," continued Dodik.
