Jakarta, 8 April 2021. Welcoming the month of Ramadan, PT XL Axiata Tbk (XL Axiata) launched a number of attractive promos for almost all segments, which include XL, AXIS, XL Prioritas, and XL Home products. In addition, to ensure customers can access services comfortably and according to expectations, XL Axiata also strengthened telecommunication and data networks in all service areas. Not only that, there are also social donation programs aimed at helping communities in disaster areas. This year’s Ramadan program has the theme “#BersamaJadiLebihBaik” or “Getting Better Together”, which forms the basis for XL Axiata’s management to foster and spread the spirit of optimism and togetherness in facing the challenges of daily life during the month of Ramadan, in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Also at this moment, XL Axiata launched a short video message with the title “Pesan Untuk Raka” or “Message for Raka”, which is dedicated to all fighting against the pandemic, from those who are committed to following health protocols to those who are fighting for their health. This video can be accessed on the XL Axiata YouTube channel.
The Commercial Director of XL Axiata, David Arcelus Oses, said, “As an important aspect of Indonesian society, Ramadan, followed by Eid, is always a special time for XL Axiata. Equipped with the knowledge of last year’s Ramadan, service usage traffic during both Ramadan and Eid continue to experience a significant increase, even during the pandemic and heightened travel restrictions as a result of it. This year, conditions are projected to be similar to the last, including the ban on homecoming travel, which is why we have prepared a number of promo products that have been especially tailored to the needs of our customers in various segments of society during this time. We hope that our offers can keep customers productive, while at the same time meet their needs by supporting their Ramadan and Eid activities.”
Network traffic is expected to increase by up to 10% during Ramadan compared to traffic on weekdays, and will increase by up to 20% when entering the Eid holiday. For this reason, XL Axiata has prepared a network that can accommodate all increased traffic by expanding capacity up to 200% compared to the daily capacity. In addition, network optimization is also carried out by analyzing the possibility of movement of our customers and the public. Therefore, the government policy of prohibiting travel during Eid will act as a reference to strengthen the network in residential areas, without reducing network quality at commercial locations.
Digital services that can help customers conduct prayer or worship activities and stay in touch with family and friends are expected to be widely accessed by the public. Applications that provide e-books are likely to be widely accessed in order to obtain digital versions of the Koran or other religious books. In addition, applications that allow people to stay in touch online are also likely to be increasingly used. Ramadan and Eid traditions also encourage people to strengthen friendship. Applications that allow gatherings of groups such as for online schooling will also be used for family and community gatherings. The possibility of increased traffic will also occur on applications for entertainment and lifestyle, especially for the streaming of music, films, videos and games.
