Batam, 30 March 2023. PT XL Axiata tbk (XL Axiata) data services in Sumatra continue to experience growth. Currently, the number of customers in the Sumatra region reaches more than 21% of XL Axiata's total customers. Of this number, more than 93% of them are data subscribers with data traffic growth in the last 2 years throughout Sumatra increasing to 84%. Responding to this growth, XL Axiata continues to strengthen its data network in almost all regions of Sumatra, to areas that are considered remote areas, especially the 4G network. XL Axiata's total 4G network throughout Sumatra and the surrounding islands has reached more than 20,100 villages, 1,700 districts, and 150 cities/regencies.


Group Head of XL Axiata West Region, Desy Sari Dewi said, "The increasing demand from customers and the people of Sumatra for XL Axiata data services is very high and continues to increase. This occurs almost evenly in all provinces. In general, the level of digital literacy continues to increase, followed by an increased understanding of the positive benefits of data services and fast internet. Moreover, XL Axiata continues to offer more benefits for customers. Therefore, in the last two years, XL Axiata has consistently strengthened its data network to all provinces, including expanding to new areas, as well as improving network quality with fiberization and the application of new technologies."


Desy added the total BTS throughout Sumatra is more than 33,800 BTS, including more than 21,400 4G BTS. Currently, more than 63% in all of Sumatra has already been in fiberization. The construction of new networks and fiberization will continue throughout 2023 and in the years to come. In the last 2 years, the addition of 4G BTS by XL Axiata was more than 9,000 BTS spread throughout the Sumatra area, with the highest number of additions in Deli Serdang Regency, Medan City, Langkat Regency, East Ogan Komering Ulu Regency, Pekanbaru City, and South Lampung Regency adjusted to the high demand for data that continues to increase in the area.


Several provinces in Sumatra with the highest increase in data service usage traffic were Lampung Province, South Sumatra Province, West Sumatra Province, North Sumatra Province, and Riau Province.


Specifically for the Riau Islands Province (Kepri), XL Axiata has covered more than 90% of the area, covering more than 235 villages and 53 districts in 7 cities/regencies. Until the last two years, in the Riau Islands, XL Axiata's data traffic has increased by around 20% each year. Along with this increase, XL Axiata is improving network quality and expanding network coverage by adding in various new villages. Most of them are in Lingga and Natuna Regencies.


"XL Axiata customers will use a lot of data services, especially social media to share content. Customers also access more streaming services, be it videos, music or games, which require large capacity. Streaming includes Youtube, Vidio & Spotify, messaging applications are Whatsapp and game applications are Mobile Legend. Sumatra still has quite a large potential for XL Axiata, this can be seen from the growth in traffic and subscribers which are increasing from year to year," continued Desy.
