Jakarta, July 16th, 2020. In response to the needs of the community during this pandemic, PT XL Axiata (XL Axiata) continues to provide services that are in line with customer expectations.

This new feature provides additional benefits for customers in accessing streaming platforms and video applications without restrictions on quota and speed. This latest feature has taken effect nationally starting from Tuesday, July 14th, 2020.
XL Axiata Group Head Mass Segment, Bernard Ho Swee Keong said, "The Covid-19 Pandemic obliges people to spend more time at home, although they still have to study and work. To overcome the mass boredom that arises, they need access to entertainment, including films and videos. We've seen an increase in access to movie streaming and video service provider applications during this pandemic. Accessing video or streaming applications, including conference or virtual meeting platforms, is the service most widely used by the public. Currently, traffic has reached over 60% compared to previous traffic.”
