TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - One of Indonesia's cellular telecommunication provider, XL Axiata, announced on Tuesday, October 28, 2014, that it will conduct a trial for its new 4G LTE (long term evolution) network in a number of areas in Jakarta.

CEO of XL Axiata Hasnul Suhaimi, said that the 4G service will be on available for trial until December 2014. The company claimed that it is the first telecommunications provider to provide real time 4G mobile network. "The permit will be extended if the people’s response are positive," he said on Tuesday.

Hasnul said that XL is cooperating with a number of mobile phone companies such as Nokia, Blackberry, Huawei and HTC. The company claims to have 32 million mobile internet customers or 51 percent from the total 62.9 million mobile internet users across the country. "We are still waiting for the government’s policy to use a neutral technology in the 1.800 MHz frequency range," he said.

In commemoration of the company's 18th anniversary, XL launched their new company logo alongside the 4G-LTE services, which they claim can provide high speed internet connection of up to 100 Mbps.

Minister of Communication and Information Rudiantara, said that XL’s 4G-LTE breakthrough will assist the government's program in providing internet access to the people. He said that this is the technology that Indonesia needs to enable it to compete with foreign countries. "All of Southeast Asian countries have applied this technology, except Indonesia," Rudiantara said.
