WIFI Connection in Tuk Tuk (Samosir - North Sumatra)

WIFI Connection in Tuk Tuk (Samosir - North Sumatra)

Guests planning to visit Lake Toba – Samosir and especially TUK TUK, should be aware that for the time being there will be no WIFI Connection and Landline Telephone connection. This holds for all of Tuk Tuk, starting from Jl Gereja. The situation in nearby places as Parapat, Tomok and Ambarita is normal.

The reason is that two days ago the next phase of the Tuk Tuk Ring Road reconstruction project was started with tearing up the main Telkom Cable.

Reportedly, a new cable has been ordered from Medan, but before the cable is here and in full operation will take some time, days, weeks if not months.

It means that guests can not expect any working WIFI in any accommodation in Tuk Tuk. It also means that accommodations depending on WIFI for communication for guests may have difficulties in communicating with their (potential) guests.

HORAS !!!! HORAS !!!!! HORAS !!!!! WELCOME TO LAKE TOBA AND TUK TUK

Strange practice. In Bukit Lawang they will kick out walk-in guests (i.e. those that have already stayed several nights) in order to accommodate (non-prepaid) bookings.

I don't know how they can call it a reservation, also the 70% figure doesn't sound true to me.

It is my pleasure to inform that since yesterday the regular WIFI has been fully restored all over Tuk Tuk. It does not mean that it is working in every place where you see the WIFI sign. If it is not working in the place where you expect it to work the excuse can not be anymore that it is because of the still ongoing drainage and road reconstruction works. The real reason being that in such place the equipment broke down or that the bill was not paid and therefore this particular spot was disconnected.

HORAS !!! HORAS !!! HORAS !!! WELCOME TO TUK TUK
