Hi, normally the larger data is only available to postpaid subscriber. Otherwise, you can make use of the free wi-fi facilities at major public places or visit any business centers.

Hi Chin2012,

the page that you're referring to is only valid for browsing facebook, not general browsing. For browsing, it will follow regular internet tariff and btw, the speed is: 384 kbps.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

if you really need data connection, try prepaid from XL. it costs Rp 99,000 with 1.2gb limit. If you're Malaysian and have Malaysian sim card, check your operator for data roaming. AFAIK, Indonesian operators have cooperated with regional operator to provide data roaming. as an example, Indonesian XL user can have unlimited data roaming in Malaysia for one price. That's why I suggest you to check your operator.

Despite XL (Indonesia) and Celcom (Malaysia) are under the same company; Axiata, they don't share the same data roaming package. You only can top up the amount using the local currency where you are, not buying the package and use it to your foreign sim-card.

hey, Janaina S

1/ YES, you can buy a local sim in CGK airport, but the price will be far from fair............

2/ and YES again you can buy this sim in DPS and anywhere in Bali. No problem

3/ posting personal info on the open forum is never recommended if you are not interested in converting your mail box into the trash bin.
