Sylvia said she expected internet usage numbers to grow by about 25% in the near future, to 32 million users, given that, according to her, the government is planning to lower telephone tariffs (as most Indonesian internet users have a dial-up connection) and asia.cnet

    Thanks for that Information, Patung, I was looking for more up-to-date data. You already said that it´s not sure whether this count (25 mill) includes G3, GPRS users, but do you have any idea how it deals with warnet/ Café users?

  2. David says:

    Hi Nad, well I assume it includes them, considering that of the 25 million only 2 million are direct subscribers to an ISP. So if 23 million people are using the net without subscribing to an ISP I guess they are doing it mostly at work, or at warnets.
