Bali Daily has reported on the close link between Internet usage in Bali and the rapid growth of the island’s tourism sector.

Zulfadly Syam, chairman of the Bali chapter of the Association of Indonesian Internet Providers (APJI), described the Internet business in Bali, saying: “The Internet users are mainly foreign visitors, hotels, tourism businesses, offices and urban residents.”

Syam estimates that 90% of Internet-dependent businesses are gathered in the island’s south in order to take advantage of the concentration of Internet networks, with service to many more remote areas of the island still plagued by low connection speeds.

Steps, however, are underway to improve and expand the Internet infrastructure in Bali. On Saturday, May 26, 2012, BIZNET Networks held a reception celebrating the expansion of its Fiber Optic network to Ubud in Central Bali.

BIZNET Network is Indonesia’s leading fixed-line and multi-media telecommunications provider, providing network, Internet, data center, cloud computing and Pay TV service, BIZNET Network also operates the nation’s biggest data collection center in West Java.

The high-speed connections made possible by their Fiber Optic system means BIZNET will soon be launching max3 - the latest Internet connection and pay TV service in High Definition (HD).

In addition, the Indonesian government is launching a National Internet Exchange (NIX) in cooperation with Bali-based Internet providers. The government is taking these step following a survey showing that Indonesia’s Internet connection speeds are the slowest among ASEAN member nations.

Hotels and travel service providers are becoming increasingly dependent on bookings made over the Internet, making the need for high-speed, dependable and affordable Internet connections an inseparable part of national development.
