Indonesia’s XL launches commercial 3G


Indonesia’s third-largest GSM operator and a subsidiary of Telekom Malaysia, PT Excelcomindo Pratama Tbk (XL), today launched a 3G-based service, XL3G, in Jakarta.

This makes Indonesia the third Southeast Asian nation, after Singapore and Malaysia, to launch 3G services commercially.

XL is the country’s second 3G operator after PT Telkomsel, the biggest GSM operator, which launched a similar service last month. PT Indosat, the country’s second-biggest operator, reported that it will offer commercial 3G in November.
