Besides you can use your mobile phone to connect to the Internet, but make sure to check up-o-date Internet packages that allow you to save considerably. All mobile operators offer their modems with built-in SIM card as well (access speed via modem is usually much higher than a cell phone). At this point the operator Smart offers very favorable conditions for unlimited Internet. You can purchase mini router and use it to connect multiple laptops using WiFi. The price for unlimited access at the moment is 120,000 rupiahs per month. WiFi access is also very common in bars and restaurants where you can use your laptop after ordering a drink. The expensive hotels usually provide WiFi at extra charge. Some guesthouses and budget hotels can have free Internet access. ADSL connections at the moment are quite expensive and you will pay around 450,000 rupiahs for a 1MB channel. In general, if you do not need a very fast Internet connection then you won’t experience any problems with Internet.
