2. MNC Play
The second home internet provider that I also recommend is MNC Play, which is owned by a large company MNC Media. The advantage of this one provider is that the price is cheaper than its competitors.
You can enjoy this fiber-based service from MNC Play with prices starting from IDR 369,000 every month. With this price, you can already enjoy services that include MNC Now as well as IPTV.
With this very affordable price, the speed you can get is only up to 30 Mbps. However, the installation cost is also not expensive. You only need money for installation of around IDR 200,000 plus a 10% VAT fee.
MNC Play also provides other packages which are of course set at a more expensive but affordable price. So, if you want to install this MNC play provider, don’t forget to look for more detailed information about the packages provided.
The third recommended internet provider is Biznet. Although it is more famous for being used by companies, Biznet also has Biznet Home services, which you can use at home. The packages offered by Biznet are also varied, starting from Rp. 325,000 per month. You can already enjoy services from Biznet. The speed offered by Biznet is also quite high, reaching 75 Mbps.
With such a super speed, the installation cost is also quite high. The initial installation of Biznet can reach IDR 750,000 rupiah. Then there is a device rental fee of IDR 900,000.
Quite expensive indeed, but the services provided are also comparable to the price offered. This service from Biznet includes IPTV with TV on demand technology. In addition, the fiber optic network from Biznet has also become the widest in Indonesia, even reaching Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, and Sulawesi.
4. XL Fiber
The fourth home internet provider recommendation falls to XL Fiber. XL Home Fiber is a product issued by XL Axiata. The speed offered by XL Fiber is also no joke, because it reaches 1 Gbps. This service with fiber optic network is specifically for housing and retail. In addition, there are digital entertainment services that use Android TV boxes.
The advantages that you can get besides the high speed, which is that you can also access unlimited entertainment. Including to access various movies from Netflix.

5. First Media
The next provider is First Media, which has become an idol for many home providers. This internet provider belongs to a company that used to be engaged in Cable TV services. As the name implies, it turns out that First Media is also the first internet service provider in Indonesia. Therefore, it is not surprising that many people from various regions have become consumers.
As the first to provide internet services, this provider is also known for its good quality, where the speeds offered start from 15 Mbps. Prices or fees required are also standard, not too expensive. To use this service, at least it costs Rp. 384,000 per month.

6. My Republic
The next internet provider that is no less recommended is My Republic. This provider is an internet service originating from a neighboring country, namely Singapore. This company started to enter Indonesia in 2015. But unmitigated, My Republic offers lucrative internet services, namely with speeds up to 30 Mbps. But there is a form, of course there is a price.
The super speed is offset by the price offered, which is around Rp. 336,000 per month. The price per month does not include installation. If you want to install it, at least you need a fee of IDR 500,000 plus 10% VAT.
Another advantage offered by My Republic lies in the services provided. There will be IPTV services as well as special services for gamers and streamers.

Telkomsel is known as a cellular operator, but its role in the internet sector is no less extensive. This cellular operator has a home internet service called Orbit Telkomsel.
This modern wifi-based internet service makes it easy for users to enjoy wireless or wireless connectivity. In addition, this service also gives customers the freedom to end and restart the service as they wish.
This Telkomsel orbit is more specifically for homes that have not been touched by wireless networks. This provider from Telkomsel uses a Wifi network that captures signals from cellular BTS. That is why Orbit does not provide unlimited quota services for its users.
On the other hand, Orbit Telkomsel uses the quota method as is usually used on cellular telephone networks. The speed offered starts from 15 to 50 Mbps. Another advantage of this Orbit is that there are no installation costs or equipment borrowing, because the costs are included in the modem. Interesting right? So feel free to choose the service you want.
The next provider is Oxygen, which may not be as popular as the previous provider. This Oxygen has not been in Indonesia for a long time, its launch was only carried out in 2015.
Even though it is quite new, the provider launched by PT Mora Telematika Indonesia already has quite a lot of customers. There are not many publications made by Oxygen indeed, but their marketing goes through word of mouth. The proof is that Oxygen retail has more than 70,000 customers, while its corporate customers reach more than 3,000.
Oxygen has advantages in networks that use super optical fiber, namely Gigabit Passive Optical Network or known as GPON. Fiber optic technology is able to distribute data very quickly. This speed can reach many places more efficiently, even reaching 1 Gbps.
The good news is that there is no additional cost for installation. However, if the cable exceeds 150 meters, it will be charged Rp 6,600 per meter. The speed offered also starts from 50 to 200 Mbps.
The ninth provider that is also recommended is Groovy. This service has been active in Indonesia for a long time, starting in 2000. The advantages offered are high speed using optical fiber.

However, this Groovy internet network service can only be enjoyed by those in the Greater Jakarta and Bandung areas, because it has not yet spread to all regions in Indonesia.
10. Indosat GIG 20 Mbps
The last home internet provider is Indosat GIG 20 Mbps. Just like Orbit Telkomsel, Indosat GIG is also a provider for cellular phones. However, there is also a service for home internet. With internet speeds starting at 20 Mbps, Indosat also applies very affordable prices.
To enjoy this service, you need to pay around IDR 280,000 per month. However, these costs do not include installation costs. If you want to do the first installation, you will be charged IDR 250,000 with 10% VAT.
Then there is still a modem rental fee of Rp. 40,000 and a fee for renting an STB with the same nominal value. So, if you want to install this Indosat GIG provider, please prepare funds for installation and also make a monthly deposit.
Things to Consider When Choosing a Provider
When you want to install a provider for your home, you have to consider several things. Why? Because not all providers, even those that are recommended, are suitable for installation in all homes. What are some things to consider? Here’s the answer:
1. Home Location
The first consideration is the location of your home. Because the installation location will affect the strength and stability of the Wifi signal. Even though many people currently need the internet, it should also be realized that internet services have not yet reached all regions in Indonesia. So, when choosing a provider to install, make sure that the internet network is installed in your area.
2. Internet Network Speed
Each provider will usually provide several internet packages. From that package you can determine the speed of the internet network. Don’t forget to adjust it to your needs. If it’s just for communication needs, then you can choose a medium speed. High speed can be selected if your needs are more important than that, such as to complete work or play games.
3. Consideration of Needs
The third thing after considering speed is necessity. Every house has different needs. This will usually also be adjusted to the number of family members. The more family members, of course, the more internet needs. Then if the need for browsing, opening applications, watching videos, or streaming is only done via Android, then you don’t need a large and expensive capacity Internet. So, just install the standard one.
4. Internet Service Fees and Prices
The final consideration is the price and cost required. This is of course comparable to the needs at home. If the need for internet is getting bigger, then the cost is also getting more expensive. For the price issue, you can see it on the internet packages offered by the provider of choice. The higher the capacity and speed, of course the more costs incurred. So, just adjust it to your abilities and needs at home.
So, those were the 10 recommendations for home internet providers that could be the right choice. If you want to do business via the internet, then try to read Gramedia’s book entitled Internet Marketing Attack Strategy or get it via a link.
