Telkomsel Provides Free WiFi Service to Baliís Universities

(11/2/2012) Telkomsel Mobile Campus 2012 program is providing free WiFi service to 23 institutions of higher education in Bali. A total of 212 hot spots for WiFi access offering high-speed Internet access are now in operation at private and public universities and academies across the island.

According to Kompas.com, included among the schools enjoying the free WiFi services are Udayana University, the Denpasar Tourism Academy, IKIP Saraswati, IHDN and Tabanan University.

Telkomsel’s WiFi Flash Zone service will provide fast, efficient and free Internet service to most places of tertiary education in Bali.

“We are aware that data services represent a basic need of our customers, especially university students. Students represent a market segment that is always hungry for all forms of information. In keeping with the momentum created by the celebration of ‘Youth Pledge Day’ (Sumpah Pemuda), we are consitently trying to meet the information needs of the younger generation in the digital age,” said Hasan Kurdi, head of Sales & Customer Care for Bali and Nusa Raya for Telkomsel.

The provision of WiFi Flash Zone services on Bali campuses was accomplished through the signing of a note of understanding between Telkomsel and STIKOM Bali and Mahasaraswati University at Telkomsel’s Denpasar office on Monday, October 29, 2012.

In addition to free WiFi service, Telkomsel is also preparing efficient communication packets that will enable students to communicate without cost by telephone and SMS with other members of their academic community. SMS broadcast services will also keep students up-to-date on campus activities.
