Well, i'm sure many of you have known already about this internet package service which is offered by Telkomsel, if you're an Indonesian of course. This provider pledges fast (maybe they mean "the fastest") data transmition for those who use their packages, like one that i know is Package Flash Unlimited. Yet, you gotta be aware that not every place will get that "the fastest data transmition" cuz it's likely only for those who're in a big city. Even worse, it "may" be available only in Jakarta, or may be even much more worse it's available only in a specific area in Jakarta. Some times ago when i lived in Jakarta, i ever tried Simpati, which is a provider belongs to Telkomsel. And you know what, i got only 3-5 kbps download speed that would take about 3-4 minutes to download file 1Mb in measurement. So i got a question: "Is it kind of 3G network? Or maybe edge?". Oh, realy.. It's not. I say it was an unkown network, not yet named, though the fact the indicator showed 3G was running on my phone. That was realy realy *uck. I hate that provider more than i hate every guys who ever hurt me.
True, that is my experience with Simpati some times ago in Jakarta. Fortunately, now in the village where i currently live in, the signal is getting, getting, getting even worse. Now it could take about 20 minutes for 1Mb file. I hell love it.. :)

Yes, you read it correctly, 50.000 for a-year-unlimited-access. Not 50.000 a week, not 200.000 a month, not even 1.500.000 a year. Read here: Internet Unlimited From Three. Have fun my friend.. :)
