Among leaders in the telecom space in Indonesia is Indosat Ooredoo, which has a rich history of more than 55 years. Founded in 1967, the telecommunications provider is owned by Ooredoo Hutchison Asia. The company is responsible for not only providing wireless network services for mobiles but also broadband internet services for residential areas.

As of the year 2018, the company had more than 58 million subscribers on its platform and its overall market share was 16.5 per cent in the country. If you have been unsatisfied with the mobile services provided by Indosat Ooredoo lately, then it is high time you consider switching your carrier and opt for a better service provider. Switching your mobile carrier can not only help you experience better signal coverage in your office or residential area but also enjoy various introductory offers as a new customer.

However, before you look for your way out of Indosat’s network services, the company has suggested tips and tricks for you to try out, especially if you are facing poor signal strength. Firstly, you can try re-downloading your mobile APN (Access Point Names) settings. Secondly, you can try restarting your mobile phone or switching the ‘airplane mode’ on and then off.

Additionally, you also have to look out for other electronic devices causing interference with your mobile, such as computer speakers, WiFi routers or any other device. In case any of the above-mentioned solutions do not turn out to be fruitful, then you can go ahead and register your cancellation or deactivation request for your number.
