Founded in 1989, XL Axiata was the first private cellular company in Indonesia. Headquartered in Jakarta, it is currently the second-largest telecom company in the country with a total user base of more than 55 million. XL Axiata offers its network services across 460 cities including regions such as Bali, Java, Lombok, Sumatra, Sulawesi and Kalimantan. As a result, customers can obtain both 3G and 4G LTE network reception across Indonesia, with 5G rollout currently in the plans at a later stage.
Even though XL Axiata has enjoyed a remarkable journey over the last 33 years, customer satisfaction still leaves much to be desired for. One of the major customer grievances regarding XL Axiata’s network quality is its poor signal strength. So, if you are someone who is residing in rural areas, away from the major cities of Indonesia, internet speeds will be low and the overall network reliability will be less than stellar.
Additionally, the plan prices charged by XL Axiata, even though economical, are similar to its rival network providers, who provide much better network services for the money you spend. Therefore, it should not come as a surprise that if you are someone who prioritises reliability and better services above everything else, then it makes sense to move away from XL Axiata and opt for alternative mobile network service providers in Indonesia.
However, the good news is that – cancelling or deactivating your XL Axiata number is easy.
