Bisnis, JAKARTA — Several cellular operators are actively expanding their fourth-generation (4G) wireless telecommunications services by augmenting the quantity of base transceiver stations across the nation.

Two operators actively expanding their signal receivers and transmitters or 4G base transceiver stations (BTS) are PT XL Axiata Tbk. (EXCL) and PT Indosat Tbk. (ISAT). President Director & CEO of XL Axiata Dian Siswarini reported that XL operated 163,106 BTS in the Q1 2024, with 66.6% being BTS equipped with 4G technology. She mentioned that the proportion of 4G BTS operated by XL Axiata increased by 220 basis points (bps) from the previous 63.4% in the Q1 2023.

She emphasized that the massive expansion of XL Axiata's 4G BTS was congruent with the surge in data traffic rates, which escalated by 18.4% year-on-year (YoY) in the Q1 2024 to 2,609 Petabytes (PB). Dian highlighted that the Q1 2024 marked a special period as the company achieved positive data revenue compared to the Q4 2023.

Dian mentioned that in terms of infrastructure, the company's BTS boasts a connectivity level with fiber optic networks of 62%. Fiberization is a modernization effort aimed at linking BTS via fiber lines, including regenerating BTS equipment.
