Based on data at APJII, international traffic last year reached 4 gigabytes and it is expected to grow to 8-10 gigabytes this year.
APJII said part of the cost components that make up internet tariff is not reduced citing backhaul, local loop or last mile are more expensive than internet tariff components.
APJII also raised question about a number of cost burdens that have to be paid to Telkom and competition in the prices of internet service between ISP and Telkom as the operator of network and at the same time as a service provider.

Heru Nugroho, Secretary General of APJII, commented, "The Indonesian Internet community has worked hard with ISC and APNIC to make the first root server installation in Indonesia a reality.
