Sim Card with proper 4G coverage


We will be staying at Bintan Lagoon Resort.. can someone tell me which local Indonesia telecom (prepaid simcard provider) has good 4G/3G coverage around that area?

I need a local sim card to connect my laptop via mobile hotspot (because we will be moving around near that area)

and when we reach the ferry terminal i hope i can get a local simcard with data?

1. Re: Sim Card with proper 4G coverage

as far as i know, 4G in Bintan is still work in progress at this point

some areas may already have it, some may not... not sure about Bintan Lagoon though, as it is a bit isolated

perhaps you could contact the hotel and ask them?

there are 5 mobile operators in Bintan, and another issue would be to know which ones cover Bintan Lagoon

anyway, all hotels in Bintan provide a decent free wifi to their guests, good enough for basic internet access

for applications requiring better bandwidth, guests can usually buy a premium access voucher at the reception
