- According to content management service HootSuite and social media marketing agency We Are Social in the report “Digital 2020”, Internet users in Indonesia have reached 175,4 million, with penetration at 64%. This means as much as 64% of the total Indonesian population of 272,1 million, is connected to the Internet. This number has since increased from the year 2019, which was 17%, or approximately 25 million people.
- There is a sudden increase in the use of internet and data services, especially during the holidays, which indicates the seasonality of increased telecom data center utilization in the country. For instance, three telecommunications internet data traffic rose 57% on the first day of Eid al-Fitr 2020, followed by Telkomsel with an increase of 49.8%, and Indosat Ooredoo by 27%.
- Businesses have also started adopting data-intensive applications, such as IoT, data analytics, and artificial intelligence. This translates to the surge of data exchanged and transferred and increased traffic.
- Indonesia is giving a strong competition to Singapore as the hotspot for the data center in Asia. Increased investments by companies, such as Google, Alibaba, and Amazon, reflect a growing interest in Indonesia as an alternative to Singapore, which was traditionally the focus of cloud service investment because of its good fiber connectivity.
- In April 2019, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced the launch of a new cloud region in Indonesia, based in Greater Jakarta, with the new area set to comprise three availability zones. Last year, Alibaba Cloud launched a second data center in Indonesia just ten months after its first one, to double its local capacity. As it stands, Alibaba Cloud is the only global public cloud platform with regional data centers in Indonesia.

With a penetration rate of over 88%, Hootsuite indicated that YouTube was the most used social network in Indonesia.
- Indonesia’s current e-commerce market is like China’s online marketplace beginnings, with a large pool of entrepreneurial sellers providing goods purchased mainly based on social media recommendations. Moreover, the country is Asia’s foremost mobile-first nation, with one of the highest mobile-Facebook usage rates. This is also one of the major driving factors for the growth of data centers.
