Actually, MacroAd’s free WiFi service has been around since 2018 at various public locations such as the Jabodetabek commuterline KRL station, traditional markets, and long-distance train stations on the island of Java.

However, in line with the operation of the fiber optic network from Surge’s subsidiary, Weave, which is along the Java Island Railway, Surge has increased the speed of MacroAd’s free WiFi service on the Jakarta-Bogor commuterline train route to 1 Gbps.

Surge assessed that the traffic for KRL storage in January 2022 continued to increase by almost 50% compared to the previous year. In addition, based on internal macroAd data and the Indonesian Commuter Train (KCI), the fastest waiting time at the station is 20-30 minutes with more than 60% of passengers accessing cellphones while at the station.

Therefore, Surge and MacroAd hope that the increased internet network speed can make it easier and improve community connectivity in carrying out their daily activities.
