Local Internet Access:
Several Indonesian service providers maintain local telephone access numbers in Bali. However, it is difficult for non-residents to open their own account. One reason is that the Indonesian ISPs are not interested in having clients for only one or two weeks, others are that their customer service staff does hardly speak any English, and all documentation including system configuration details is written in Bahasa Indonesia only.
Since 1999 TELKOM is also offering Internet access without any registration or contract. Just dial 080-989-999, key in the user name "telkomnet@instan" and the password "telkom" and you're on-line. Rate is Rp. 165 per minute. For further information visit the TELKOMNET web site or call 147. However, keep in mind that some hotels may charge 4,000 Rupiah per minute if you use this 080-number!
