In 2023, Indonesia had approximately 221 million internet users, with an internet penetration rate of 80% of the total population.

Over the previous year (2022 to 2023), the number of internet users in Indonesia increased by 10 million, representing a 5.2% growth rate. Despite this growth, a significant portion of the population—about 63.51 million people—remained offline at the beginning of 2023, indicating that approximately 23.0% of the population did not use the internet.

The forecast for 2028 is 245.9 million i.e. 85.6% of the population. 

These figures highlight both the substantial internet user base in Indonesia and the ongoing challenge of ensuring broader internet access and connectivity across the country. Efforts to expand digital infrastructure, promote digital literacy, and improve affordability of internet services can contribute to reducing the digital divide and fostering greater digital inclusion in Indonesia.

In Indonesia, the median mobile internet connection speed via cellular networks was 17.27 Mbps, showing an increase of 1.45 Mbps (9.2%) over the twelve months leading up to the start of 2023, according to Ookla's data. Meanwhile, the median fixed internet connection speed in Indonesia was 24.32 Mbps, experiencing a more substantial growth of 4.19 Mbps (20.8%) during the same period.

These statistics indicate improvements in both mobile and fixed internet speeds in Indonesia. The increase in internet speeds is beneficial for enhancing user experiences, supporting digital activities, and promoting the adoption of online services and applications. Continued efforts to expand and upgrade internet infrastructure will further contribute to advancing digital connectivity and inclusion across Indonesia.
