JAKARTA, Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- The increase of Internet users in Indonesia triggers growth of technology companies as the users need Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL), 3G, computers and wireless equipments to access Internet, an official told Xinhua in exclusive interview on Wednesday.

Estella Tan, sales director of D-Link International Pte. Ltd., a Singapore-based technology company, said that in the past three years, Internet users in Indonesia have been increasing very fast, with the support of government's technology friendly policies, widespread social networking media and emergence of affordable smart phones.

"Growth is very big. Internet brought Indonesians to another level (of life). Now they don't just read newspaper or magazines. They access data and information from everywhere with their cellular phones. That makes technology companies grow faster than before," said Tan.

She said that the Indonesian government has made Internet usage more popular by implementing Internet friendly policies such as lowering cost of Internet.

"Three years ago, Internet was very expensive. Now, Internet is very affordable, encouraging people to use Internet in their daily life," she said.

Tan also said that widespread social networking media help a lot in popularizing Internet among people.
