Indonesia's largest cellular operator PT Telkomsel disclosed that its customer base had increased to a total of 55 million numbers as of end of July from 48 million by the end of last year, Antara reported.

Telkomsel president Kiskenda Suriahardja explained that the increasing number of people using cellular phones would eventually help reduce digital gaps between those in the urban and rural areas.

Despite the increase in customers, Telkomsel recorded a decline in revenue in the first semester of this year to Rp2.2. trillion ($240,000) from Rp2.45 trillion in the same period of last year. "That's the consequence of tariff cuts, as a result of the government's decision to reduce the interconnection cost," Suriahardja said.

Telkomsel is a subsidiary of state telecommunication firm PT Telkom.
