The Bali provincial government has decided to turn off internet connection services during the upcoming Day of Silence celebration.
The Head of Communication, Informatics, and Statistics for the Bali Provincial Government, Gede Pramana, confirmed that the government would turn off mobile data and IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) for residents during the Day of Silence celebration on March 3.
“Just as the Day of Silence celebrations during the previous years, we will turn off mobile data and IPTV connections on March 3,” Pramana said on Sunday (27/2).
Pramana also explained that per the Communication and Informatics Minister’s Decree Number 2 Year 2022, they would implement this policy from 6:00 am on March 3 to 6:00 am on March 4.
Hospitals, police departments, military departments, fire departments, and the Disaster Management Agency can still access their mobile data during the implementation. Residents can also access the internet through fiber optics networks during the Day of Silence.
“People can still make a phone call and send messages with their regular connection. Also, internet providers with fiber-optic networks are still accessible, so people can get the services they might need,” Pramana concluded.
The Bali provincial government will send a message to all the residents concerning this policy so people can make preparations.
