The Head of the Badung Communication and Information Agency, I Nyoman Wiranata, confirmed that a total of five routers were installed to provide free internet access to beach visitors.

This program was initiated to help all visitors utilize the PeduliLindungi tracing app, which is necessary to access the beach.

“A private internet service provider sponsored this program to support the implementation of prevention protocols, especially the PeduliLindungi utilization. With this, visitors do not have an excuse to not scan the QR code before entering the Kuta beach area,” Wiranata said Thursday (2/12).

He explained that the WIFI connection is available along the five main entrances of Kuta Beach.

“People can access this free internet connection at the five different main entrances: the boat parking area, the Kuta art market, Kuta Beach Bentar Temple, Kuta Village Temple, and in front of the Kuta Beach Office area,” Wiranata added.

Meanwhile, the Senator of the Badung region, I Gusti Anom Gumanti, appreciated the program, as it will potentially revive tourism in the Kuta area. “We really appreciate the concern of some people for the Kuta area, and we hope that this program will revive our tourism sector and inspire other areas to do the same thing,” Gumanti concluded.

Dear President Jokowi the Balinese people are in desperate need of help from your government, until know they have received virtually no help from the Balinese government unless someone has told you lies about financial support they have been giving to the Balinese people because there has been none, it has been nearly 20 months since the start of the pandemic and our Balinese friends have received a tray of eggs , rice , cooking oil and 10 yams this is for 2 adults and 3 children and nothing else. They are in desperate need of your help Mr President please please help them before itโ€™s too late for the island to recover and itโ€™s people to regain their dignity. All is not lost so long as they receive the HELP they deserve considering the amount of money that has been generated over many years for Indonesia.

As for the internet at Kuta ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ what a joke . Just like the 20,000 international tourists coming in November . Governor Koster you should resign.

@Randy, I thought you would comment on what I had written, what you hear hey your unbelievable you really have no idea what has been happening in Bali to itโ€™s people . You say that people have found jobs not sitting around a few may have but 1/2 million people have lost their livelihoods and they have had no support . What sort of government subsidies are you talking about they havenโ€™t gone to the people they have gone to businesses to try and stop a total collapse. The only thing youโ€™ve got right is about is about the religious ceremonies and funerals but they are Hindu are those things come first for them and I know that many people have sold some of their possessions to pay for these types of expenses.

@Paul Morris, you keep saying that... Many others are not lazy to sit around. They have found work during this pandemic from what I hear. There are charitable organizations from elsewhere outside Bali and the government subsidies. Vaccination programs are free for the people in Indonesia.

If traditional ceremonies in Bali has kept on going despite govt covid warnings then certainly they have money to spend for religious purposes and funerals.

Btw when people say something the same thing over and over again then people may just believe it and take it for granted. Just like in recent Western politics we have heard and seen.
