Not so much ... I wonder: are you fishing perhaps? This is Tempo Online

speaking. (Reading the article is also--agreed--not always clear to understand
what is peculiar to Indonesia vs. what is general; moreover, Indonesia is
going to introduce a *great firewall* next year ...)

But qualitatively, they may not be that wrong.

I ignore how the business goes, but I remember to have read in Singapore of
astronomical *NETTO* sums made a month by pimps [in Singapore].

4.2 million sites make less than 1 USD a second per site. I don't know how
many hits *successful* sites have and how the *administration* goes in the

There are to pay: hosting, ==HEAVY== *commissions* on the left and on the
right for sure [Indonesia is the country with the largest Muslim population
in the world: you could drink Whiskey and Vodka and be *entertained* even
in Aceh too--paying of course]: protection from the police, politicians,
malavitosi, *insurances*, indemnifications for the ISPs etc. And so on ...
Internet-expenses-in-general inclusive [in Indonesia there are generalized
power outages daily since months ... up to 7-8-9-10 hours of blackout 7/24].

I guess that the *material* shown will be specialized ... meaning that it will
be *Asian* [and made in Asia, not in the Netherlands, U.S. or Switzerland],
not Russian nor Nordic. That will have a price too. They will then need some
certificates, or cellular phone infrastructure, for doing *business*--I would
include the latter too, the business extra [there are enough *bapak* in
Indonesia, a country of perhaps 230+ million, with MUCH more money to spend
than you have: Singapore's #1 foreign flat owners are Indonesian, I believe,
ethnic Chinese ones inclusive of course] in the balance.

I would add the *amortization* of the hardware--desktops, notebooks,
whatever--and of the time wasted by the "consumers."

3000, 300 ... even 30 USD/s [or who knows, 3 million a day] would still be

Could it be world-, or continent wide? ... but it makes even limited
difference, eventually; you are missing the point: to be, say, "drown, hanged
and quartered" [I am quoting a movie based a popular book] makes little
difference after stage one of the series has been carried out.

And *uncertainty [Heisenberg] principle* verified ... *interesting* in a
sense! For a couple of correct observations you have made you have written
some compensatory idiocies on a country which you clearly do not know.
