Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration Minister Marwan Jafar says the government is ready to provide an Internet connection to more than 5,000 villages in the country.
To anticipate the project, Marwan urged village heads to build their information technology skills so that they could communicate online with their villagers.
'All village heads must be knowledgeable about the Internet,' Marwan said as quoted by tribunnews.com.
The Indonesian Internet Service Providers Association (APJII) reported that the total number of Internet users ' both fixed and mobile ' in the country had reached about 60 million by 2012, while the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) reported that a fraction of the 58 percent of Internet users were connected via their cell phones.
Earlier this month, Communications and Information Minister Rudiantara said existing Internet infrastructure was ready for the implementation of e-government.
