Number of internet users in Indonesia from 2015 to 2022 (in millions)

Indonesia: number of internet users 2015-2022 This statistic shows the number of internet users in Indonesia from 2015 to 2022. In 2017, 104.96 million people were accessing the internet in Indonesia. This figure is projected to grow to 133.39 million in 2021. With over 104 million internet users, Indonesia is one of the biggest online markets worldwide. As of March 2017, online penetration in the country stood at only slightly over 50 percent. Popular online activities include mobile messaging and social media. The most popular social network in Indonesia is Facebook with 48 percent of the population using the platform. Indonesia is also one of the strongest markets for LINE's chat app. Mobile internet usage is undergoing double-digit growth rates and currently stands at close to 30 percent among the population. Indonesia was listed as “partly free” in the Freedom on the Net index, which places the country ahead of less free Asian online markets such as China, Thailand or Malaysia but behind Japan, South Korea and the Philippines. This rating is due to blocked political and social content as well as various restrictions and violations of user rights, most notably through the governmental passing of the Law on Information and Electronic Transactions (ITE Law). The ITE law holds strong penalties such as prison sentences and high fines for anybody convicted of online defamation charges. This law has also been applied to blog posts and Facebook comments and has lead to self-censorship among online writers and internet users as well as an increasingly tense online atmosphere.
