Fast growth in the Internet-using population has powered Indonesia to be one of the fastest-growing digital economies in South East Asia. Adults with Internet access increased more than three-fold from 13 in 2011 to 51% in 2019. 49% of Indonesian adults are still not connected to the Internet and a significant digital divide persists across various spatial, economic, and social dimensions. Indonesians in the top 10% of the income distribution are 5 times more likely to be connected to the internet than those in the lowest 10%.

Indonesians who are connected to the internet use it quite intensively, with communication, social media and leisure applications dominating usage. On average, Indonesians spend around 6 hours online, with younger and more educated groups more digitally engaged.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, digital technology has the potential to create new jobs for 20-45 million workers in Indonesia, according to the Indonesian National Development Planning Minister and Head of the National Planning and Development Agency (Bappenas) Suharso Monoarfa.

Although the accelerated adoption of internet-enabled services during the pandemic is likely to boost the growth of the digital economy, the benefits of such development could be unequal.
