PT XL Axiata Tbk (formerly PT Excelcomindo Pratama Tbk), is an Indonesia-based mobile telecommunications services operator headquartered at Jakarta. It is the second largest mobile telecommunications company in Indonesia. The operator's coverage includes Java, Bali, and Lombok as well as the principal cities in and around Sumatra, Kalimantan and Sulawesi. XL offers data communication, broadband Internet, mobile communication and 3G services over GSM 900 and GSM 1800 networks.
Initially, XL provided cellular mobile telephony services using the GSM 900 technology. A few years after launching services, the company was awarded a license for implementing a DCS 1800 network, and to operate an ISP and VoIP service. In 2006, XL obtained a 3G license, which services launched in September of the same year.
At the end of 2010, the company had more than 22,000 BTS towers across Indonesia. XL is the second largest mobile network operator in Indonesia, with a subscriber's strength of 55.1 million users.
Excelcomindo was established on October 6, 1989 under the name of PT Grahametropolitan Lestari and originally was a trading and general services company. XL became the first private mobile services operator in the country, starting commercial operations on October 8, 1996. In 2009, XL was bought by the Axiata Group which caused a change of logos. The XL letters were made blue (the blue and green version was also used), and an Axiata tag was added on to the logo. On October 28, 2014, XL launched the new logo with the launch of Real Mobile 4G LTE network service. On October 5, 2016, to commemorate XL's 20th anniversary, XL changed its logo colour from yellow and green to blue and green, similar to the colour in the first XL logo.
Original XL logo used from October 8, 1996 until June 25, 2004.
