secretly preparing a
special internet
proxy service that
will provide more
secure access to
Internet services to
Nokia phone users.
This is one part of
the Nokia strategy
for achieving its
vision of one billion

the internet via
mobile phone.

Information on the
internet proxy
service plan was
revealed by Mary
McDowell, executive
vice president of
Nokia Mobile Phones

broadband Internet
penetration in
Indonesia is still so
low that many are
entering the first
internet service via
mobile. One of them

networking services
like Facebook and
Twitter. To facilitate
access to these
services previously
Nokia has been
working with mobile
operators to provide
a data service plan,
where users can
freely access the service the daily cost.

"We are also
conducting a pilot
project to proxy
through the OVI
service which will
begin commercial
browser with OVI
latest browsers. I
think that Indonesia
will become a key
market for it. The
service will be
integrated in the
phone made​​us," said
When asked further,
whether the server
to the proxy service
will be in Indonesia,
Mary said the plan so
far there are servers
that are used
overseas. However,

whether a problem if
the proxy server is
not in Indonesia?

is a plan to put some
proxy servers in
different locations in
