I'll be in Jakarta for two months and would like mobile internet for my laptop so I can get some work done...
Could anyone give me some (affordable) recommendation on this?
I would think one year subscriptions are the norm, but I could only use the internet during 2 months time...

If you buy your own modem, you can use IM2 (Indosat) for just two months if you like. No contract if you don't want to.

there are many options, many pre-paid package from different providers are available.
you can just directly go to places called 'grapari telkomsel' or 'galeri indosat' and the people there will help you.

Easy answer.
Buy a mobile dongle. It will cost between 500,000 and 1.2 million.
Just bang a SIM card inside and it will work. Get the dealer to register it for you.

I use IM2 but that costs to set up. Worth it over time but maybe better for IM3 or maybe XL if little use and only over a couple of months.

The dongles are all bought unlocked so you can use it back in your home country with your local sim card.

Correction to my above.
I've now seen dongles at just over Rp300,000
