Wireless Internet

In Australia using Telstra i use an external antenna, a modem, and prepaid card to get the internet,while off the coast for Weather charts forecasts etc.
In April I am setting off from Thursday island (Northern Australia) for Meurake Indonesia(24 hours) then following the coast, Dobo , Tual, Ambon, Celebes etc in route to the Phillipines.

Mark J, Cat man Do and Daddle have suggested getting an Indonesian sim card and prepaid, at the first entry port (meurake) to enable Internet connectivity.
We will be Island hopping most of the time, reasonably close to the coast. We have motor and sail.
Can anyone suggest a website giving coverage by the Indonesian system.
I am trying to avoid the purchase of a Sat phone/oceans Compression etc.

Indonesia does not have coverage maps like telstra in Australia, does anyone have experience with coverage issues in Eastern Indonesia.
I do hear they have a wonderful service and wide coverage but because of competitive issues won't publish it.?
