Indosat Ooredoo Expands Networks in Remote Areas of Indonesia

This network expansion coincides with the construction of 119 USO Base Transceiver Station (BTS) with the Provision and Financing Center for Telecommunications and Informatics (BP3TI), to support the government to accelerate the development of the national economy in the 3T region.

The expansion of Indosat Ooredo network aims to provide telecommunication access, open opportunities and economic potential, as well as realize the government's vision in building the digital economy for the community.

"We deeply appreciate the government that has given trust to Indosat Ooredoo to be part of the USO program implementers," said President Director & CEO of Indosat Ooredoo , Joy Wahyudi, in his official statement on Thursday (29/3/2018).

According to Joy, this is in line with the mission and commitment of the company to continue to build telecommunication infrastructure, including in remote areas to provide equal rights for communities in the region.

"They can enjoy telecommunication services, build a social and economic life, as well as catch up from other regions," he continued.

In addition, Joy said, the development of telecommunication infrastructure also aims to maintain the sovereignty and unity of Indonesia, especially in the foremost and outer regions, which borders neighboring countries.

One of them is in Wayagung Village, Krayan Sub-district, North Kalimantan, which borders with Malaysia, because the BTS device must be taken by plane, followed by off-road car , then transported by buffalo for one day to reach the site.

Meanwhile, Indosat Ooredoo contributed US $ 1.8 trillion in the last six years. The contribution represents 1.25 percent of the company's gross revenues.

"Indosat Ooredoo has always strived to play an active role in the implementation of the USO program with BP3TI," explained Joy.

The USO, also known as Public Service Obligations (KPU), is a telecommunications business contributor by contributing 1.25 percent of its operating revenues. These funds are deposited to the government every quarter.

BP3TI in 2017 provides trust to Indosat Ooredoo to build USO BTS of 119 sites in 7 provinces in Indonesia.

The seven provinces are Riau Islands (Anambas and Natuna Islands), North Kalimantara (Nunukan, Malinau), Central Kalimantan (Kapuas), West Kalimantan (Sanggau, Ketapang, Kapuas Hulu), East Nusa Tenggara (Alor, Belu, East Manggarai, Mataru ), Maluku (West Southeast Maluku), and North Maluku (West Halmahera, North Halmahera).
