Fixed broadband penetration in Indonesia remains relatively low mainly due to a limited number of fixed lines and the dominance of the mobile platform.
4G mobile services offering mobile broadband is now relatively advanced in Indonesia and act as direct substitute to fixed line broadband and acts as an inhibitor for further fixed broadband rollouts. Mobile broadband subscribers have grown rapidly over the past five years in Indonesia.
Not only is wireless-based mobile broadband helping to get more people online; it is also bypassing the problem of inferior telecommunications infrastructure that has been impeding fixed broadband expansion.
The fixed broadband market has grown slightly over the past five years from a very small base. Over the next five years to 2022 strong growth is expected to continue grow moderately from this very small base.

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.
Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.
The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.
Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
