Indonesia - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Indonesia still faces some big challenges if it is to successfully continue the building of the telecommunications infrastructure required to support a large population spread over what is a uniquely complex geography. Continued progress in the development of the telecom sector will need further government action on restructuring the industry.

Indonesia is ranked 17th on the Asian Telecoms Maturity Index with an Index score of 33. Indonesia is also ranked 10th in the ‘Market Challengers” category out of 16 countries. (BuddeComm’s “Asian Telecoms Maturity Index”, is an index (on a scale between 0 and 100) that measures and ranks the relative maturity of the telecoms industry in all of the 34 countries in Asia.) Compared to other Asian nations, Indonesia has very low fixed line and fixed broadband penetration, high mobile penetration and moderate mobile broadband penetration.

Whilst broadband users have grown on back of a surge in mobile broadband subscriptions and smartphone sales, fixed broadband connections remain relatively low, despite broadband development having accelerated.

One of the particularly big challenges for the country has been to attract foreign investment.

Key developments:

  • Indonesia is ranked 17th on the Asian Telecoms Maturity Index with an Index score of 33.
  • Compared to other Asian nations, Indonesia has very low fixed line and fixed broadband penetration and high mobile penetration.
  • The fixed line market (wireless and wireline) continues to suffer setbacks with a rapidly declining subscriber base.
