Telkom Indonesia, Indosat Ooredoo, and XL Axiata, will focus on improving network quality and offering attractive data plans for mobile-first customers.
Ooredoo Group, which holds a 65% stake in operator PT Indosat Tbk that has rebranded itself into Indosat Ooredoo, said it plans to invest 30% of its group annual revenue into its Indonesian operator over the next three years.
Indosat Ooredoo recorded a net profit of Rp217.2 billion (US$16.3 million) in Q1 2016, compared with a loss of Rp455.6 billion (US$34.2 million) in the same period last year.
Not satisfied with having taken a big chunk of Indonesia’s total mobile money transactions, Indosat Ooredoo will be pushing the service even more so this year.
A national plan by the Government and telecommunications operators in Indonesia to stave off a ‘foreign invasion’ by actively encouraging local OTT apps has got off to a slow start, with the three having been approved only after three months.
The Indonesian Government is cracking the whip on Internet companies that have been providing their services in the country but have not been paying taxes, with industry observers saying it is mere protectionism.
