INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - In an effort to increase broadband penetration and support the vision of Digital Indonesia 2020, Indosat Ooredoo has just announced the successful completion of the 2.1 GHz radio frequency rearrangement process faster than scheduled by the government. The Jakarta-1 and Central Java-3 clusters, the last cluster of rearranged frequency bands, were completed on Tuesday (12/2). The completion of the restructuring of the frequency band was witnessed last night by the Ministry of Communications and Informatics, Balmon Monitoring Center (Balmon) Spektrum Frequency Indonesia and Chief of Technology and Information Officer Ooredoo Group, Ahmad Abdulaziz Al Neama.

Indosat Ooredoo accelerated this frequency rearrangement project and completed it faster than the schedule targeted by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology on March 1, 2018. Indosat Ooredoo became the first operator to initiate a frequency rearrangement process that began on 21 November 2017.

"Indosat Ooredoo is committed to accelerating the process of rearranging the 2.1 GHz radio frequency band as part of our commitment to meeting regulatory obligations, succeeding government programs and accelerating the utilization of radio frequency bands for the public and customers, as these radio frequency bands have limited resources to optimize their utilization. We hope that our accelerated initiative will encourage the acceleration of 2.1 GHz radio frequency band arrangement as a whole," said Dejan Kastelic, Chief Technology and Information Officer of Indosat Ooredoo.

Dejan added that the frequency rearrangement project will benefit the nation as a whole, not only providing a better experience for cellular subscribers, but also having a large socio-economic impact.

"Rearranging the frequency band will stimulate broadband penetration in Indonesia, which will impact on increasing national GDP, better community welfare as it provides them with access to information and market access through technology. This is the core of how the telecommunications sector can improve the socio-economics of a country," he added.

Acceleration of the project will also accelerate the process of rearranging the frequency band nationally and will help operators to improve their customer experience. This band re-arrangement project is divided into 24 clusters nationally and implemented gradually by operators with a target completion on April 25, 2018.

With the completion of this frequency band reorganization, Indosat Ooredoo has helped realize Indonesia's vision of becoming the Largest Digital Economy Country in Southeast Asia by 2020. The government estimates to earn more than US $ 130 billion with annual growth of 50% of online businesses in which the telecommunications sector is the backbone of this industry.
