Event Summary


Indonesia with a population of nearly 250 million requires substantial investments in domestic ICT infrastructure and international connectivity to meet the strong growing demand from the private and public sectors. 

Over the past decade the country has seen dramatic improvements in telecommunications availability; technology awareness and usage; investment in digital infrastructure by both the government and private sector players; regulatory oversight; and development planning. New technologies require an ICT infrastructure with sufficient capacity. 

In the Masterplan for Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia's Economic Development ( MP3EI), the Indonesian government aims to accelerate the realisation of becoming a developed country through the development of its vital infrastructure such as the construction of transportation routes, information and communication technology (ICT) for improved welfare, healthcare and education. 

Taking the right measures, considering the actual international development and best practice experiences in the global ICT sector, Indonesia has a realistic chance to strengthen its national ICT sector in the coming years and so play an equal role in the very competitive Asian and global markets. 

National Development Plans 

The Indonesian government is pushing to strengthen their national connectivity to balance economy and and infrastructure developments through their long-term and mid-term National Development Plans.

The Ministry of Communication and Information Technology recently laid out their ICT development targets in the National Mid Term plan from 2015 – 2019 to develop a well-connected ICT government network: 

2014-2019 Indonesia Broadband Plan

‍2014-2019 Indonesia Broadband Plan

Under the Indonesia Broadband Plan (IBP), the government is working to ensure high-speed fixed-line connectivity across the country, alongside the mobile data services offered by mobile operators.

The Indonesian government launched a high-speed internet initiative to boost economic growth and competitiveness throughout of the nation to support the improvement of human development and to safeguard the sovereignty of the nation. 

This plan defines broadband development in Indonesia and sets the strategy and major milestones for the coming years.

‍Palapa Ring Programme

Here's what the Indonesian Government had to say:

The results are in line with the increasing concern on digital security among domestic ICT providers and end-users alike as levels of connectivity across Indonesia improves. 

These areas of challenges also resonate well with the federal government’s plans to  to spend more than US$420 billion on infrastructure projects including telecommunications to spur the growing momentum of digital city transformations and ensure long-term progress is maintained for smart city initiatives.
