Indonesia Telecommunications Report

BMI View: Following the launch of LTE in December 2014, Indosat and Telkomsel have launched extensive capital expenditure plans to expand their 4G networks. Although the outlook for the technology will be limited by the low spending power of most Indonesians and the high price of LTE tariffs and smartphones, it represents a step forward in the development of the market. Further to this, Indonesia seems poised for strong fibre broadband growth , as both the government and the private sector are planning to invest heavily into this technology.

Increasing saturation of the mobile market and declining voice revenues will force Indonesia's largest telecoms operators to focus on the development of next-generation fixed and mobile data networks. The country's mobile operators are accelerating their tower outsourcing and managed services strategies in order to reduce operating costs. This is a sensible move considering their weak bottom line performances.

Key Data

  • The mobile sector grew by 6.3% y-o-y in 2014, bringing the penetration rate to 127.7%.

  • Mobile ARPUs continued their downwards trend in 2014, with market weighted average blended ARPU falling by 9.8% for the year.

  • Indonesian wireless broadband operator Internux, which operates under the 'Bolt! Super 4G' brand, has added 750,000 subscribers following commercial launch in Q413. In August 2014, the operator launched the country's first two 4G LTE smartphones on an active commercial network. The company claims that more than 90% of the operator's broadband subscribers are using Mi-Fi personal hotspot devices.

Key Trends And Developments

All large operators are making efforts to expand their LTE networks. Telkomsel plans to invest IDR12.9trn (USD993.3mn) in 2015 to expand its LTE network coverage. The operator aims to control a 50% share of the LTE market, and will deploy new base transceiver stations across Indonesia to achieve this. PT Indosat plans to invest up to IDR7.5trn (USD581.25mn) in capital...
