The Indonesian government has already blocked 100.9 million prepaid SIM cards in the 1-31 March 2018 period as mobile phone users failed to re-register their prepaid phone numbers with a valid national identification card (KTP) and family card (KK). Meanwhile, 305 million SIM cards were re-registered during the period (considering many Indonesians use more than one SIM card the figure is higher than the total number of Indonesians).

The Indonesian government said it will ban the use of satellites that have exceeded their life expectancy in order to avoid incidents such as happened with the Telkom-1 satellite. Last month millions of Indonesians could not use ATMs (for withdrawing money and conducting various payments) for several days as the Telkom-1 satellite, which is used by several banks in Indonesia for data transmission, suffered technical difficulties.
American multinational technology company Apple Inc soon has to realize 40 percent of its total USD $44 million worth of investment plans in Indonesia if it wants to keep distributing its iPhone 7 on the Indonesian market.

However, 40 percent of the total is required to be invested in the first year (which is 2017).
Indonesian Communication & Information Minister Rudiantara informed on Wednesday (02/11) that American multinational technology company Apple Inc. - famous for designing, developing, and selling consumer electronics, computer software, and online services - will start building its second-biggest research and development facility in Indonesia somewhere in 2017.

Indonesia's Business Competition Supervisory Commission (KPPU) has ordered telecommunication operators Indosat Ooredoo and XL Axiata to provide more details concerning the establishment of their joint venture One Indonesia Synergy. The KPPU suspects that both companies are involved in cartel practices, more specifically the companies are suspected to have breached Law No. 5/1999 on the Ban on Monopolistic Practices and Unfair Business Competition in terms of price fixing, market allocation and output restriction.
Another sign that the mobile phone market of Indonesia is saturated is that the number of (active) mobile phone numbers has only grown by 1 percent between the end of 2015 and the end of Q1-2016. Previously, we reported that the attractiveness of Indonesia's telecommunications market has been weakened due to sharp competition between operators, slowing profit margins and a saturating voice and SMS services market. However, there remains room for growth in data services and value-added services given Indonesia's still relatively low smartphone penetration (as well as low Internet penetration).
One of Indonesia's priority infrastructure projects in the 2016-2019 period is the Palapa Ring project. This project, involving an undersea fiber-optic cable network that stretches across 13,000 kilometers and an onshore network of nearly 22,000 kilometers, aims to provide fast broadband Internet to Indonesians in both the urban and rural areas. The project is the first government-to-business cooperation scheme within Indonesia's telecommunication sector that utilizes the so-called "availability payment method".
Good news for smartphone manufacturers in Indonesia. Based on a survey conducted by Advan, MARS Research Specialist, and telecommunications expert Hasnul Suhaimi, the majority of Indonesian consumers replace their smartphone with a new one every two years, on average, as they want to own a newer model (with more attractive features and applications) or because they need to replace their damaged smartphone. Another - and obvious - conclusion of the survey was that Indonesian consumers want a high-quality smartphone at an affordable price.
State-controlled financial institution Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) is scheduled to launch its satellite - called BRIsat - at 03:30 am local Jakarta time on 9 June 2016 in Kourou (French Guiana). BRI President Asmawi Syam told reporters that the launch is a milestone, not only for BRI but for the global banking industry as BRI will become the first bank to operate its own communications satellite. In Indonesia, the world's largest archipelago, a satellite is more efficient than fiber optic. With the BRIsat the bank is able to reach (potential) customers in the remote areas.
