Latest Columns Indosat Ooredoo
The corporate performance of Indosat Ooredoo, one of the largest telecommunication networks and services providers in Indonesia, is expected to improve in the years ahead on the back of Indonesia's growing smartphone usage, rising data traffic and the company's internal improvements. At the start of 2016 Indosat Ooredoo had nearly 70 million cellular subscribers in Indonesia. The company is a subsidiary of international telecommunications company Ooredoo that is headquartered in Doha (Qatar).
Indosat Ooredoo, Indonesia's second-largest telecommunication networks and services providers, is expected to post net profit in 2016 after three straight years of net losses. Supported by its new 4G/LTE network - now available in 27 Indonesian cities (and 16 more cities are targeted to be added to this network in 2016) - the company's performance should improve. Moreover, lower US dollar-denominated debt will also contribute positively to Indosat Ooredoo's corporate earnings. At end-2015 the company had 69.7 million mobile phone subscribers.
