  • The Indonesian Internet Service Providers Association (APJII) has asked Kominfo to provide relief for their Telecommunications Rights Fee (BHP) payments and Universal Service Obligation (USO) contributions which are due in late April.
  • The Indonesian Telecommunications Services Providers Association (ATSI), too, has observed an increase in data traffic of around 10-15%, but notes that revenue is either flat of declining.
  • Despite this, Kominfo has instructed mobile operators to improve their services  by adding capacity and deploying additional base stations in high-traffic areas to support the government’s policy to study and work from home.
  • Kominfo Minister (Johnny G Plate) has asked mobile operators to expand free Internet to secondary school students  – Telkomsel, Indosat and XL Axiata have all began providing up to 30 GB of free mobile data to students, which can only be used to access e-learning platforms on the Ministry of Education and Culture’s portal.
