Indonesian telecoms operator PT Indosat, a unit of Qatar-based Ooredoo Group, has launched a new network to provide its customers with faster mobile broadband access. Dubbed ‘IM3 Super Internet Service’ and running on the carrier’s UMTS 900MHz network, Indosat will offer its subscribers packaged mobile broadband services with stronger signals, both outdoor and indoor, as well as delivering wider network coverage and faster internet access. The launch of IM3 Super Internet will initially cover Bali – chosen because of the island’s popularity as a world tourism destination, and the high demand for a reliable communication and data services there. Commenting on the launch Indosat president and CEO, Alexander Rusli, said: ‘Supported by the latest technology, these services will provide Indosat’s customers in Bali with the very best user experience. We are committed to the ‘Network Modernisation Programme’ that we have pledged to roll out across the country, and we will continue to look for ways to upgrade the user experience across Indonesia’.
In a press release Indosat added that following the successful trials of 900MHz UMTS technology in Padang, Bukittinggi and West Sumatra in 2012, its Network Modernisation Programme will continue installing the IM3 Super Internet Service across Indonesia, including Jabotabek (Greater Jakarta) and other major cities in Java.
