Telkom Indonesia sets up in Macau, Taiwan

24 Dec 2013

Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom) plans to provide services via subsidiaries in Macau and Taiwan in the first quarter of 2014, following the establishment of a subsidiary in the US, reports the Jakarta Globe. Company director Arief Yahya told reporters that Macau and Taiwan would be the eighth and ninth countries in which Telkom does business, and although he did not offer further details, earlier this year he said the prospects in both territories were in wholesale international telecoms. Telkom USA was established on 11 December 2013 with an initial four network nodes, while the Indonesian firm is aiming to enter at least ten overseas markets by 2015 with the stated aim of overtaking SingTel as the ‘largest telecoms company in Southeast Asia’. Telkom’s other overseas expansions include a business in Myanmar where it secured a licence to handle international network traffic to and from the developing country.
