Indonesian mobile operator Indosat Ooredoo says that the ongoing modernisation of its networks has resulted in the launch of ‘4G Plus’ branded services in South Kalimantan and South Sulawesi (Sulsel). By dint of the latest upgrades, the operator says it can now provide 4G LTE-A coverage in South Sulawesi – specifically covering 21 districts and 138 subdistricts covering the regions of Makassar, Gowa, Takalar, Jeneponto, Bantaeng, Bulukumba, Selayar, Maros, Barru, Pare-Pare, Sidrap, Bone, Sinjai, Sopeng, and Sengkangto. The cellco’s network expansion, which began with the switch-on of 900MHz/1800MHz services in Greater Jakarta in late 2015, consists of new 4G+ cellsites and sites where its existing 3G sites have been upgraded to LTE-A. Meanwhile in South Kalimantan, Indosat Ooredoo – majority-owned by Qatar-based Ooredoo Group – has built out its 4G Plus network in almost all regions, serving 15 districts/municipalities (Balangan Regency, Banjar Regency, Barito Kuala Regency, Hulu Sungai Selatan Regency, Hulu Sungai Tengah Regency, Hulu Sungai Utara Regency, Kotabaru Regency, Tabalong Regency, Tanah Bumbu Regency, Tanah Laut Regency, Tapin Regency, Ogan Ilir Regency, Kapuas Regency, Banjarbaru Municipality and Banjarmasin Municipality), and 75 districts including Tanjung, Barabai, Amuntai, Rantau, Kandangan, Martapura, Banjarbaru, Banjarmasin, Marabahan, Alalak, Pelaihari, Sungai Danau, Pagatan, Batulicin, Kotabaru and others.
