22 Apr 2020

Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information (MCI), known locally as Kementerian Komunikasi dan Informatika (KemKominfo), is currently preparing new telecoms regulations in order to provide ‘policy incentives’ to telecoms operators related to improving the ‘ease of doing business’ and industrial efficiency, and in so doing drive take-up in underdeveloped regions. IndoTelko notes that the policy incentives are related to the optimisation of telecommunications infrastructure utilisation, specifically Universal Service Obligation (USO) infrastructure in order to encourage service penetration and equal distribution of telecoms services to the population, including in the so-called disadvantaged ‘3T’ (foremost, outermost and lagging) zones.
