Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information (MCI, aka KemKominfo) has pledged to take an active role in developing telecommunication services and infrastructure in the country’s new National Capital (IKN) in Kalimantan. With the government having recently adopted legislation to relocate the nation’s capital from DKI Jakarta to Kalimantan – the so-called IKN Law – ministry spokesman Dedy Permadi confirmed: ‘KemKominfo is currently mapping the needs for backbone network capacity and last mile access networks in the New IKN which includes supporting infrastructure for active and passive devices for the implementation of fixed broadband and mobile broadband services.’
