Indonesia - Telecommunications sector study : Main report (English)

The telecommunications sector in Indonesia is dominated by Perushaan Umum Telekommunikasi (PERUMTEL), the state-owned domestic telecommunications service provider. Performance in this sector needs to be greatly improved. Registered excess demand for telephone service is more than 65 percent of existing supply, and growing. The next three five-year plans will see enormous growth in overall demand for telephone services, compounding system difficulties and existing supply shortages. Long-term government objectives for the sector include : a) a rapid increase in the number of exchange lines and in the number of public call offices; b) increased availability of automatic telephone service; c) extension of basic telephone service to rural areas; d) increased levels of self-financing for sector entities; and e) significantly improved efficiency and productivity. Further, to address the problems and challenges already identified, initiatives are needed in the following four broad areas : 1) government management of the sector; 2) competition and private sector participation; 3) development of strategies for investment, procurement and financing; and 4) PERUMTEL institutional strengthening.
