Market Report, "Indonesia Telecommunications Report Q4 2015", published

The launch of 4G in the refarmed 1,800MHz spectrum has stimulated 4G network expansion in Indonesia, with at least six operators announcing ambitious expansion plans. However, strong take-up is not expected in the near term, due to the high prices of smartphones and limited spending power. Furthermore, minimum local content requirements could have the effect of increasing production cost s and , subsequently, the prices of smartphones. On the other hand, Indonesia's fibre broadband sector presents a positive outlook for growth. With the entrance of 'disruptive' ISP MyRepublic into the fibre broadband market, coupled with heavy investment from both the private and public sector, better connectivity and lower prices can be expected.

Increasing saturation of the mobile market and declining voice revenues will force Indonesia's largest telecoms operators to focus on the development of next-generation fixed and mobile data networks. The country's mobile operators are accelerating their tower outsourcing and managed services strategies in order to reduce operating costs. This is a sensible move considering their weak bottom line performances.
