SES Networks, Teleglobal Bring Broadband to Rural Indonesia
SES Networks teamed up with Teleglobal to bring broadband access and mobile connectivity services to rural communities in Indonesia, delivered by SES’ managed data services and the SES-12 satellite. Under a new agreement, Teleglobal and SES Networks will be partaking in the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology’s universal service obligation (USO) project via its USO agency Badan Aksesibilitas Telekomunikasi dan Informasi (BAKTI) to provide broadband internet access and mobile backhaul services to 150,000 sites.
The five-year agreement will see Teleglobal contract 1.3 GHz of capacity on SES-12, one of SES’ High Throughput Satellites (HTS) covering the Asia-Pacific region, with an option to extend for a further five years. The largest SES GEO HTS covering Asia-Pacific has six regional beams and 72 high throughput user spot beams and can provide cost-effective solutions for broadcasters, content operators, mobile network operators, internet service providers, enterprise, maritime, and aeronautical and government customers across Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.
“Teleglobal is honoured to be chosen by Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology as one of the key providers for satellite capacity for the BAKTI project. At Teleglobal, we believe in the power of connectivity, in opening new doors of opportunity to communities in Indonesia and around the world,” said Candra Indianto, Teleglobal Director. “With the new service offering, Teleglobal is bridging the digital divide and bringing much-needed e-Government and other essential services to the underserved rural communities of Indonesia. SES Networks’ unparalleled global reach and operational expertise make them the ideal partner to provide reliable, high-speed broadband connectivity to all corners of Indonesia.”
