Intelsat was selected by Lintasarta, a data communication, internet service, and IT services provider, to support the deployment and expansion of Indonesia’s broadband and wireless communications infrastructure, bringing reliable, consistent, and affordable connectivity to millions of Indonesians.

Under a new, five-year agreement, Lintasarta will use overlapping coverage from two of Intelsat’s High Throughput Satellites (HTS), Intelsat 33e and Horizons 3e, which cover the Asia Pacific and Pacific Ocean region. The satellites provide broadband, mobility, and government customers who operate in the region.

“Under our new agreement with Lintasarta, Indonesians will have access to fast, high quality, and consistent broadband that will provide easy access to government, education, and health services and support business operations,” said Intelsat’s Vice President and General Manager, Networks, Jean-Philippe Gillet. “We are pleased that Lintasarta has chosen to utilize Intelsat’s network to advance the government’s goal of building a more digitally inclusive society.”
