Telecoms & IT

2014 was a challenging year for Indonesia’s telecommunications sector, as operators faced fierce competition and market saturation, and average revenue per user (ARPU) continued to decline. The IT sector, however, showed promising growth, which is expected to continue on the back of the burgeoning data centre, cloud computing and e-commerce segments, with an increasing number of private players benefitting from a tech-savvy consumer base. Although the mobile market faces considerable challenges in adapting to shifting consumer trends, Indonesia’s solid economic fundamentals and thriving digital marketplace have created lucrative opportunities for private players of all sizes.

This chapter contains interviews with Alex Sinaga, President-Director, Telekomunikasi Indonesia; and Dian Siswarini, President-Director and CEO, XL Axiata.
