Intelsat, Telkom expand broadband connectivity across Indonesia
Intelsat S.A. (NYSE:I), operator of integrated satellite communications, and PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, Tbk (PT Telkom), Indonesia?s largest satellite telecommunications services company, have entered into a collaboration agreement designed to provide options as the companies explore new opportunities to serve a region with expansive needs for broadband connectivity, the companies said. Under the new, multi-year agreement, Telkom has relocated the Telkom-2 satellite to Intelsat?s 157?? East orbital location, where it will be co-located with Intelsat 5.
This move allows Telkom to efficiently manage its satellite fleet while expanding its use of Intelsat services to complement PT Telkom?s network. The two satellite operators will also analyze the potential to expand services at 157?? East.
Intelsat operates a globalized network, delivering video and broadband services anywhere in the world.
Telkom Group is a state-owned telecommunications enterprise as well as telecommunications and network service providers in Indonesia.
