This report presents an overview of Indonesia's fixed broadband market as well as the Digital Media and Digital Economy market segments.
Fixed broadband internet services, although still very much in their infancy, had become a very significant proportion (around 60%) of the fixed internet subscriber base. The ongoing effort to expand internet access around the country was looking as if it would be impeded by inferior telecommunications infrastructure. This has changed dramatically with the advent of mobile broadband services; the rapid roll-out of the wireless broadband, together with the increasing take up of smartphones, has totally changed the market. Indeed, the country has enormous potential as an online market, with the local population spending a lot of time on line.
Whilst broadband users has grown on back of a surge in mobile broadband subscriptions and smartphone sales, fixed internet connections remained relatively low, despite broadband development having accelerated. Fixed broadband penetration was still under 2% by 2016 and broadband household penetration was a low 5%.
Continued progress in the development of the telecom sector will need further government action on restructuring the industry. A stumbling start to building the country's fixed-line network was followed by a solid fresh start, aided by the embracing of fixed-wireless technology, which became the dominant component within that market segment. However, the fixed market is now a minor segment and in decline. This is even more the situation with internet which is still in a relatively early stage of development.
