Indonesia Telecommunications Report

BMI View: With increasing saturation of the mobile market and declining voice revenues, we expect Indonesia's largest telecoms service to focus next generation fixed and mobile data networks. This fixed network market is witnessing considerable investments in fibre optic network infrastructure, a development that should drive the uptake of high-value converged services, including IPTV. We also believe that the country's mobile operators will accelerate their tower outsourcing and managed services strategies in order to reduce operating costs considering their weak bottom line performances during FY13.

Key Data

  • The mobile sector grew by 14.6% y-o-y in FY13 to bring the penetration rate to 129.3%.

  • The fixed-line sector contracted by 2.5% y-o-y in FY13, compared to a contraction of 1.6% in FY12.

  • Mobile ARPUs continued their trend in 2013, with market weighted average blended ARPU falling by 5% for the year.

  • We have included estimates for broadband access through dedicated mobile data devices, boosting our historical data and forecast.

Key Trends And Developments

MN C Group's plans to invest USD2-3bn to create an alternative fibre-optic high-speed broadband network in Indonesia over the next 10 years are likely motivated by bullish forecasts for growth in the domestic pay-TV market. The media conglomerate - which operates the largest and most popular group of TV channels in the country - states that its aim is to make affordable broadband access widely available. Reportedly, the network will eventually pass 10mn households and offices and be operated by one of MNC's listed units, PT Global Mediacom. This company has two areas of focus: content and advertising-based media (channelled through 69.5%-owned Media Nusantara Citra) and subscription-based media (provided by 66.5%-owned MNC Sky Vision).
