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.
