Indonesia PT Telkom wins permit to construct mobile network in Myanmar

Indonesia based PT Telkom (Telco) has been selected to construct telecommunication mobile network in Myanmar, according to the Telco reports.

Telco is the largest telecommunications services company in Indonesia. Founded in 1856 it is a majority state-owned company.

Myanmar awarded Norway-based Telenor and Qatar-based Ooredoo communication licences at the end of June. Among two operators, Ooredoo has likely chosen PT Telkom to carry out construction works of mobile network, according to reports.
“Telkom had shown cooperation that could be carried out with international mobile enterprises according to our agreement,” said Arief Yahya, Telco CEO.

Although Telco was not involved in the competitive mobile tender for the two operating licenses, they were granted permission for opening a branch office in Myanmar.

Telekom mainly operates in fixed Line telephony, mobile and internet services, digital television, property and construction and IT Services, while other businesses are run by subsidiaries.

Moreover, the communication firm is now operating in Indonesia, Hong Kong, Austria, Malaysia and Singapore and planning to extend its market in Asia and the Middle-East.
