Telkomsel to Invest $1.5b to Expand Coverage

The country's largest mobile phone operator, PT Telkomsel, said it will build 5,000 more base transceiver stations (BTS) to expand its coverage in 2007.

Currently, the subsidiary of state-owned telecommunications provider PT Telkom already has 15,000 BTS.

Telkomsel will set aside $1.5 billion in capital expenditure to finance the construction of the new BTS, company president, Kiskenda Suriahardja, was quoted as saying by Antara.

Telkomselís subscribers numbered 32.5 million last month.
