Tender for Fiber-Optic Expansion

The government will hold a tender in March in a bid to expand its fiber-optic cable network in a bid to strengthen its telecommunications sector, a communications department official said on Tuesday, according to Reuters.

Basuki Iskandar, Director General of Telecommunicatons, said Indonesia has a fiber-optic network of around 70,000-km, far smaller than regional neighbour Malaysia, of far smaller size and population.

"We will launch the open tender in March next year," Iskandar told reporters. He declined to comment on the investment needed or the size of the network.
