Jakarta (Antara News) - Cellular telephone operator PT Mobile-8 (FREN) will form a merger with its subsidiaries PT Metro Selular Nusantara (Metrosel), PT Komunikasi Selular Indonesia (Komselindo) and PT Telekomindo Selular Raya (Telesera), a report said.

Publicly listed company PT Mobile-8 Telecom will turn into a surviving entity in the merger along with Metrosel, Komselindo and Telesera, FREN said here Wednesday.
