AT&T (Dallas, Texas) announced Wednesday it has become the first foreign telecom operator to secure a Multimedia Services Operator (MSO) license in Indonesia.
Indonesia Government's policy permits up to 95% foreign ownership for communications services in the country. AT&T owns 95% of the joint venture.
AT&T currently offers Virtual Private Network and other value-added data services to multinational corporations that have locations in Indonesia working with existing locally licensed Indonesian service providers. With the new MSO license, AT&T Indonesia will directly provide global managed network services and business applications.
According to AT&T, through this new license, and related government approvals, AT&T Indonesia is planning to introduce several changes to its service portfolio including managed LAN, managed IP services and managed application services.
AT&T has invested more than $4 billion since 2006 in business-focused international network, systems and applications.
