President, Director, and Chief Executive Officer of Indosat Ooredoo Hutschison, Vikram Sinha, stated that Capex is needed for many things to develop Indosat’s business. Capex is useful for increasing capacity and networks, so they are stronger. Apart from that, these funds are also useful for expanding the reach of the network to remote areas of Indonesia. The company plans to reach remote areas in Indonesia, such as Papua and Maluku. In order to realize the provision of a resilient network, they also collaborate with various foreign companies on a global scale.

Collaboration allows them to utilize high technology to manage data centers. Indosat also collaborates with Huawei to carry out AI-based digital development.
