The Director General of Public Information and Communication (Dirjen IKP) of the Ministry of Communication and Information, Usman Kansong, said that the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Menko Marves) Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan has coordinated with Kominfo regarding Starlink’s entry into Indonesia.
“Pak Luhut has coordinated with Kominfo,” said Usman to detikINET.
Furthermore, said Usman, according to applicable regulations, telecommunications companies that want to operate in Indonesia must be Indonesian legal entities, for example Starlink Indonesia. Or, collaborate with Indonesian telecommunications companies.
When asked further, regarding arrival Elon Musk to Indonesia in October 2023, Usman said the presence of the SpaceX boss was related to the operation of Starlink, not Tesla.
“LEO satellite based internet service (low earth orbit) for eastern Indonesia,” he said.
“I think he (Elon Musk) will be here, in October,” said Luhut as quoted by detikFinance at the Bloomberg CEO Forum, at the Fairmont Hotel, Jakarta, Wednesday (6/9/2023).
