10 December 2015 |


Indosat Ooredoo has selected Nokia Networks to deploy its LTE-advanced network.

As part of the deal, Nokia Networks’ global services team is deploying LTE base stations in key cities across designated regions. 

Nokia has aggregated two carriers in the 900MHz and 1,800MHz spectrum bands to deliver up to 150Mbps downlink speed to Indosat’s subscribers in Java, Sumatra and Kalimantan. 

“We were especially pleased with the speedy delivery which put us ahead of schedule and enabled fast commercialisation. We will continue to further expand LTE coverage across the country, with the ultimate goal of providing world-class data services to every subscriber using our network," said Alexander Rusli, president director and CEO of Indosat Ooredoo.

The partnership will meet the operator’s customer demands for data-intensive services like multimedia streaming, online games, cloud storage and video conferencing. 

Nokia will also provide network planning and optimisation, design and implementation services as well as hardware services.
