Indonesia is a beautiful country with great potential in its nature, culture and people. It has about 275 million inhabitants, 62 million SMEs and established 12 of the 24 unicorns in Southeast Asia. Indonesia is expected to become the 10th largest GDP by 2030 and the 4th largest by 2045. Moreover, the country’s internet economy reached US$70 billion, which means optimistic outlook for the populous nation and its digital economy.

In 2019, IOH, formerly known as Indosat Ooredoo, completed a successful three-year turnaround strategy to bring glory back to Indosat. IOH was born on January 4, 2022 and combines two complementary companies of Indosat Ooredoo and Hutchison Tri Indonesia. With a larger purpose, IOH aims to connect and empower Indonesian people by accelerating the nation’s digital transformation.

As part of its support to drive the government’s digital agenda, IOH launched 5G in 6 cities, including the latest 5G launch, in partnership with Huawei, a trusted network infrastructure provider, in Bali to support G20 presidencies.

Huawei Indonesia CEO Jacky Chen said “We are proud to partner with IOH to empower Indonesia. The 5G launch is in line with our goal to stimulate and accelerate innovation as we move one step closer to the future.”

IOH also formed other strategic global partnerships to bring the best digital solutions to the people of Indonesia. Together with BDx and Lintasarta, the company established BDx Indonesia to elevate Indonesia’s data center business. The company recently introduced the UMKM Super Combo package in partnership with Google Cloud to provide cost-effective solutions for MSMEs in Indonesia to grow their businesses.
