The Indonesian government estimates that the 4G services adoption will only take place earlier by 2014, according to Jakarta Globe. “The ecosystem is not yet ready. The adoption of 4G is not easy and if we are not careful we may be blamed later. Maybe in two years, 4G [nationwide] will be possible,” Muhammad Budi Setia, director general for post and informatics resources and equipment at the ministry of communication and informatics said.
He added that “the government is still studying which band would be more appropriate to use here. We also have to see which frequency is most used globally because the use of a different frequency will lead to roaming costs.”
