KOMPAS.com – The central government has vowed to provide a 4G network in Indonesia’s most underdeveloped areas by 2022.

Known as the “3T” zone or areas that are frontier, outermost, and underdeveloped in Indonesia, there are currently 9,113 villages and subdistricts that currently lack access to adequate internet access.

Indonesia’s Minister of Communications and Information Technology Johnny Plate has set a target to connect 1,209 villages/subdistricts this year based on the ministry’s Telecommunications and Information Accessibility Body.

In 2021, some 4,200 villages/subdistricts are expected to gain access to a 4G network, and the remaining 3,704 villages/subdistricts should be connected by 2022.

“Therefore, by 2022, 9,113 villages/subdistricts in the 3T zone will have 4G network in Indonesia by 2022.”

Nationwide, a total of 12,548 villages/subdistricts do not have access to a 4G network particularly those in the 3T zone.

The remaining 3,435 villages/subdistricts outside of the 3T zone have been promised 4G network access that will be provided by cellular operators.
