Telkomsat tapped to sell Starlink services to Indonesian enterprises

Telkom Indonesia’s satellite services arm Telkomsat said on Friday that it has signed a cooperation agreement with LEO satellite operator Starlink to offer the latter’s satellite broadband services to enterprises in Indonesia.

Under the agreement, Telkomsat will provide Starlink-based business services that are “competitive and equivalent” to business packages offered on Starlink’s web site.

The deal is the latest collaboration between the two operators. Telkomsat has been providing Starlink backhaul services since 2022 by utilizing anchoring rights granted by the government.

"The backhaul infrastructure deployed by Telkomsat is able to provide quality satellite connectivity services while still guaranteeing national data sovereignty and security," said Telkomsat’s main director Lukman Hakim Abd. Rauf.

According to Telkomsat, its latest agreement with Starlink was signed on Wednesday last week, ahead of the LEO satellite operator’s official service launch in Indonesia on Sunday.

“The momentum of this collaboration further strengthens Telkomsat's position as Starlink's first and main strategic partner in Indonesia,” said Lukman.
