Indonesia's telecommunications industry has seen rapid advancement in the past decade, mainly driven by growth in mobile subscriptions. Regulatory changes and investment in digital infrastructure have prompted take-up of innovative technology in the sector. However, more recently the evolution of the sector has been hampered by a lack of digital and innovation competitiveness, which has undermined overall rates of information and communications technology (ICT) adoption. Indonesia ranked 72nd out of 141 countries in terms of ICT adoption in the 2019 World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Competitiveness Index.

Expanded coverage, greater affordability, service improvements, increased data usage and smartphone penetration are the main drivers of growth in the telecoms sector. The country continues to expand its fibre-optic network and 4G coverage, backed by strong investment in capital expenditure. However, growth in the availability of 4G connections began to stall in mid-2019, a reflection of market maturity, one operator's closure of its 3G network and the geographical obstacles related to expansion. All five operators logged availability rates in excess of 80% in June 2019, with the highest at 95.8%. Investment in the telecoms sector grew at an annual average rate of 7% in 2014-18 and is expected to maintain growth momentum in 2019-24, albeit slowing to an average rate of 4%.

As the mobile market reaches saturation, the average annual growth rate for mobile subscriptions is forecast to remain modest, at 2% in 2020-24, compared with similar average growth of 1.7% in 2014-18. Fixed lines will decline slightly, at an annual average rate of 0.75%. Internet subscriptions will register average growth of 10.5% during the forecast period.
