APTelecom Chosen for Feasibility Study on Indonesia’s Subsea Fiber Optic Cable System

APTelecom has been selected by Indonesian company PT Super Sistem Data (Super Sistem) to conduct a feasibility study for the development of a domestic subsea fiber optic cable system.

The project, supported by a grant from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), aims to enhance broadband internet capacity in remote and underserved areas of Indonesia.

The cable system, named Barat Timur Indonesia (BTI), will span over 4,700 kilometers and connect Batam, Jakarta, and Manado, incorporating seven landing stations. The study will provide Super Sistem with the necessary analysis, designs, and plans for implementing the advanced BTI Cable System, which promises increased capacity, reliability, and reach.

By partnering with Super Sistem, APTelecom is contributing to Indonesia’s economic development and connectivity goals while creating opportunities for U.S. companies in the telecommunications market. The initiative aligns with USTDA’s commitment to expanding access to affordable connectivity and the development of secure digital infrastructure in partner countries worldwide.
