Bisnis, JAKARTA -- Elon Musk's satellite internet service Starlink has officially operated in Indonesia. This has inevitably intensified competition within domestic internet services market. The introduction of new players in any industry segment typically has a dual impact: it can either expand the market or diminish the market share of existing providers.

Telkomsel, a subsidiary of Telkom (TLKM), along with XL Axiata (EXCL) and Indosat (ISAT), have formulated strategies to confront the competition from Starlink. Domestic telecommunications operators are adopting two main approaches in response to Starlink's presence: openness to collaboration and a call for the government to ensure a level playing field that promotes healthy competition.

For instance, PT Telekomunikasi Selular (Telkomsel) has emphasized the need for the government to provide an equal playing field for Starlink, which has now officially operated in Indonesia. Telkomsel argues that the regulations and charges applied to domestic telecom companies should also be imposed on Starlink, given that it conducts business and generates profits within the country.

VP of Corporate Communications and Social Responsibility at Telkomsel Saki H. Bramono stated that Telkomsel recognizes the dynamic nature of the telecommunications industry in Indonesia, where competition is an integral aspect.
