Indonesia to build telecommunications towers to provide access to Seruyan

Indonesia to build telecommunications towers to provide access to Seruyan

According to the announcement
made by the Ministry
of Communications and Informatics
, there are still areas in the
Seruyan region that are not reached by cellular network.

The 13 units of cellular telecommunications
towers, to be built by the Ministry of Communications and Informatics in
Seruyan District, Central Kalimantan, will ensure that the area has better access
to mobile networks.

Seruyan Regional Secretary Haryono
explained that the construction of telecommunications towers, otherwise known
as base transceiver station (BTS), with a budget allotment of billions of
rupiah, will be done on areas in Seruyan with no access to mobile networks.
These blank spots are mostly found in the upstream areas.

The upstream areas that remain to be
inaccessible include Seruyan Tengah Subdistrict, Seruyan Hulu Subdistrict, and
Suling Tambun Sub-District.

He expressed the significance of the 13
towers as being connected will encourage the acceleration of development in
Seruyan. Hopefully, more towers will be built in the future to gain more reach.

He added that having access to
telecommunications will not only provide communication among residents from
within and outside the Seruyan area, but it will also maximise the potential of
the resources found in the area of vicinity.

He explained that the Suling Tambun
sub-district, one of the sub-districts in the upstream region of Seruyan, has
abundant natural resources. Some of which are rubber and rattan.

The limited access to telecommunications
networks in the area, however, prevents people from having an easy access to
the market. Moreover, various commodities produced by the region lacked proper
marketing, which again is attributed to the lack of communication access.

The building of 13 towers will solve issues
such as where can the sellers meet possible buyers, how buyers will be able to
meet with the selling community, as well as what the commercially accepted
price for the product is.

Not having accessible communications in the
region will also provide problems for the government, especially in situations
wherein they need to react quickly. Governments are now required to respond and
move quickly, but not having proper means of communication will prove to be an

Seruyan Regional Secretary Haryono
expressed that hopefully the BTS development plan by the central government for
the region will be successful so that there will be no more districts labelled
as blank spots.
