Princeton Digital Group (PDG), a leading developer and operator of internet infrastructure headquartered in Singapore, and the Indonesian Internet Service Provider Association (APJII), which supports internet development in Indonesia, have announced a collaboration to boost Indonesia's internet infrastructure.
This strategic partnership will, the two groups say, help APJII members in Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya and Pekanbaru to have easy access to the Indonesia Internet Exchange (IIX) and strengthen internet connectivity infrastructure in Indonesia. This collaboration will also include PDG's 22MW Jakarta Cibitung 2 (JC2), a new greenfield development launched recently.
With an internet penetration rate of 73.7% in 2021 and 95% of the population in the country accessing the internet via smartphones, Indonesia is poised to be a hyperscale market for data centres. However, the Indonesian market is highly fragmented. Many internet service and content providers are trying to get access to IIX. This partnership opens up more options in terms of location.
In particular it will help members of APJII, a long-established association with over 700 internet providers and over 3,000 corporate members, to reach more digital content by leveraging PDG's expanded footprint in the market. The move will also enable content providers to collocate with PDG to garner easy access to IIX.
At the same time, APJII says it will be able to expand its community and provide broader internet services for Indonesians.
