JAKARTA, April 21, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) — Princeton Digital Group, Asia’s leading data center provider, and the Indonesian Association of Internet Service Providers (APJII) have announced a collaboration to further improve the Internet infrastructure of Indonesia.

This strategic partnership will help APJII members in Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya and Pekanbaru easily access the Indonesia Internet Exchange (IIX) and strengthen the Internet connectivity infrastructure in Indonesia. This collaboration will also include PDG’s 22MW Jakarta Cibitung 2 (JC2), an entirely new development that PDG recently launched.

The APJII is a long-established association with more than 700 Internet service providers and more than 3,000 member companies. The association offers its members several strategic services, including access to IIX, support, seminars and training, and industry information. These services are provided to help its members provide quality internet services to Indonesians, in line with the Indonesian government’s program to foster digital transformation by strengthening the inclusion of the country’s digital and internet infrastructure to expand connectivity across the archipelago.

With an internet penetration rate of 73.7% in 2021, an increase from 64.8% in 2018, and 95% of the country’s population accessing the internet via smartphones, Indonesia is on track to become a large-scale market for data centers. According to Structure Research, the data center colocation market in Jakarta is expected to grow at a CAGR of 23.7% between 2020 and 2025, indicating massive growth to come.

APJII Chairman Muhammad Arif said, “As Internet penetration continues to grow, APJII must anticipate the needs of Internet infrastructure, including Internet exchange nodes and data center, in terms of capacity, reliability and efficiency. APJII is committed to supporting Indonesia’s vision of becoming the region’s greatest digital economic powerhouse and enhancing internet sovereignty.”

However, the Indonesian market is very fragmented. Many ISPs and content providers attempt to access IIX. With this partnership, PDG opens up more options in terms of localization. This will help APJII members reach for more digital content by leveraging CEO’s expanded footprint in the market. The move will allow content providers to co-locate with PDG to gain easy access to IIX. At the same time, APJII is able to expand its community and provide wider Internet services to Indonesians.

“Building a stronger digital infrastructure in Indonesia and contributing to the upliftment of the nation as a whole is at the core of PDG. Being at the center of explosive economic growth and rapid digitalization by the government sector in Indonesia, PDG is well positioned to serve the world of cloud computing companies, national internet companies and enterprises with unparalleled scalability, connectivity and reliability,” said Stephanus Tumbelaka, General Manager for Indonesia, Princeton Digital Group.
