Hutchison Telecommunications International, which has operations from Hong Kong to Ghana, says it is on track to start offering mobile telephone services in Indonesia this quarter.

The company also clarified its commitment to its Indonesian mobile business with planned capital expenditure of $750 million for the three years up to 2008, a Hutchison Telecom spokesman was quoted as saying by The South China Morning Post.

Hutchison CP Telecommunications, the Indonesian unit of Hutchison Telecom, will invest in wireless towers in Sumatra, company director Sidarta Sidik said, confirming a report in the Koran Tempo newspaper.

"We have a presence in most of the big cities in Java, and now we are going to move toward Sumatra," he said. "As a new player, the most important thing is to get the first one million subscribers as soon as possible. Things will be easier after that." He declined to give a time frame.

Koran Tempo, citing Sidik, reported Hutchison CP Telecom plans to spend $1 billion to build telephone towers in Indonesia this year.

"Our capital expenditure for Indonesian operations for three years since 2006 has not changed and remains at $750 million in total," Hutchison Telecom spokesman, Micky Shiu, said.
