Telkom to build new tower

The state-owned PT Telkom communication company will build a new 350-meter-high tower to replace the old one of 90 meters, the company said.

John Welly, president of the Jakarta chapter of PT Telkom, said late last week that they will spend some Rp 80 billion (US$35 million) to construct the transmitter/receiver tower.

Welly said in a bid that in order to keep its service in Sumatra, Java and Bali, three of the most important islands in Indonesia, PT Telkom must build a new, higher tower. (09)
