            [post_content] => Jakarta. The Ministry of Communication and Information Technology will block consumer access to app-based ride-hailing services if those companies are found to violate stipulations outlined in the controversial revision to a 2016 ministerial regulation, set to come into effect on Saturday (01/04).

Under the new rules, operators such as Go-Jek, Grab and Uber will be forced to cap their fares, limit their number of drivers on the road and obtain roadworthiness certificates for each vehicle in use, among other requirements.

The companies have been granted a three-month grace period which will conclude at the end of June — to adjust their operations in accordance with the new revision, or risk being blocked by Indonesia's mobile service providers.

Minister of Communication and Information Technology Rudiantara said his ministry will provide support to make the sanctions possible.

"The Communication Ministry will work alongside the Transportation Ministry [in enforcing the revised regulation]," Rudiantara said on Monday (27/03).

While agreeing to the proposed safety and roadworthiness requirements outlined in the revision, Go-Jek, Grab and Uber have all come out against the future fare cap and driver quota, measures they feel will prevent customers from receiving economic fairness.

Uber Indonesia, the local unit of the San Francisco-based app-based ride-hailing service, said on Monday that the quota system, if enacted, would defeat the purpose of its services that match real-time demand with available supply.

The company's drivers are not currently forced to work full-time, an option that may disappear under the proposed revisions. According to data released by the company, more than 56 percent of Uber drivers worldwide work under 10 hours a week.

Ride-hailing companies provide necessary services to customers during demand surges that, according to Uber Indonesia, could not otherwise be fulfilled by a limited public transportation system, such as the one that will take shape under the new revision.

            [post_content] => Jakarta. Minister of Communications and Information Technology Rudiantara has said that Indonesia's telecommunications infrastructure may surpass that of Thailand by 2019.

During his visit to Manokwari, West Papua, on Friday (24/02), the minister said Indonesia ranks fourth in Southeast Asia in terms of the infrastructure of its telecommunications networks.

"Singapore is first, followed by Thailand and Malaysia, the fourth place goes to Indonesia" the minister said, as quoted by Antara news agency.

Rudiantara said the government's Palapa Ring Project to run an undersea fiber optic cable is expected to provide internet access across the archipelago.

The project is divided into three parts: western — covering Sumatra and Riau, central — Bali, West Nusa Tenggara, Kalimantan and Sulawesi — and eastern — East Nusa Tenggara, Maluku, West Papua and Papua.

"We seek to complete this project by 2019 and when it's ready, with our telecommunications infrastructure we'll be second, leaving Thailand behind," the minister added.

            [post_content] => Jakarta. An anti hoax campaign kicked off in several cities across the country on Sunday morning (08/01), in a move to contain the spread of provocative content and false information through social media platforms.

Jakarta welcomed the campaign on its car-free day with hundreds of people participating in an event during which Communications and Information Technology Minister Rudiantara‎ called on members of the public to verify the information they receive through social media and resist from sharing false news.

"The role of the society is very important in this effort," Rudiantara said, as quoted by Antara news agency.

The ministry will also promote its so-called "white list" of more than 100,000 websites, which individuals and educational institutions are encouraged to access, Rudiantara said.

Residents of Solo in Central Java participated in the campaign by stamping their hands on "KickOutHoax" wall to show their support for the initiative.

In Surabaya, East Java, Anti Hoax Society volunteers introduced to the city's residents ways to recognize fake news.

Henri Subiakto of the Communications Ministry said the campaign is meant to urge people to be more critical toward information they receive.

"By allowing fake news to be spread through social media platforms, we allow dishonesty and falsehood to stay among us," he said in a statement.

"If falsehood is continually repeated, it might end up being taken as truth," he added.

The Indonesian Press Council plans to give barcodes to verified media outlets to make it easier to distinguish between the legitimate news website and hoax-prone ones. By scanning the barcodes, readers will be redirected to the council's database.

"We seek to have less people deceived and aggrieved by fake news stories," said  Yosep Stanley Adi Prasetyo, the council's chairman.

Strategic policy chief at the Indonesian Telematics Society Teguh Prasetya encouraged the government to have pop-up warnings display on suspicious websites.

"This step is needed to fit up the government's internet censorship policy against the websites that spread hoax and violate the law," Teguh said.

Days of slow and unstable internet connection will come to an end in most parts of Indonesia with the government promising to complete its Palapa Ring project by 2019 in a ministry statement. Palapa Ring will provide fast broadband internet to the entire archipelago through an undersea fiber-optic cable network spun on nearly 11,000 kilometers, according to goverment estimates. "By 2019, every district capital and municipality will be connected to broadband," Communications and Information Technology Minister Rudiantara said on Wednesday (28/09). Palapa Ring project deploys 2,000-km of fiber-optic cable in the western part of the archipelago, 2,700-km fiber-optic in its central part and around 6,300-km fiber-optic in the eastern part of the country. The project will allow Indonesians in remote areas to enjoy internet speed as fast in Jakarta, Rudiantara said. He said that while the average downloading speed in Jakarta was 7-megabit per second, in the eastern parts of the country it was around 300-kilobit per second. A day earlier, President Joko Widodo held a special meeting on e-commerce industry, urging his administration to support the growing sector through appropriate infrastructure and policies. The president said e-commerce sales reached only 0.6 percent of all retail transactions in the country in 2014, while the e-commerce sector can benefit around 56 million small and medium enterprises in the country, that together yield around 55 percent of the gross domestic product. "I'm sure this potential can be the foundation of Indonesia's becoming the Southeast Asia's biggest digital economy," he said in a meeting at the State Palace. The president wants to simplify regulations related to e-commerce industry and organize workshops in villages to have more Indonesians involved in the sector. Chief Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said after the meeting that Indonesia will soon release another policy package, with a special focus on the e-commerce sector. The policy package will be the country's fourteenth deregulation package. It is likely to contain a roadmap for e-commerce industry, with a guide on future regulations on online trade of goods and services and transfers of data and money. It will be enacted through a Presidential Regulation to avoid overlapping authority of ministries involved.

Communications and Information Technology Minister Rudiantara said he plans to phase out the certification requirement for international brand mobile phones in January 2017 to speed up the availability of the latest technology, in a bid to boost the country's economy. "The initiative will be implemented in January next year. Big brands such as iPhone and Samsung have more advanced test labs than us," he said in Jakarta on Tuesday (13/09). All new mobile phones manufactured by international companies have to undergo a government standardization test process of about one month in local test labs before they can be made available for sale to the public. The rule is stipulated under the Telecommunication Law of 1999. According to the Communication Ministry website, the government currently has two test labs; one at the post and telecommunication directorate general in Jakarta and the other at Telekomunikasi Indonesia's research and technology division in Bandung, West Java. These mobile phones have to meet government standards related to interconnectivity and they must also be tested for potential interference with other telecommunication devices. Rudiantara said in order to protect consumers, his ministry will also cooperate with the Ministry of Trade to conduct post-market surveillance. "These mobile phones brands have met international standards. We will conduct post-market surveillance along with the Trade Ministry," he said. According the Communication Ministry website, the post-market surveillance will be carried out by sample selection, evaluation and follow up. Through the post directorate general and information technology standardization, the government will announce in the media, which brands or devices failed to undergo the process. He said if the plan is successfully implemented, it will speed up the process by up to 16 percent because each international brand launches two new mobile phone models per year. He added that global brands have been informed about the government's plan and that they have responded positively. The plan has also been discussed with local manufacturers and the Communication Ministry will conduct a design test for local products.

Communications and Information Technology Minister Rudiantara believes Internet connection speeds in Indonesia still lag far behind those in other countries in the region, due insufficient broadband infrastructure, especially in remote areas. "In Jakarta, we can enjoy Internet speeds up to 10 Mbps [megabits per second], which makes Jakarta the city with the second-fastest Internet speeds in Southeast Asia, after Singapore. But our friends in Maluku and Papua can only enjoy 300 Kbps [kilobits per second]," Rudiantara said in Jakarta on Thursday (28/04) The minister pointed out that only 400 of the country's 514 districts are connected to broadband technology, adding that the government will team up with the private sector to develop more information technology infrastructure. The government has secured a commitment from the private sector and network operators to build the broadband infrastructure in half of the remaining 114 districts as part of the Palapa Ring II project, Rudiantara said. "The operators have no obligation to build base transceiver stations in areas where it is not feasible from a business perspective. But they have a responsibility to contribute towards the universal services obligation fund, which will be used to pay for broadband infrastructure in non-feasible areas," he explained. Last month the ministry signed two concession agreements for the western and central sections of the Palapa Ring II project – a fiber-optic installation project that would provide broadband access across the country. The eastern section of the project is expected to begin next September. The Palapa Ring II project, which will install 11,000 kilometers of fiber-optic cable across the archipelago, is expected to be online by Jan. 1, 2019. Racing With Loon Project The challenge to connect people in eastern Indonesia has also been the main target for the private sector, especially Internet and telecommunication providers. According to Google, only about one out of every three people in Indonesia are connected to the web and most have painfully slow connections, especially in the eastern parts of the country. For that reason, Google is bringing the Loon project to the archipelago of over 17,000 islands. The Internet giant is cooperating with three telecommunication providers to test the Loon project in eastern Indonesia this year. Loon balloons will be sent up into the stratosphere to act as floating cell-phone towers in the sky. At altitudes twice as high as where commercial planes usually fly, the balloons will be at the mercy of prevailing winds. Each floating base station will project a data signal back to earth, and as one balloon drifts out of range, another will move in to take its place. "We hope this could help local operators extend the coverage of their existing networks and reach further into rural and remote areas," Project Loon vice president Mike Cassidy said on Googleblog. "The Internet is still out of reach for too many people but we're making progress. If all goes well, soon many more millions of people in Indonesia will be able to bring their ideas, culture and businesses online. At that point, the sky's the limit," Cassidy said.

The government plans to complete a revision of the controversial Electronic Information and Transactions Law in June, Communications and Information Technology Minister Rudiantara said on Wednesday (20/04). The government's proposed revision of the so-called ITE Law has been under discussion since February by the members of House of Representatives Commission I, which oversees communication and information affairs. "It's pretty quick. We expect to finish [the deliberation] and bring it to a plenary meeting [for final deliberation] in June," Rudiantara told reporters at the legislative complex in Jakarta, as reported by Antara news agency. The revision seeks to reduce jail time stipulated in Article 27 of the existing law to four years from six years currently, the minister said. He said the article in its current form threatens freedom of expression on the Internet. The article further forbids the distribution and transmission of electronic information or electronic records that promote gambling, are considered improper or defamatory, or contain any threats. Several people have already been jailed due to this article, including high-profile singer Nazril "Ariel" Irham, housewife Prita Mulyasari and activist Benny Handoko. Rudiantara said the government also wants to include a stipulation in the revised article that an official complaint from victims would be required before the defamation clause is enforced. Police currently have the power to arrest people based on what they have written online, with or without a complaint from a victim. Firdaus Cahyadi, the executive director of free speech advocacy group Satu Dunia, said the revision must also ensure that people's privacy is better protected and that the blocking of websites is done in a transparent and accountable manner. "We need to strengthen the protection of personal privacy for Internet users in the amendment. Users' privacy must be included in the law itself, rather than in regulations based on the law," Firdaus said in a statement. He also proposed the inclusion in the amendment of clear procedures that should apply when the authorities decide to block Internet websites or applications. "At the moment, it is not clear who has the authority to block the Internet, what procedures exist for doing so, and how to reverse it," Firdaus said. In January, state-owned Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom), the country's largest network provider, blocked Netflix, questioning the legality of the US-based streaming service. Telkom also questioned whether the streaming service complied with Indonesian censorship laws. However, this action occurred in the absence of due process because the current regulations do not require it.
