The function and job scope of the Indonesian Telecommunications Regulatory Body (ITRB) is apparently still under question.

Answering to SDA Asia’s query on the position and clear job description of the ITRB, member of ITRB,Heru Sutadi, said that the telecommunication industry in Indonesia is now in a transition era, so there are many rules that need to be finalised.

About ITRB’s function now, Heru said it basically “Depends on the man behind the gun.”

From his point of view, ITRB is still consistent in managing, watching and handling the telecommunication industry in Indonesia. But, he adds, the regulation in Indonesia is not clear on BRTI’s specific existence.

In the future, Heru said that regulator should be able to be tap into convergence as the telecommunication industry now becoming unlimited with the boundaries in IT and broadcasting almost disappearing.

“The consideration now ITRB should be independent from operator and political purpose,” added Heru.
