Telecommunication executants in Indonesia have been urged to stop their operation in radio frequency 1.9 GHz and to migrate this frequency to 800 MHz. According to Gatot Dewa Broto, Chief of General Affairs and Public Relations Directorate General Post and Telecommunications Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, this announcement is apparently the result of a recent evaluation on 1.9GHz.

Gatot said that based on rules from the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology Number 01/PER/M.KOMINFO/1/2006 with regards to the mobile cellular network IMT-2000, radio frequency 1,9 GHz can only be used until the end of 2007.

All existing network players are no longer allowed to build and develop PCS 1900 network on the 1.9GHz frequency.

On the other hand, telecommunication providers who have permission to use mobile cellular networks in radio frequency band 1900-1910 coupled with 1980-1990 MHz can only operate with a maximum band of 5 MHz (1905-1910) coupled with 1985-1990 MHz.

Gatot said this frequency allocation has been made to support neutral and effective technology. Also, the Indonesian government wants to keep away from inefficient radio frequency spectrums in order to develop a good telecommunication industry.

“It’s not easy to migrate radio frequency,” says Gatot.

“That’s why this allocation and radio freuquency management is needed.”
