After the merger, Indosat has successfully integrated its network in 22 out of 23 districts in Aceh. This integration aims to empower the people of Aceh and promote the use of digital technology to enhance the region’s economy.
Fahd Yudhanegoro, the SVP and Head of Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison Sumatra Region, stated that Aceh Province is a priority for network integration.

This event, which saw the participation of 35 individuals, primarily targeted Generation Z, who are enthusiastic about esports activities.
