The speakers at this event consisted of various industrial experts, especially those in their respective fields.
Media Telekomunikasi Mandiri (MTM) is one of the companies that participated in the XCION 10th Conference 2023 with the presence of Thomas Andreas, Director of Satellite Business, as a speaker with the theme “Introducing Starlink to Bridge the Digital Divide in Indonesia”. In his presentation, Thomas Andreas introduced Starlink as a bridge in the digitalization era in Indonesia. Starlink itself is a satellite internet service developed by SpaceX, a company founded by Elon Musk. This service uses a low-Earth orbit satellite network to provide high-speed internet access.
Furthermore, Thomas stated that Indonesia has a significant digital divide, namely the gap between those who have reliable high-speed internet access and those who do not. This lack of access not only affects individuals but also businesses. With Starlink, Indonesia can overcome the digital divide and provide reliable internet access to millions of people who currently lack it. Starlink can be integrated with existing infrastructure to provide limitless internet connectivity, which has a positive impact on society and the business world in Indonesia.
As a company that has been experienced for more than 14 years in the ICT Solution field, MTM is committed to continuously developing its business potential by focusing on providing superior quality and delivering the best services to customers. With Starlink, MTM can provide a solution for fast and reliable internet access needs in Indonesia
