HISTORY OF TELKOMGROUP
Strengthening National Telecommunications Access, Develop Indonesia’s Digital Society
Throughout its history, Telkom has gone through various business dynamics and transformative phases, such as the invention of telephone, changes in the origin company’s structure that led to the establishment of Telkom, the growth of cellular technology, development of the digital era and international business expansion as well as the company’s transformation to become a digital telecommunications company.
In 1882, the invention of telephone challenged the postal and telegraphic services, which had been in use from 1856 and gradually users were shifting to use this new invention. At that time, there were private companies that operated telephone business and with more players in the industry, it prompted the industry’s growth even further: by 1892 telephone was used for inter local connection and by 1929 it was available for international connection.
The Indonesian government established in 1961 the state postal and telecommunications company, Perusahaan Negara Pos and Telekomunikasi (PN Postel).
But due to the rapid development of telephone and telex services, the Indonesian government issued a government regulation, or the PP No. 30 dated 6 July 1965 which divided PN Postel’s postal and telecommunications industries into PN Pos Giro for postal services and PN Telekomunikasi for telecommunications services.
The division allowed each company to focus on developing their respective business portfolios. The establishment of PN Telekomunikasi is the origin of Telkom that it is today and since 2016, Telkom’s management declared that 6 July 1965 as the founding date of Telkom.
