Jaringan Komunikasi (Serat Optik & Akses Data) :
Network system of optical fiber broadband backbone Sulawesi-Maluku-Papua Cable System (SMPCS) is currently being developed by the government. SMPCS is a development of fiber optic network that reaches 8 provinces and 34 districts in Eastern Indonesia, including North Sulawesi, Southeast Sulawesi, South Sulawesi, North Maluku, Maluku, East Nusa Tenggara, West Papua and Papua, with a total length of 8,722 kilometers. The development of SMPCS itself is expected to facilitate control of e-budgeting, e-purchasing and cash management system for finance throughout the country and if the program combined with the development of infrastructure, it is expected that the distribution of logistics will be much more equal and make the prices getting much cheaper and affordable for communities in Eastern Indonesia, especially Papua. Optical fiber backbone also enables the entire community to connect with internet service without any exception. Equal distribution of access to communication and information in eastern Indonesia will ultimately accelerate development and economic equality and to improve national competitiveness in the region to welcome the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community.*
In order to answer the needs of national power, the government announced the construction and infrastructure development in the field of electrical energy through the provision of power generation by 35 GW over the next five years (2015-2019). The total demand for electricity in the entire region of Papua is 0.34 GW and 0.22 GW of electricity procurement will be handled by the PLN. While the remainder, 0.12 GW will be handled through Independent Power Producer (IPP). Investment in this area is very beneficial considering competitive labor costs in Asia, a successful partnership between investors and PLN last five years and the support of the Government of Indonesia through the State Investment List in 2014. In addition, Indonesia is also supported by an abundance of coal supply, solar energy, hydropower and geothermal resources.
