Japan's NTT Com has launched its own fiber network in Indonesia, through its local subsidiary.

NTT Indonesia has gone live with a fiber service in the East Jakarta Industrial Park, the company announced today.

The company revealed plans to build and operate fiber networks in additional locations in Indonesia in the near future, including more industrial parks and office buildings.

NTT Indonesia received a fixed-line operating license from the Indonesian government in December 2011, becoming the first foreign carrier to receive clearance to operate an end-to-end fiber network.

In a statement, NTT Com said that demand for high-speed network services among Indonesian enterprises is growing as more local companies look to expand internationally.

NTT Com has been expanding its presence and capacity in the APAC region. Last month, the company revealed it had agreed to collaborate with the Lao National Internet Center to provide Laotian ISPs with access to its Tier-1 network.

In November, NTT Com announced it had committed to upgrading its PC-1 cross-pacific cable to true 100G by mid-2013, more than tripling the cable's capacity to 10Tbps.
