Indonesia started pilot broadcasting in the Jakarta area on March 9th using Korea’s terrestrial T-DMB platform. Indonesia becomes the third country outside Korea to trial the system following South Africa and Germany, according to the Korean Ministry of Information and Communication.
In Germany the T-DMB platform is already commerciallly available in 16 urban areas, the first country to have such a service on a regular basis. In Korea itself both T-DMB and Satellite DMB are commercially available. The Ministry hopes that, if Indonesia adopts T-DMB as its standard, this will establish a bridgehead in Southeast Asia.
