Blackberry Banned In Indonesia. The Telecommunications Regulatory Agency of Indonesia (BRTI) appealed to the Research in Motion (RIM) BlackBerry manufacturer to build as a local server in Indonesia. If it doesn’t comply, The Telecommunications Regulatory Agency of Indonesia will stop the service of BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS).
As quote by a spokeman of BRTI explaining asked to RIM to build servers in Indonesia starting in 2009. But until now, RIM does not implement the request.
“If they don’t want to build a server here, better don’t attempt here. BIS services will be terminated so that mobile phone BlackBerry would be like a standard mobile phone,”
Because the service uses the BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS), additionally during operations in Indonesia, RIM does not have the permission of Internet Service Provider (ISP).
BRTI asked RIM to establish a local server in Indonesia because of BlackBerry users in Indonesia reaches 5 million users. Even sending Blackberry in Indonesia reached 9 million units.
In addition, the construction of the local server is also required for the delivery of bus services including Blackberry Messenger (BBM) faster, more secure information exchange, and the cost of BIS services would be cheaper.
