LISTED COMPANY - JAKARTA. PT Tower Bersama Infrastructure Tbk, a leading telecommunications tower company in Indonesia, is exploring potential collaborations with Elon Musk's low earth orbit (LEO) satellite company, SpaceX.

Herman Setya Budi, the President Director of Tower Bersama Infrastructure, explained that while the infrastructure offered by SpaceX's Starlink differs from that of PT Tower Bersama Infrastructure Tbk, the two could complement each other.

"However, it would serve as a complement between Starlink and us. While towers and fiber optics ensure data speed, Starlink is more suitable for peripheral areas," Budi said in an interview on Thursday (30/5).
