KERRY TECHNOLOGY PARK, Ireland, February 9, 2011 - PT Indosat Tbk - the second largest mobile operator in Indonesia, has
selected Altobridge, a leading provider of mobile telecommunications
solutions, as its supplier of choice to bring mobile connectivity to remote
communities across Indonesia.

Deployment of the Altobridge lite-sites(TM) is already underway amongst
previously unconnected communities in West Sulawesi. The low-cost,
solar-powered Altobridge solution will bring voice, SMS and mobile data
connectivity, for the first time, to communities and enterprises across

Steve Hobbs, Indosat Director and Chief Technology Officer, said,
"Bringing mobile connectivity to thousands of unconnected communities in
Indonesia is part of our vision to provide products and services, which
enhance the quality of life of the communities we operate in.
