$TLKM – Telkom officially launched its 3rd data center service “Telin-3” in Singapore. Telin Singapore CEO Septika Widyasrini said that Telin-3 is a carrier-neutral data center supplier that is connected to domestic fiber optic network owned by Telin Singapore. Telkom also owned 2 data centers (Telin 1 and 2) which are located in Changi and Tai Seng, Singapore.
Comment: Building a data center in SG helps Telkom reduce traffic that goes to the U.S. by caching regularly downloaded data to the data center in SG. A data center in SG may also attract companies to setup mirror site in the region but are not as comfortable to setup such sites in Indonesia.
