5G is coming into view all across Southeast Asia – except for the regional giant Indonesia.
The archipelago state has 273 million people, 345 million mobile subs and higher GDP per capita than the Philippines, Vietnam and Cambodia.

By comparison, the Philippines will get underway in Q3, Cambodia operators have already begun trials and Vietnam telcos just struck a network-sharing partnership. Even tiny Laos is making preparations.
