Indonesia Refuses BlackBerry to Set Up Servers

Posted on December 12, 2011
Category:

Indonesia is one of BlackBerry’s biggest markets, part of it is because of its BlackBerry Messenger service. Parent company RIM wants to set BBM servers within the country, but apparently the government there wants a peek of it.

The Jakarta Post has reported that Indonesia’s telecommunications regulatory body, the BTRI, declines to establish the servers in the world’s largest Muslim nation. Although the government agency does not clearly state the reason, only stating that “the data exchanged is not safe,” it may be similar to previous refusals from Saudi Arabia and India about these countries wanting to monitor BBM transmissions. RIM has insisted that it cannot monitor or pry into private messages

Prefering to keep its duty to its customers than the country it serves (unlike other companies we know), RIM decides to put up the servers in neighboring Singapore. However, that may not stop the Indonesian government’s insistence to keep BBM transmissions “safer.”
