We Are Turning Sweet 16th!

Posted by Briana from Telin on Mar 14, 2023 9:28:00 AM


Sixteen years ago in 2007, when Telin was established to manage Indonesia’s international telecommunications business, none of us could have imagined that we’d be where we are now. The past decade and a half have seen sweeping transformations across the global connectivity and telecommunications industry, leading to major disruptions as companies strive to reinvent themselves for the digital era.


These sweeping changes extended to Telin as well, forcing us to examine and re-imagine our business model and vision for a changing world. In response, over the last few years, we have undertaken a massive transformation of our business which we finally completed at the end of 2022.


With this transformation into “One Telin”, we have now taken major steps towards our new vision of becoming the digital infrastructure and platform partner of choice in the Indo-Pacific region. As a result, customers and partners, including yourself, will be able to enjoy a better experience with Telin’s products as we bring our client service people from across the globe to focus on solving your challenges in specific areas.


To reflect these achievements and our optimism for the future, we’ve settled on ‘Dazzling’ as the theme of our Sweet 16th year! This word that may seem jarring given the ongoing global turbulence, but we also believe that it’s the perfect word to discover the potential and promise that we see. Both for our customers and for ourselves at Telin, as we prepare to step out and dazzle as a global enterprise from Indonesia on the world stage.


With that, please allow us to recap our journey!
