The Japanese telecommunications giant NTT is expanding its IP network once again. They've added two new points of presence in Jakarta, giving them a foothold in Indonesia.
Those two new PoPs will go well with their main node over in Singapore, complementing the other regional leg over to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. NTT has been steadily expanding the on-ramps for its global IP backbone, but with much of the work going on over in Europe.
In Southeastern Asia, Singapore is such a dominant node that it's common for international networks not to seek further coverage in the region. But with traffic growing rapidly, other markets are clearly starting to gain the scale necessary to gain their attention.
