Int’l Roundup: Singtel, Kao Data, Telstra, TPG

December 22nd, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

A couple of data center projects and a shoot-down of a deal by regulators down under:

Singtel says it is entering the Indonesia data center marketplace. They have entered into a strategic partnership with two key Indonesian players: Telkom and Medco Power. The three are breaking ground on a hyperscale facility on 8 hectares of land on the eastern seaboard of Batam in Kabil Industrial Estate. At full buildout some 51MW of capacity are planned, with 20MW available after phase 1.

Kao Data is apparently looking to expand its footprint in Slough once again. According to Capacity, they have tapped Nicholas Webb Architects to remodel and expand their KLON-06 facility, adding some 3,500 square meters of white space across two floors. The plans call for a hybrid cooling system, a lithium-ion UPS, and backup generators powered by hydro-treated vegetable oil.

And a key asset transfer deal in Australia has been nixed by regulators. Telstra and TPG had made a deal in which Telstra would buy spectrum and towers from TPG, which would continue to use the assets for 4G and 5G coverage. Optus objected on competitive grounds, and the ACCC has apparently agreed and moved to block the deal. It’s not over yet though, a legal fight now may ensue.
