The review conducted by the Telecommunication Directorate of the Post and Informatics Directorate General (Ditjen PPI) will be open until June 16, 2023, according to a statement issued by the directorate here on Friday.
The public test for the e-SIM implementation review is intended to obtain inputs from stakeholders to improve the review materials.
This is expected to help produce a comprehensive and accurate review to support the e-SIM ecosystem in Indonesia.
In general, the ministry has prepared the review with several goals, such as obtaining an overview of e-SIM technology and its implementation.
Moreover, the review is expected to include an e-SIM policy or regulation analysis, which is necessary to support the formation of an e-SIM ecosystem in Indonesia.
In addition, the review could also help the government get an overview of the impact of policies or regulations supporting the implementation and development of the e-SIM industry and ecosystem in Indonesia.
This will lead to better, sustainable services for the public.
Within the formulated draft, the ministry has presented eight chapters for the review, which encompasses several topics.
These include the definition of e-SIM technology, e-SIM implementation implication review, data obtained on the field, e-SIM implementation regulation, e-SIM implementation regulation risk, and conclusion.

Response to the e-SIM implementation review public test can be conveyed by the public to the e-mail address email@example.com.
The implementation of e-SIM in Indonesia began four years ago, with cellular operator Smartfren introducing the service in July 2019.
The way e-SIM works differs clearly from physical SIM cards that still dominate the industry in Indonesia currently.
e-SIMs can be programmed and implanted within hardware, whether on a smartphone or a tablet, eliminating the need for a physical card in the form of a chip.
