The Jakarta Post
Publicly listed internet service provider PT Link Net, known for its broadband service FastNet, saw its net profit jump 28 percent to Rp 818.56 billion (US$61.46 million) last year compared to the same period in 2015.
The company, which is a subsidiary of the Lippo Group-affiliated multimedia firm First Media, added Rp 390 billion to its revenue to Rp 2.95 trillion last year compared to the Rp 2.56 trillion booked in the previous year. The revenue is a 15 percent increase year-on-year (yoy).
“This [the result] is a reflection of the opportunities that abound in a largely under-penetrated market, and the company’s ability to stay focused on its premium target segment and differentiates itself from quality and innovative products and services,” Link Net president director and CEO Irwan Djaja said in a statement.

The firm also continued to expand its network to 153,000 new homes, bringing its total to 1.83 million homes by the end of last year.
