The Communications and Information Ministry officially revoked on Friday the 2.3 GHz frequency permit of Internux (Bolt), First Media and Jasnita Telekomindo for failing to pay the fees to operate a 4G LTE network, kompas.com reported.

Internux president director Dicky Mochtar said in a statement that the company supported the government's decision to terminate its 4G LTE service.

Bolt will reportedly still fulfill its obligation to customers, in accordance with state regulations. Users can expect to receive a credit refund or unused quota, as well as a refund of any deposits made, according to kompas.com.
