RIM faces government problems in Indonesia

The Indonesian government has claimed it will stop all RIM services in the country due to the fact that the company has failed to install BBM servers in Indonesia. Instead the Canadian company installed the servers in near-by Singapore.

This could be a huge blow to RIM as the BlackBerry usage in Indonesia is among the highest in the world.

Officially, the Indonesian government wants the servers installed in Indonesia because it says that the information exchanged is not safe.

Unofficially the requirement may have other goals such as information control and access to the information exchanged.

This is nothing new as it seems the Indonesian government follows suit with Saudi Arabia and India which wanted to be able to check BlackBerry correspondence and also threatened with restrictions to RIM services in their own countries.
