Dear our ICT readers,
The world economy is changing from industrial economy to digital economy. The same thing happens for financial movement, from cash society to less cash society. Financial technology going digital is becoming familiar, and eventually everything is a click or a tap away. Financial technology aka fintech will be our Main Report for ICT Magazine No. 54-2017.

In addition to fintech, we will also take a look at government’s plan to auction off frequency 2.1 GHz and 2.3 GHz, as well as the interested parties and stakeholders’ hopes on this auction that will give significant contribution for the country. Although, on the other hand, this auction, particularly frequency 2.3 GHz gets stumbled following lawsuit from one of telecommunication operators granted by Central Jakarta District Court.
From broadcasting, we will analyze the fifth International Conference and Annual Meeting OIC Broadcasting Regulation Authorities Forum (IBRAF) that produced Bandung Declaration about Media Role in Promoting Tolerance and Fighting Terrorism and Islamophobia.
