Faster Internet on Its Way

The Phnom Penh Post reports that Cambodia has signed an agreement with Laos to install a fibre-optic cable to improve internet and telecommunications systems.  The US18 million dollar project is funded by a loan from China, and it is set to complete in April 2009.  An existing fibre-optic cable runs across Cambodia between Thailand and Vietnam.

Telecom Cambodia is overseeing the project for Cambodia, and it provides a map of the network here.

According to the Phnom Penh Post article, internet connectivity remains slow in rural areas.  And at Oudam.com, a 2008 post discusses frustration over slow internet.
