Located in the southern portion if the Indochina Peninsula in southeast Asia, Cambodia is home to over 16 million people. The country is bordered by Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and the Gulf of Thailand. This lower middle income economy is dependent upon agriculture in rural areas. However, rice, fish, timber, garments and rubber are all major exports for the country. In addition, tourism is a growing market and Cambodia sees well over 2 million tourists visits every year.
Fixed line telecommunications infrastructure in Cambodia is in need of expansion and improvement. However, this is unlikely to transpire as mobile network infrastructure is making enormous progress in the country. Mobile phones are widely used and the access to these networks is rapidly expanding into rural areas. With a good, competitive mobile sector, pricing is becoming more affordable. Mobile broadband is hugely popular and is expected to continue to grow over the coming years. Smartphones offer the primary access point to the Internet in Cambodia and in 2016, Internet penetration stood at 25.3%. Though penetration is increasing quickly, there is still a long way to go in terms of linking up rural areas to the mobile phone network which is so critical in the provision of broadband access.
BusinessCom Services in Cambodia
BusinessCom Networks is highly experienced when it comes to augmenting mobile phone networks and extending them into rural regions of Cambodia. Using satellite technology, rural mobile networks provided by BusinessCom enable Mobile Network Operators to expand their subscriber base to the pockets of population that are as yet untapped and unable to access broadband services. Whether it is a 2G, 3G or 4G service that is required, BusinessCom can provide a fully managed, turn-key solution that is also highly cost-effective and eliminates the requirement for any terrestrial infrastructure which is often too expensive to roll out into these outlying regions of Cambodia. The ease of implementation of VSAT systems means that businesses are able to grow organically and can be scaled as and when required with minimum fuss.
VSAT technology can also be used to provide broadband access into remote communities where no fibre exists. Deployment of the VSAT is fast and will facilitate a wide range of applications to users in households, schools, hospitals and clinics or community ICT hubs where the Internet is made available to everyone. This access can help improve socio-economic conditions substantially, and therefore better the lives of the people that use these services form health and education to financial assistance.
Satellite-based connectivity can also play a very useful part in Cambodia’s growing tourist industry by delivering communications to popular yet more remote resorts. This type of connectivity can help hoteliers to access important broadband communications and to make their overall business more efficient and enable them to reach a wider (and global) customer base.
