Cambodian minister attacks telcos

01 July 2021

Disruptions to telephone and internet services reported across Cambodia June 2 were a result of poor infrastructure development in the telecommunications sector, according to the country’s minister of posts and telecommunications.

Chea Vandeth blamed internet and mobile service providers for not investing enough in antenna masts and other infrastructure to meet growing consumer demand.

“The companies would build a single tower to serve an area of 3,000 people, which would’ve since grown to 10,000 people,” Vandeth said. “Thus many customers experience disrupted services, and towers are far apart from each other, with companies not installing more. Companies are merely looking to turn a profit and line their own pockets with money without bothering to deploy additional equipment.”
