New fibre-optic cable will connect Cambodia to China

28 Jan 2009

A USD18 million infrastructure project is set to connect Cambodia to China’s Yunnan Province in April 2009 through a new high speed fibre-optic cable. Construction of the cable has recently been completed, with help from a Chinese loan, by project implementer Cambodia Telecom. So Khun, Minister of Posts and Telecommunications, said the project will improve the quality of internet and telecoms services, and help to cut-prices, increasing the country’s business competitiveness.
