23 Apr 2012

Vietnam Telecom International (VTI) and Telecom Cambodia (TC) have launched the Cambodian-Vietnamese Super Highway Telecoms Network, which is expected to help meet growing customer demand for telecommunications services in Cambodia. Viet Nam News reports that the new 260km link, which has an initial design capacity of 10Gbps, connects VTI’s point of presence (PoP) in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It is expandable to Asia, Europe and North America through international submarine cable systems and cross-border land cable connections to China and Laos. Speaking at the launch ceremony, Cambodia’s minister of posts and telecommunication, So Khun, said the link would help drive the development of the country’s economy.
