SINET expands into residential market with Nokia's FTTH solution

19 Mar 2019

SINET, a Cambodian ISP specialising in the business and enterprise sector, has selected Nokia to enable it to enter the residential broadband market. The Finnish vendor will help SINET roll out a nationwide fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) access network that will start in major residential and gated communities, locally known as borey, and housing apartments in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

‘The Cambodia market is crowded with low-quality residential broadband services available at low prices using many off-the-shelf access equipment with little consideration to long term quality and reliability,’ commented Meta Sy, CEO of SINET, adding: ‘When we decided to deploy GPON in borey and housing apartments, we wanted a quality-based and future-proof offering that would set us apart from the competition. That means the service has to be on-par with international broadband standard in terms of speed, reliability, efficiency and ease of troubleshooting which are key criteria why we selected Nokia.’
