    4G network launched in Cambodia

    Mobile internet speeds in Cambodia are ratcheting up a notch.

    Smart Mobile, the country’s second largest operator by subscribers, is making 4G LTE internet available to customers this week, the company announced yesterday during the launch of the service at NagaWorld Casino.

    Thomas Hundt, CEO of Smart, said 4G LTE access is now operational in six “Experience Zones”, including NagaWorld, Sovanna Shopping Centre, Ratana Plaza Shopping Mall, De Castle Toul Kork, Phnom Penh’s airport and the firm’s Boeung Trabek store.

    People wishing to access the network, which promises mobile internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G-capable devices, will need to swap their existing SIM card with Smart’s new 4G LTE SIMs.

    Hundt said that in order to use the network, new Smart subscribers must either already have a 4G-capable device or purchase one at a local branch, which offers models starting at $150. A basic plan goes for $5 per for 1 gigabyte of data. Use all the data before the month is up and the telco offers a pay-as-you-use system, which will charge at the rate of 500 kilobytes per US cent.

    While the announced 4G LTE footprint is restricted to only a few locations, Hundt said the company plans to expand the network to Sorya Shopping Centre, Phnom Penh Tower, Vattanac tower and Siem Reap International Airport by March.

    By June, he said, the network will be available in nearly all of downtown Phnom Penh.

    Way to go Cambodia .... probably even Myanmar will beat Thailand to 4G!!

    Meanwhile in South Korea ...

    South Korea's 5G mobile broadband. The "fastest ever" broadband speeds have been achieved in a test that hit 1.4 terabits per second - enough to transmit 44 high-definition movies in just one second.
