This chapter discusses the development of the telecommunications sector in Cambodia. Cambodia has taken a liberal approach to the development of the telecommunications sector and market entry, and a variety of arrangements have been used to attract investment, including joint ventures, business co-operation contracts (used for the first international gateway with Telstra of Australia, but now expired), and wholly owned subsidiaries of foreign companies. In 2006 the Vietnam Data Communications Company entered into an agreement with local wireless Internet company WiCAM to provide 2 Mbps (to be increased to 6 Mbps) digital subscriber line connections. eBTechnologies (Malaysia) was also awarded a turnkey contract to build a wireline and wireless broadband Internet network for Cambodian Broadband Technologies Company (CB Technologies) with eBTechnologies having an option to buy shares in the venture.
