EZECOM and Thai partner interconnect

Thai telecommunications network provider United Information Highway (UIH) and Cambodian internet service provider EZECOM said they established an interconnect agreement last month to offer improved service to customers conducting business with neighbouring countries.

“We have UIH as a partner for our connection to Thailand; the connection is being tested at present,” Inge Olde Rikkert, marketing manager at EZECOM, said.

“Interconnect between international ISPs is common and is a way to improve speeds and connectivity between countries. For EZECOM customers using Virtual Private Networks and other services, this particular partnership means that for those with offices in Thailand – or those with a need for connectivity to Bangkok – traffic to and from Thailand will now be faster and more efficient.”

According to Passakorn Hongsyok, UIH international business director, the company does not intend to establish an office in Cambodia and offer their services here but to establish connections to neighbouring countries to extend their network overseas.

“This is a long-term view in order to prepare for 2015 AEC opening up the market since there are many Thai companies operating in Cambodia,” he told the Post.

The Ministry of Post and Telecommunications counted nearly 2.5 million internet users in Cambodia last year, while 19.85 million mobile SIM cards were in use.
