Number of SIM sales overtakes population

The number of SIM cards sold in Cambodia has reached more than 20 million between the seven mobile operators, overshooting Cambodia’s population of 15 million.

So Khun, minister for the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications, said the rise SIM cards sold exceeded Cambodia’s population because people tend to have more than one SIM card, due to the convenience of services provided by the operators.

Keo Vuthdin, secretariat officer for the ministry said revenue from the industry to the ministry also exceeded the target.

Central administrative revenue for the ministry rose by 118 per cent at the end of November to $20.5 million, compared to the target of $17.5 million.

The revenue for Telecom Cambodia reached $26.2 million, while revenue from Cambodia Post reached $3.7 million at the end of November, he said.
