New ISP will alter broadband landscape

A new Internet service provider (ISP) will soon enter the market, offering cheaper

rates, high-speed connections and unlimited-data-transfer plans.

City Link Co. Ltd. will begin connecting people June 18 and will provide competition

at the higher end of the market, as well as offering simple, affordable Internet

services, said Paul Blanche-Horgan, chief executive officer.

City Link will be only the second ISP to offer Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Lines

(ADSL), which moves data over regular phone lines at a rate much faster than dial-up


"For the first time in Cambodia we offer unlimited ADSL, ideal for hotels and

businesses," Blanche-Horgan said. "We want to open the customer base. We've

seen it stagnant for too long."

The unlimited ADSL service will be available at 512 kilobytes per second (kbps) for

a cost of $949.95 per month, and an ADSL connection that allows 500 megabytes of

data download at 128 kbps will cost $59.95 a month.

City Link also offers dial-up connections, prepaid packages, and Internet management


The newcomer launched its range of services at the Cambodian Information Communications

and Technology (ICT) World Expo at the National Cultural Center in Phnom Penh on

May 25.

Online, the other provider of ADSL, was also at the ICT World Expo but would not

say whether they would lower their prices to compete with City Link.
