Director of Mobitel, Jeffrey Noble, predicts the number of mobile users
will double to cover half of the 14 million population by the end of
2011, he said Wednesday at a signing ceremony in Phnom Penh in which
the company received a US$100 million loan from the International
Finance Corporation (IFC). Mobitel Chairman Kith Meng said expanding
network coverage would help improve the lives of people living in rural
areas. IFC Country Manager Sin Foong Wong said the loan would help
stimulate telecoms development.
