CAMBODIA'S overseas calls

reached 60 million minutes in 2008, earning US$40 million for the

government, Minister of Posts and Telecoms So Khun said. Overseas

VOIP [Voice Over Internet Protocol]. VOIP is not a high-quality

service, so many Cambodians are using regular calling methods," So Khun

said.
