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

landline calling has remained at the same rate, he added, even with

more Cambodians using the internet to make calls abroad. "Some overseas

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

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

said.
