The Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications has stripped broadband communications provider Chuan Wei (Cambodia) Co Ltd of three licences for breaching terms.
The ministry listed the licences as – Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), 4G mobile service, and submarine fibre-optic cable.
On November 24, it said it would allow the company, which operates under the brand “Wizion”, to keep its Internet Service Provider (ISP) licence if it settles its outstanding debts to the government.
It issued a broad warning that it would “take action and revoke the licences of any telecoms operators who fail to abide by their terms or comply with the laws.
“[This can be due to prolonged] inactivity, incorrect self-reported income data, insufficient financial or technical documentation, unsettled debts, or unpaid levies owed to the government,” the ministry said.
Telecommunications Regulator of Cambodia spokesman Im Vutha told The Post last month: “Generally, all operators have an obligation to self-declare their revenues and taxes to the state every year.
“Most of the operators that fail to comply with our regulations fall into the category of ISPs and VoIP service providers.” Vutha said.
On October 21, the ministry announced it had revoked the licences of 16 telecoms operators and suspended that of another, citing failure to comply with obligations.
Vutha noted that the categories of the licences were those for mobile operators, ISPs and broadband wireless access (BWA) providers.
Other types included those for VoIP service providers, providers of network systems, and satellite positioning and navigation services, he said.
