MobilityOne’s Cambodia deals

MOBILITYONE has entered into agreements with several domestic telecom firms to sell their prepaid reloads, but has not been “aggressively expanding” its business in Cambodia, according to the e-commerce company’s 2010 annual report

Hello Axiata, Latelz, Cambodia Advance Communications, Viettel Cambodia, Sotelco and Applifone – which last year were the parent companies of Hello, Smart, QB, Metfone, Beeline and Star-Cell, respectively – were listed among the company’s new clients.  Smart and Star-Cell have since merged, however.

The firm’s technology aims to compete with other mobile phone top-up methods such as scratch cards and Refresh Mobile’s electronic service.

Despite the agreements, MobilityOne said its business focus had been outside the Kingdom.

“MobilityOne has not been aggressively expanding its business in Cambodia, as the group has been focusing its time and investments on expanding its business operations in Malaysia,” the company said.

Mobility One representatives could not be reached for comment by The Post yesterday
