NTT Communications licensed in Cambodia

JAPANESE company NTT Communications has received a licence to offer internet services in Cambodia.

The firm aims to offer its services particularly to Japanese companies as well as multi-national corporations, NTT Communications Country Manager Miyazaki Hajime wrote yesterday.

The Phnom Penh Special Economic Zone – which is home to a number of Japanese-owned businesses – was one area it was targeting in particular.

“More Japanese [corporations] are coming into PPSEZ to establish new factories,” he said, adding it aimed to provide internet to multinationals entering the Kingdom.

“We are seeing demand for high-quality service not only from Japanese companies but from other countries’ companies.”

The NTT Communications Cambodia office opened in the Phnom Penh Center in July 2010, and the firm announced it had obtained the required licence from the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications on Friday.
“[It] took about a half year because the process of licensing in MPTC was changing,” Miyazaki Hajime said.

Rates start at US$340 per month for its 512 kbps service, along with a $150 setup fee, according to a press release. NTT claims to provide the service on a leased line rather than shared ADSL. In Asia, it also offers its services in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand.
