Sotelco Aims To Launch 4G by Year-End

Cambodian mobile operator Sotelco plans to launch a 4G LTE network in the capital Phnom Penh by the end of the year, the company’s chairman Hout Vanthan stated in a statement. In April 2013 international telecoms group Vimpelcom sold its entire 90% stake in Sotelco to Vanthan, increasing the local businessman’s ownership to 100%. Vanthan said that he hopes the launch of high speed mobile data services will increase Sotelco’s share in the wireless market

Smart Axiata launched the mobile sector’s first commercial LTE services at six locations in Phnom Penh at the start of the year.
