Cambodia Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications

Cambodia Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications
Telecom Cambodia, founded in 2006 to expand telecom operating department of the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications. Landline service in Phnom Penh and other provincial cities is available; mobile phone coverage is rapidly expanding in rural areas.
Mobile-phone systems are broadly used in urban areas to bypass deficiencies in the fixed-line network; fixed-line connections stand at well less than 1 per 100 persons; mobile-cellular usage, aided by increasing competition among service providers, is increasing and stands at nearly 20 per 100 persons.
Ministry of Posts & Telecommunications of Cambodia (MPTC) was the policy maker, regulator and operator in Posts and Telecommunications before 2006. Thenceforth, the operation of Telecommunications had been separated from MPTC to be The Telecom Cambodia (T.C.)
The Ministry of Post and Telecommunications Cambodia (MPTC) has announced the official launch of an autonomous and independent regulatory authority charged with overseeing the country’s telecoms industry. The Telecommunication Regulator of Cambodia (TRC) was approved in a sub-decree by Prime Minister Hun Sen in February 2012, and will assume the responsibility for implementing policy determined by the MPTC, promoting fair competition in the market, licensing operators, managing spectrum, regulating interconnection, promoting universal access, monitoring and regulating tariffs, and resolving disputes between operators, among other things.
There is currently no overarching telecoms law in Cambodia; in its absence the sector is governed by decrees and sub-decrees issued by the MPTC and the prime minister’s office. The TRC aims to make rules clearer and more transparent in a bid to prevent disputes between operators on issues such as pricing and overlapping frequencies.

Communications in Cambodia specifically the postal, telegraph and telegram services are regulated under the Ministry of Telecommunications, transport and posts were restored throughout most of the country in the early 1980s during the People's Republic of Kampuchea regime after being disrupted under the Khmer Rouge.
In January 1987, the Soviet-aided Intersputnik space communications station began operation in Phnom Penh and established two-way telecommunication links between the Cambodian capital and the cities of Moscow, Hanoi, Vientiane and Paris. The completion of the earth satellite station restored the telephone and telex links among Phnom Penh, Hanoi, and other countries for the first time since 1975.
Although telecommunications services were initially limited to the government, these advances in communications helped break down the country's isolation, both internally and internationally.

Today, with the availability of mobile phones, communications are open to all, though the country's Prime Minister Hun Sen decreed that 3G mobile phones would not be allowed to support video calling.
