Phnom Penh – Cambodia’s leading mobile network operator Metfone was recently honoured with the world’s premier business award for the best new product or service of the year.
The award was received on behalf of Metfone by its parent company Viettel at the 2017 International Business Awards – Stevie Awards held in Barcelona, Spain on October 21.
The product that brought Metfone the prestigious prize is its unlimited YouTube package, launched in Cambodia in 2016.
Metfone’s representative said the award would further uplift the Metfone brand domestically and internationally.
“Winning the Stevie Awards means a lot to the Metfone brand in Cambodia. It shows the super product/service quality trusted by Cambodian subscribers,” said the company representative.
“We are proud of the achievement. And this is another huge step forward for Metfone.”
In late 2016, Metfone rolled out an affordable data plan called unlimited YouTube package to its subscribers.
The package allows users to watch videos on YouTube with high resolution and high-definition images with Metfone’s 4G network.
“What’s most special of the unlimited YouTube package is that it is very cheap and suitable for the Cambodian users. You only pay a dollar for a week and 3 dollars for a month, and you can enjoy watching YouTube without a limit,” says the representative of Metfone.
Metfone is the only operator that is capable of providing this service with its largest network coverage in Cambodia. It is now serving 97 percent of the population.
