This is the third time in a row Cellcard, who is now preparing the deployment of 5G services in Cambodia, earns the recognition.

Cellcard attained a speed score of 17.51, ahead of its closest competitor Smart Axiata, whose score was 11.36. Metfone, who came third, achieved a score of 3.46.

Ian Watson, Cellcard CEO, said the award reflects Cellcard’s commitment to providing the best possible service to customers, who continue to demand higher and higher volumes of data.

“Data is playing an ever-increasing role in people’s lives as they increase their daily usage of digital services,” he said. “We are already planning for data usage to change dramatically in the very near future as our pre5G and 5G network enables enhanced mobile broadband.

“Cellcard customers in some locations can already reach download speeds of up to 150 megabits per second, with selected 3CA and MIMO sites that can reach up to 300 Mbps.

“Soon 5G speeds will surpass 1 Gbps,” he said.

Mr Watson said Cellcard will continue to invest in its 4G network nation-wide to enhance coverage.

“Today’s achievement is another step forward in our leadership journey. With our plan to launch 5G, we will continue to invest heavily in our premium 4GLTE service, making sure we maintain the superior speed, reliability, and quality across the country,” he said.

David Khoo, Ookla director for Asia-Pacific, said Cellcard achieved an average speed of 18.99 Mbps for downloads and 14.02 Mbps for uploads.

“Cellcard achieved very high speed scores compared to all mobile operators in Cambodia,” he said.
