MediaRing announced the official launch of AngkorNet at the Cambodia ICT World Expo 2006, held in Phnom Penh May 4-6.

AngkorNet is the first Internet service provider in Cambodia to offer tiered and bundled packages of high-speed Internet access and other data applications using new WiMAX technology. AngkorNet delivers up to 90% WiMAX coverage in Phnom Penh.

Said Khaw Kheng Joo, chief executive officer of MediaRing, "With a population of approximately 15 million people, Cambodia has a relatively low telecommunications penetration rate and only a handful of carriers authorized to provide Internet services. With the launch of AngkorNet and WiMAX services, MediaRing, as well as our partner, Anana Computer Ltd., is well-positioned to tap on the growth potential that Cambodia's telecommunication sector offers."

"AngkorNet service is Instant Internet. You just take the wireless modem and plug it into your computers. It's as simple as that. Cambodia's customers currently using the services are amazed by the speed and the simplicity of getting on-line. They love the fact that the modem unit is so portable," said Channda Sok, chief executive officer for CDC.
