CELLCARD ANNOUNCES MASSIVE TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENT
Cellcard, the telecommunications market leader, recently announced a massive investment in new technology amounting to 200 million USD, the largest single technology investment in Cambodia’s history.
According to a company release, the investment will provide Cellcard with the latest cutting-edge communications technology. Upon completion of the project, Cellcard will provide Cambodia a network platform that is as advanced as most of its Asian neighbors like Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia. When asked about the reasons for such a large investment, David Spriggs; CEO; commented: “Communications technology is developing at a rapid pace. With this investment we’ll be able to ensure that we bring the highest level of communications technology to our subscribers now, as well as have the platform to incorporate new developments as and when they occur”. ‘This new technology allows us to think out of the box. It will allow us to develop innovations beyond the normal functions of a mobile phone, and we’re confident that by the end of this year we’ll change the way people think about and use their mobile phone’ – David Spriggs, CEO.
For the last six months the company has been extremely busy planning and implementing a complete upgrade of its network to facilitate new and better quality services. The first stage of this plan, to upgrade the North West region of Cambodia to the next generation technology, was completed in May. From June onwards the company will be expanding coverage nationwide and introducing new innovative services that will change the way people use their phone and improve the way they conduct their daily life or activities.
