Thomas Hundt, CEO of Latelz Co Ltd, the parent company of Smart Mobile, remarked recently that even with so many players in the market, Cambodia’s mobile sector has room to grow.  Smart Mobile, with its launch last week, is now the country’s eighth mobile service provider.  Its coverage includes both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.   


“Despite the financial crisis, mobile phone service is a basic need for people, especially in developing countries,” said Hundt. “Only around 24% of the Cambodian population has access to mobile phones.”
