Hi, which line has the best internet coverage all over Cambodia? Smart seems to be the best being so cheap and all. Won't be calling around a lot so 3G is the most important for me.

A big thumbs up to Mobitel Cellcard from me. I started off with Metfone, but gave up after a week, having had all sorts of issues with the sim card in my iphone.

No problems at all with Mobitel. Cheap international calls using their 177 prefix . . . around 6cents a minute to key places like US, Thailand, HK, Singapore etc and the 3G is excellent

Best package is $5 for 2gb lasting a month. Best thing about that is that if there is balance left on your data and you auto-renew the subscription monthly, then the new months 2gb is added to whatever is left over. Useful for tethering to you laptop if you're out and about and need wifi connection.

I just tested it on my phone. In the test the maximum speed was recorded at 1.4mb per second, and average was 725kbs. Not lightning fast like 4G, but perfectly acceptable for normal use.

Re package size, 2gb per month for $5 is the highest package available on prepaid SIM, but you can of course buy as many of those as you like. So, if you want 6gb, but subscribe three times and the data ' bucket' accumulates.

I dont think you'll get much variation from those rates, to be honest. Even if a provider promises better, it's unlikely to have the infrastructure to guarantee delivery. Then, of course, there will be localised differences.

There are 3 big Phone operators in Cambodia currently.

Cellcard (also known as Metfone)
Smart (merged with Hello Axiom)
Metfone

DO NOT use Metfone!!! They have the WORST customer service. They also ONLY provide 3 months non usage, before deactivation of your account (that means if you do not use your sim card for 3 months, bye bye sim card).

Cellcard and Smart give you 1 year non usage.

Metfone service also say YES to everything you say. They are like retarded parrots. DO NOT USE!!.
Say NO to spam. Say NO to MetFone.
