What are the options for Internet connectivity in Cambodia? Are setup fees involved? What areas does the plan cover? What speeds are advertised? What speeds do you actually get? How much bandwidth is included? Are there overage charges?
Metfone unlimited (really unlimited, no catch) internet, $25/ month 256kb. Might be $30 for new accounts. Mine got boosted from 128kbs to 256 free, I think new accounts are $30. Never had connection problems, not once in nearly six months, they come to my apartment to collect the money.

That's cable - metfone with a line is alright. It's the dongle that's bollox
i might have to get on this deal, did you just go down to the shop and ask them to hook you up, simple as?

not me - I went cable to dongle, and me missus does all the gabbing anyway. Ask in the metfone thread - someone posted something relevant IIRC.
bollox = bad bollox
problem with cable is you can't take it with you. If you're stationery its prolly better.
I use Ezecom fiber optic. The deal is $81pm for a 1mb connection off peak and a 502kb connection during peak hours. Off peak = 7pm -7am weekdays and all weekend. The off peak connections is good and stable but the peak hours connection can be much lower than the promised 502kb. Downloads are unlimited so you can just set your torrents up when you go to bed and when you are at work and not have to worry about things. I've also found their staff to be very helpful over the phone when you have a problem.

That's the best deal I've heard yet. What are the installation fees? And do they charge a ton for their modem? or do they try and rent the modem? Or is fiber optic the usb? and if it is the usb, can a second computer connect to the usb through wifi?
Goodbye America, if anyone asks, say we were shipwrecked. Goodbye to your junk and your old hideola. Have a nice day.
I am on the exact same deal as KiR. Overall I'd recommend Ezecom. Most other expats I know use it too. Very good customer service by Cambodian standards. One downside is that they occasionally do a 'shared ip' thing which makes it really difficult to download from Megaupload, Rapidshare and the likes.
I use Internet Download Manager in the evening to maximize the speed of my downloads and it works out pretty well for me.
To answer Deanween, I rent the modem, but it comes within the 81 bucks. I have a router so that two people can connect on it with the Wi-fi.
A tree born crooked will never grow straight.
I had ezecom fiber for a few months. They gave me 2.5mb/s and a static IP for $250. The connection was rock solid and I didn't have any complaints. Online then offered 4mb/s for the same price. Both connections had symmetric upload/download and both were unlimited. Online ended up being the best connection I had in Cambodia.
The ISP's that I used in Cambodia were:
When cancelling services the only company to collect their equipment was Mfone. I did however return the online fiber modem as I didn't want to do bad to the distributor. He worked hard and probably would have had to pay for it out of his own pocket. So unless the mother in law has sold it for scrap I have a number of different kind of modems lying around at my house in Kompong Cham.
I hear Chuan Wei do 1mb/s unlimted fiber for $90 a month.
