More than 60 new network sites built by Smart in Siem Reap
Sixty-eight new network base station sites have been built in Siem Reap province as part of Smart Axiata’s 90 million USD investment plan in 2021 to expand and improve its network across the Kingdom. The newly completed sites in Siem Reap are among the 350 new sites announced by Smart last month, which will enhance Smart’s 4G LTE network for users nationwide and helps to ensure the network is fully ready to meet the growing customer demands during the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdown situation.
To showcase the improved network and coverage in Siem Reap, Smart is offering existing prepaid subscribers in the province 1GB of data for free until May 21, which they can redeem in the SmartNas app any day before that date.
For new customers who would like to enjoy the expanded Smart network coverage, a 50% discount on special number Smart 4G SIM cards worth up to 54 USD is being offered when purchased at any Smart Shop or official Smart Dealer across the Kingdom.
“Investments into Cambodia’s telecoms infrastructure have never been more important, and as the leading telecommunications company that strives to make people’s lives better, we understand the urgency and will continue to provide unparalleled connections to Cambodians, especially in these critical times. Our customers in Siem Reap will now enjoy significant network improvements thanks to the newly built sites across the province,” said Smart Axiata’s Chief Executive Officer Thomas Hundt.
Smart currently operates more than 3,000 network base station sites across the Kingdom, allowing its 8 million subscribers to enjoy an exceptional digital experience on its 4G LTE network, which covers 91.5% of the population. With the rapid adoption of 4G by Smart’s subscribers, Smart is also progressing to gradually shut down its 3G network in 2021, repurposing the residual 3G frequency spectrum for its 4G network.
Existing Smart 3G customers can upgrade to a 4G SIM card for free, receiving a 900 USD on-net bonus, valid for three months, when they do so.
