Smart vs. Cellcard: fastest mobile Internet provider

All you need to know about the best mobile Internet providers in the Kingdom of Cambodia! As of 2017, there are nearly ten mobile operators offering mobile network services in Cambodia. These operators are Cellard (the first and leading operator), Smart (super fast growth), Metfone (big by subscribers), CooTel, SEATEL (remarkable offerings), and qb.

In 2016, Smart was the winner of Cambodia’s fastest mobile network, according to Speedtest by Ookla. This 2017, Cellcard bounces back to the top of the list. Does the test and award mean everything for these leading network service providers? Not everything.

First of all, while Cellcard is now advertising itself as Cambodia’s fastest provider for mobile Internet 4G LTE, it’s hard to recognize the improved speed. Until mid 2017, only a few smartphones support this latest 4.5G.

The race of the titans: Smart (Axiata) and Cellcard

Shortly after Cellcard was named the fastest mobile Internet service provider of Cambodia, Smart unveiled the newest technology, 4.5G. Until recently, most Cambodia mobile network service providers offer 3G and 4G only. With 4.5G mobile Internet, users can expect to enjoy faster speed than ever, 40 mbps for download and above 30 mbps for upload. 4G LTE Internet users in Cambodia can get about 10 Mbps. So the 4.5G (built for future 5G) is a significant improvement in term of speed.
