The Kingdom came in 108th out of 110 countries in the Digital Quality of Life Index 2021
According to Khmer Times, Cambodia is committed to improving its digital infrastructure after a survey indicates they rank 108 out of 110 countries in terms of online security.
A survey by cybersecurity company Surfshark says Cambodia ranks 108th on its Digital Quality of Life (DQL) Index 2021.
The study ranks countries’ DQL based on five criteria: internet affordability, internet quality, e-security, e-government, and electronic infrastructure. Cambodia came in at 100, 105, 110, 100, and 85, respectively.
Surfshark Chief Executive Officer Vytautas Kaziukonis, said, “Digital opportunities have proved to be more important than ever during the Covid-19 crisis, stressing the importance for every country to ensure fully remote operational capacities for their economies.”
“The index sets the basis for meaningful discussions about how digital advancement impacts a country’s prosperity and where improvements can be made,” Kaziukonis added.
Chea Vandeth, Cambodia’s telecommunications minister, says the government is committed to improving digital infrastructure, planning to install telephone atennas in all districts and communes across the Kingdom by 2027.
To improve telecom infrastructure, including telephone, internet services, and promote e-commerce, the ministry has been working on a digital roadmap for 2021-2035.
The rollout of 5G is still uncertain as telecom companies wait for the government to give regulatory clearance and access to the spectrum of radio waves needed for the high-speed service.
