Up-stream ISPs of Cambodian Internet Service Providers, 2009-12

Report on up-stream peering relationships of all Cambodian internet service providers (ISPs) in December 2009.



Update (2011-12-04): Note that a friend has made an up-to-date version of the Cambodian peering graph. It is probably more interesting than this page (unless you want to know the historical situation). It is also fancier in some other ways. Have a look!

BTW, MekongNet sucks! They have copied this work verbatim without my permission nor credit and posted it at their useless “news” site. They have even removed my copyright from the overall peering graph. I think they are pretty pathetic. People like that stop me from wanting to update this site any more.

Ok, so the actual article begins here:

This time I decided to have a look at the peering relationships of various Cambodian internet service providers (ISPs). The data is based on several BGP routing table snapshots from various international sources during about a week in the middle of December 2009. Thus, the data is old already at the time of publishing.

One motivation for performing this research was to study the impact of Telcotech’s much hyped entry to the Cambodian wholesale internet capacity provider market by having a comparison point at an earlier time.

Have a look at the previous report on Cambodian ISPs for other details about the operators listed in this report. If an ISP is not listed in this article, then we did not find any route announcements originating from their autonomous system number(s) in the global routing table.

Generally any ISP is purchasing whole-sale bandwidth from an up-stream ISP. In most cases the routing announcement paths indicate customer-client relationships between ISPs but in some cases this may not be true. Therefore this research should be seen only as a report on visible routing table announcements. We are not making any statements about the listed operators’ business relationships.

We have not tried to evaluate the weight of each announced route. Therefore it is not possible to know from this research if the reported routing paths are primary routes or backup routes (used mainly when a primary route happens to go down). Some available backup routes might not be visible in the BGP4 routing table snapshots that were used.

Also we have no way of determining the physical (layer 1 & 2) carrier used to interconnect the ISPs.

    How much badwidgth for Cambodia get way now?

    • ioi


      Unfortunately there is no way for myself to find out the total available up-stream bandwidth in Cambodia. It is difficult or nearly impossible to measure. I would have to have insider information from each of the ISPs that have international transit circuits.

      It could be possible to roughly estimate the maximum potential bandwidth by looking at the fiber optic lines and microwave transmission circuits going across the borders, but the reality is that there is currently much excess capacity in the fibers reserved for future expansion.

      The amount of real available bandwidth mostly depends on the contracts the Cambodian ISPs have with their up-stream providers. Providers are generally not willing to publish that kind of information.

    Hi ioi,

    I am currently using Excell internet via CDMA mobile phone dial up modem, the speed is good enough for me, but I have a problem with error package received from Excell.
    Do you why there is error package on the receivng part? but at the time I use GSM modem there is problem at all with the error package.
    Is it because of CDMA technology?

    • ioi


      Hi Lou,

      Sorry, I do not have answer to your question.

      I have not used Excell service and I am not familiar with CDMA technology.

      Are there any other readers of this blog who would have experience on this topic?


  • Hi oi.ioi.io, I think u late for update, I hear now in cambodia have so many ISP ex: telcotech, opennet…….Could u help us search and update with yr database. thanks

    • ioi


      Hi Imfree4u,

      The last time I checked there was not enough changes in the peering relationships to make an updated report interesting. This was at the beginning of March if I remember correctly.

      I am planning to make a new report soon when I have time, as half a year has passed since the making of this original report.

      Best Regards,
      ioi

    I’m really interested with your website… And I would like to request you help to update information about ISPs and Telecoms in Cambodia because nowadays there are many new ISPs and Telecoms……..

    Hope to see your update soon… Thanks in advance !!!

    Thanks for such a good and useful information, I hope to get updated on this kind of info. and Telecom, ISPs.
    Thanks
