    PHNOM PENH, May 3 (Xinhua) -- There are only some 13,000 Cambodians, or less than one-thousandth of the total population, subscribe to internet, according to an industry survey published on Saturday by English-language newspaper the Phnom Penh Post.

    Most of them are in capital Phnom Penh and tourism province Siem Reap, said the survey carried out in 14 cities of the country.

    Some 21.5 percent of the users are not satisfied with cost, 44.6 percent with reliability and 5.7 percent with speed, it said.

    There are now nine internet service providers in Cambodia, with the top one sharing 28.8 percent of the market and the bottom one 1 percent, the survey added.

    Most internet operators of Cambodia now use satellite to serve their customers. Nationwide fiber web infrastructure for internet service is still being constructed. This makes internet a luxurious enjoyment for ordinary Cambodians.
