Satellite Internet

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Satellite will drop with rain or heavy cloud. Also as you will be doing back channel via satellite it will crawl
Check the 3 main providers for 4G coverage

As others have said. It is unlikely you will get 4G in the village, you should be able to get 3G though.

As far as I am aware there is no satellite internet available..... yet.

Has anyone tried a mobile phone amplifier? Maybe on top of a long pole? All you need is 4G.

4g or 3g will depend on what masts you have near your village. Satellite internet is 1 way. Your request for a page goes out over normal cable\telephone and the page itself is transmitted over sataelite. Not sure if anyone still uses them as we have moved on. I believ you can get routers now that will aggregate your 3g/4g and or normal line. So in theory if you got 2x 2mb sims you would get 4mb. Works best apparently if you have 2 different operators. https://www.patton.com/bonding-routers/bd004/

Without knowing where, it's impossible to say but you'd be surprised by the strong HSDPA/3.75G and 4g network in the sticks. Not rock solid reliable, but niethe5is my smart connection in town. Whenever there's a power cut around BKK3, the Smart towers seem to go offline too.

You can use the 3g with a directional yagi antenna pointed towards the tower you would be surprised how much faster is the 3g with an antenna compared to a medium strength connection by phone alone. Almost 3 times faster for my experience with temporary internet connection. Even if the connection is barely working a yagi antenna on a stick will give you full bars if you can get an unobstructed line of sight to the tower.

Thank you for your comment.
