Mobile Phones and Internet Use in Cambodia 2016

By Kimchhoy Phong, Lihol Srou, and Javier Solá

This study examines Cambodian phone users’ knowledge, attitudes and practices in relation to Khmer-language reading, writing, and search habits, and identifies the factors motivating (and discouraging) their use of Khmer script. It also attempts to identify changes and trends in the way Khmer-enabled phones are used, including as a means of accessing the Internet — in particular Facebook. The study’s findings respond to a need for data on phones’ effectiveness as a tool with which government and civil society organizations can communicate with citizens and beneficiaries throughout the country, and provide them with information and services in Khmer.
