Our commitment to using the power of technology to help communities thrive and enable people achieve their potential continues to drive our work at EZECOM. One of our most important goals is to expand access to the benefits of digital technology beyond our client base to reach those in need.

EzeCampus is the name we have given to EZECOM’s support to education in Cambodia. In June of 2010 the first step in the EzeCampus program was announced. In cooperation with the Ministry of Education EZECOM installed fibre optic connection is the top universities of Phnom Penh, giving the students at their university access to high speed internet. Further EZECOM entitled students from all universities to 10% discount on EZECOM Pulse packages for their home.
In August 2012 we announced the second phase of the EzeCampus project: We have provided internet service and computer equipment to 50 general secondary education schools and teacher training institutions in the country. With this agreement EZECOM will provide broader educational resources to classes in various provinces countrywide. It also means that distance learning may become a reality for hundreds of thousands of students nationwide in the near future. The donation in the form of free Internet service and network installments is worth tens of thousands of US dollars.
Regarding the project Paul Blanche-Horgan, CEO of Ezecom, said, “Ezecom always wishes to use its IT capacity to contribute to the country’s development. This plan will allow us to use our 9000-kilometer optical cable network to provide educational opportunities to youth across the country.” Among all our corporate social responsibility projects education takes a special role and we are always looking for ways to contribute to Cambodia’s development.
At nine of the top universities of Cambodia EZECOM provides free internet for all students to use and help with their study. And if you want to continue to study at home – EZECOM can give you a special 10% discount on our Pulse Packages. This promotion is only applicable if you study at one of our EzeCampus universities.
