A few years ago, Internet access in Cambodia was expensive, slow and difficult to find. Today, hundreds of Internet cafes dot Phnom Penh. Siem Reap and Sihanoukville also have plenty of Internet options. Even the provincial capitals, such as Kampong Cham, Kampong Chhnang and Kampong Speu can offer on-line access to the world as Cambodia catapults into the computer age. But the standards of service of many of these cafes varies immensely. One place where that is not a problem is the Sharaton Business Center; one of the newest and most luxurious centers in Phnom Penh. Plush seats, air-conditioning and up-to-date equipment make the Business Center a home-away-from-home for visiting business people and locals who choose to visit an Internet cafe rather than go to the trouble of organizing home connection. Coffee and refreshments are also available. Sann Kangnara, Business Center help desk supervisor, says the center can lighten the load for busy customers with the wide range of secretarial services it also offers. "We can help with most office services, including typing in English and Khmer, phone and fax, Unlike many Internet cafes, novice users and customers who need a hand surfing the net can find skilled assistance at the Sharaton's Business Center.
Miss Kangnara is a graduate of the International Institute of Cambodia (IIC) and is not only highly qualified, but more than willing to help.
