How hard is it to find places to get on the internet in Cambodia. I will need to check in with my family from time to time

Internet is everywhere in cambodia and we had wifi in many of our hotels however it is also painfully slow and very intermittent at least compared to Vietnam and Cambodia. It is fine for doing email but trying to Skype or upload photos to a website was not possible with the "free" connections we had.
We ended up buying a prepaid wireless card from "Online" that worked quite well (most of our hotels were in an "Online" hotspot. We needed the extra speed to be able to upload photos and such to our website.
I concur with smkuchta. We had no problem finding internet at cafes or even wifi hotspots in the major places (Siem Reap, PP, Kampot, even Kep) but it's not fast nor 100% reliable. If you want to keep in touch by email, it's likely sufficient, but Skype isn't going to like it, nor will you be able to upload a lot of content to blogs, etc.
