NEW YORK, May 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- iQSTEL, Inc. (USOTC: IQST) today announced the network carrier partnership under development that would accelerate iQSTEL's entry into the 5G market could now also include an equity component with iQSTEL acquiring 10% of the network carrier.
The target carrier owns and operates a larger fiber-optic (FO) network with hundreds of miles of fiber optic network covering a combined 40 million direct and indirect clients and potential clients in America.
As previously announced, iQSTEL's management presented a partnership proposal to the FO network's Board of Directors two weeks ago. iQSTEL has since started to explore the acquisition of 10% of the capital stock of the FO network. The non-controlling, minor equity position is currently held by an independent shareholder. The acquisition of the 10% position is part of the ongoing partnership negotiations.
