Telecom Division Update

While Oktacom continues to focus on FCP, it is simultaneously working on growing its relationships with strategic partners that have an established footprint in developed telecom markets globally. The purpose of partnering with these types of strategic companies is to provide its portfolio of acquisition companies and existing wholesale telecom business with access to new already established markets. This should ultimately increase connectivity for easier and cheaper long distance calling, which should result in higher revenues for the Company. Over the years, Oktacom has successfully completed agreements with reputable partners including, but not limited to, major telecom operators in Germany (Deutsche Telekom), Italy (TIS), China (China Mobile), Dominican Republic, Turkey, United States, Spain and France.
