Alternet Systems Signs Letter of Intent
to Merge with TekVoice Comunications to Deploy VoIP and Wireless
Broadband Telecom Networks Throughout Latin America
VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA -- Alternet Systems Inc. ( NASD
OTCBB: ASYI ), announces it has executed a letter of intent
(LOI) agreement to merge with TekVoice Communications, Inc.
of Miami, Florida. TekVoice is a telecommunications services
company with operations in North and South America. TekVoice
revenues were $3 million in 2006, and the company is forecasting
significant growth in 2007.
The combined entity will be called Alternet Systems Inc.
and its primary business will be to acquire and develop wireless
broadband networks in under-served countries in Latin America
and the Caribbean, delivering voice, data and content services
to customers in these regions. Alternet will offer a portfolio
of next-generation wireless broadband and telecom solutions
for government, business, schools, hospitals and community
Improving education and health services through broadband
Internet access is a key component of raising the living standards
in developing countries. The other major component is affordable
and accessible telecom services said Patrick Fitzsimmons,
President of Alternet. Combining Alternet with TekVoice
is the ideal strategy to achieve our goal of offering a complete
wireless telecommunications solution for this growing market.
The combined company offering will provide cost-effective,
wireless telecom solutions, which have the greatest impact
in developing regions of the world, such as Latin America.
Low Internet-usage rates in Latin America are well below other
developing countries, specially compared to Asia. Risk of
further widening the digital divide in Latin America, is a
concern shared by both public and private sector entities,
particularly as an inhibitor to sustained, long-term growth.
The combination of Alternets proprietary software
systems, with the TekVoice VoIP based telecommunications offerings,
supplied over a cost-effective network platform, will significantly
improve the way rural telecom services, education and medical
information technology are delivered in the future said
Henryk Dabrowski CEO of TekVoice. This partnership is
a key milestone in advancing Alternet to Latin American markets.
