MANCHESTER, N.H., Nov. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- QED Connect, Inc. (OTC: QEDN.PK) ("QED Connect"), today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire a 15% stake in a Mobile Over Internet Protocol (MOIP) application owned by a Canadian distribution company. In addition, QED Connect will receive an ongoing royalty on total sales in exchange for providing funding and acting in an advisory capacity regarding marketing strategies and tactics. The definitive agreement is scheduled to close within 45 days contingent on approval of the respective companies' Boards of Directors. Additional information will be released this quarter.
In addition to mobile data services the application utilizes the data channel to provide telephone service for mobile wireless users offering a cost effective alternative to cellular technology. The Company's proprietary IP-based telecommunication platform will offer wireless services to consumers, small business and enterprise customers in the Canadian market at a substantial reduction in cost.
Canadians pay the highest mobile bills in the world according to Wireless North.ca and a CTIA survey. Many cellular operators offer unlimited usage at a fixed price, however, coverage limitations and roaming restrictions often push actual costs to more than double the initial signup fees. The proprietary Knowledge Management System and exclusive wireless application provided by the Canadian company will offer a competitive alternative for the wireless customer.
Tom Makmann, President and CEO of QED Connect stated, "Our new partner is uniquely positioned in this very exciting market to provide, for the first time, an alternative to expensive traditional wireless service. In addition to the Canadian market, the technology can be adapted to other areas where cellular service is either not available or expensive to implement. QED is very enthusiastic to be working with the Company and believes that they will be a contributor to our strategic plans. They have projected to reach revenue generation of $5 million per month within the next two years. This agreement continues QED Connect's commitment to becoming a 'business development company' in 2012."
