Currently there is a limited public trading market for our stock on OTCPINK under the symbol “TPTW.”

Our Key Operating Divisions:

TPT SpeedConnect: ISP and Telecom (Held within TPT’s majority controlled subsidiary Asberry 22 Holdings, Inc.)

The Company completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of SpeedConnect LLC (“SpeedConnect”) for $1.75 million, including the assumption of all contracts and liabilities pertinent to operations and conveyed them into a wholly-owned subsidiary TPT SpeedConnect. SpeedConnect was founded in 2002 and operates as a national, predominantly rural, wireless telecommunications residential and commercial Internet Service Provider (ISP). TPT SpeedConnect’s primary business model is subscription based, monthly reoccurring revenues, from wireless delivered, high-speed Internet connections utilizing its company built and owned national network. SpeedConnect also resells third-party satellite Internet, DSL Internet, IP telephony and DISH TV products. This Acquisition closed on May 7, 2019.

SpeedConnect was a privately-held Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) provider. Today, we believe TPT SpeedConnect serves approximately 2,000 residential and commercial wireless broadband Internet customers, in Arizona, Idaho, Michigan, Montana and Texas.

TPT SpeedConnect is a full-service ISP. The company’s main back office is run by company employees, and includes, network management, network monitoring and maintenance, significant allocations of registered address in public IP4 and IP6 space, employee based customer service, installation services, automated resources and application based scheduling and tracking, paper, ACH, credit card, and email billing, warehousing, fulfillment, integrated customer premise provisioning, walled garden collections and customer self-restarts, bandwidth usage tracking, integrated, secure, and deep financial and operations dash board reporting, collections, accounting, payables, owned and licensed backhaul, intelligent bandwidth management, consumption rated billing, customer payment portals, and all wrapped in a mature, first hit on all search engines, Internet Brand. The company today services approximately 2,000 residential and commercial Internet customers over its approximately 100+-cellular tower footprint across 5 Midwestern States.

Today’s urban ISP landscape is highly competitive and dominated by some of the world’s largest companies. Names like Comcast, AT&T, Cox, Charter and DISH are household words. Home Internet service has become synonymous with Cable. However, this is limited to the high-density top 100 markets. Beyond that the competition becomes more small licensed free wireless providers and satellite. Wire-line providers, unless backed with government subsidies, do not build beyond 15 homes per street mile. SpeedConnect services both rural and non-rural areas, and historically has done well in both marketplaces, however the margins are improved in the more rural areas due to reduced voluntary and involuntary customer attrition.

TPT SpeedConnect’s key suppliers include but are not limited to; Juniper, ZTE, Huawei, Cisco, Sandvine, American Tower, SBA Tower, Crown Castle, CenturyLink, SuddenLink, South Dakota Networks, 123 dot net, Genesee Telephone, Air Advantage Fiber, Iron Mountain, ConVergence, CDW, Talley, Tessco, Bursma Electronics, DragonWave, Ceragon Networks, Telrad, Arris, AP, APD, Plante Morran, Fifth Third, Sprint and others.

An Agreement and Plan of Merger ("Agreement") was made and entered into as of March 24, 2023 by and among TPT SpeedConnect LLC, a Colorado Limited Liability Company (wholly-owned subsidiary of TPT Global Tech, Inc.) ("SPC"), and Asberry 22 Holdings, Inc., a Delaware Corporation ("ASHI"), and SPC Acquisition, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of ASHI, domiciled in Colorado ("Acquisition Sub") primarily for the opportunities of capital raising. SPC then converted to a Corporate entity and Acquisition Submerged with and into SPC (the "Merger"). The separate corporate existence of Acquisition Sub ceased and SPC continues as the surviving corporation in the Merger and as wholly-owned subsidiary of ASHI. All of the properties, rights and privileges, and power of SPC, vest in the Subsidiary, and all debts, liabilities and duties of SPC are the debts, liabilities and duties of the Subsidiary. The shares of common stock of Acquisition Sub issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time is converted into and exchange for 1,000 validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable shares of the Subsidiary's common stock.

TPT Global Tech, Inc. was issued a total of 4,658,318 common shares of ASHI (the "ASHI Common Stock"), as a result of the merger, constituting 86% of the then issued and outstanding common stock. TPT Global Tech, Inc. also has purchased all of the 500,000 Series A Super Majority Voting Preferred Shares of ASHI for a convertible note payable of $500,000 due in 180 days which bears interest at 6.0% per annum and is convertible to shares of the Company’s common stock at 85% of the volume weighted average price for the preceding 5 market trading days. This note payable has not been paid and is considered delinquent. Discussions are ongoing with the holder of the note payable.

Blue Collar Production Division

Our production division, Blue Collar Productions (formerly Blue Collar, Inc.), creates original live action and animated content productions and has produced hundreds of hours of material for the television, theatrical, home entertainment and new media markets. Mr. Rowen, our CEO of Blue Collar, works closely with major television networks, cable channels and film studios to produce home entertainment products.

The film features Tommy Hilfiger, Russell Simmons and a host of notable street wear designers. They are also in pre-production on The 29 Club, a look at notable musicians who all tragically died at age 29; Memories in Music, which is an in-depth study of the impact of memory through music on Alzheimer’s patients and Faces of Vegas, an exploration into the culture of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Blue Collar Productions currently has the feature film Looking For Alaska, based on the John Green novel, producing for Paramount Pictures. The company produced for a pilot for MTV for a possible series, “My Jam” aired in the Fall of 2016. Blue Collar has also produced two seasons of “Caribbean’s Next Top Model Season.

Technology Company Overview

Our Company was formed as the successor of two US Corporations, Ally Pharma US, a Pharmaceutical technology research company founded in 1988 and TPT Global Inc. a Media Content, Voice and Data, Interconnect and International gateway provider. TPT Global Tech is headquartered in San Diego, California and operates as a holding company for its Media, Smartphone, Network, Content and SaaS (Software as a Services) domestic and international businesses.

Historically and through key acquisitions we launched Telecommunications wholesale and retail operations in the United States and Internationally. These first acquisitions with their Customer Bases, Distribution Channels and Technology are the base for our organic growth strategy and provide opportunities to cross sell our platforms and New Media Technology products and services Domestically and Internationally.

We are based in San Diego, California and operate as a technology-based company with divisions providing telecommunications, medical technology and product distribution, media content for domestic and international syndication as well as technology solutions. We operate as a Media Content Hub for Domestic and International syndication, Technology/Telecommunications company using on our own proprietary Global Digital Social Media and Mobile TV and Telecommunications infrastructure platform and we also provide technology solutions to businesses worldwide. We offer Software as a Service (SaaS), Technology Platform as a Service (PAAS),

Cloud-based Unified Communication as a Service (UCaaS) and carrier-grade performance and support for businesses over our private IP MPLS fiber and wireless network in the United States. Our cloud-based UCaaS services allow businesses of any size to enjoy all the latest voice, data, media and collaboration features in today's global technology markets. We also operate as a Master Distributor for Nationwide Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) and Independent Sales Organization (ISO) as a Master Distributor for Pre-Paid Cellphone services, Mobile phones, Cellphone Accessories and Global Roaming Cellphones.

Our technologies “Gathers Big Data” to predict our customers’ viewing and spending habits. We then deliver Products and Services to support that estimated demand and share advertising revenues with our Content, Digital Media and Linear Broadcast Partners worldwide.

Each of our four divisions contributes to the launch of our global Content delivery platform “VuMe” formerly known as “ViewMe Live” and creates cross pollinating revenue opportunities and a closed Global E-commerce Eco environment which we believe will help us execute our short- and long-term corporate objectives. Our Content Division TPT Media and Entertainment LLC which consists of Blue Collar Productions (our TV and Film content Production company) creates original content and in some cases third party content. Once Content has been produced, we will then broadcast and deliver that content over our proprietary VuMe Mobile TV and Social media Platform domestically and internationally.

Our corporate goal is to work within our four in house divisions (Smartphone, Network, Content and SaaS) to launch hardware abs software sales and build a viewer subscriber base domestically and internationally. This edge device deployment would deliver free Content, free Linear Broadcast feeds and Social Media features on our Free proprietary VuMe Mobile app platform which includes in app users subscription models with the anticipation to aggregate and showcase our original and third-party Content, Digital Media and Linear broadcast feeds from and too the four corners of the Globe.

We have generated revenues in 2023, 2022 and 2021, primarily through operating as a Broadband Internet provider. The Company can also operate its approximate 58 miles Fiber optic ring throughout the greater Phoenix valley offering such services as Basic Residential Phone service, Basic Business phone service, POT’s lines, Basic Fiber Broadband Internet services, Wireless Internet Services, Toll Free 800 services, EFax, Erate, Dedicated T-1 Services, Auto Attendant, SIP Trunks, Mobile and VoIP services. These offerings will continue for the foreseeable future weighted heavily towards offering more Wireless Internet services and the Fiber Ring will be transformed into a Private Test facility to be offered for rent to businesses needing a private network to test new products for proof of concept purposes. Since the acquisition of the assets of SpeedConnect in 2019, we operate as a Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) provider and are considered one of the nation’s largest rural wireless broadband Internet providers serving approximately 2,000 residential and commercial wireless broadband Internet customers, in Arizona, Idaho, Michigan, Montana, and Texas.

We, and our related acquired companies are seeking to be an innovative Media-Telecom/CUBS (Cloud Unified Businesses Services) company and one of the first to combine recurring Telecom, Media and Data/Cloud Services revenue under one roof, then bring all relevant data from those services into a proprietary telecom infrastructure and information matrix platform capable of delivering a “Daily and Intelligent Dashboard” to our Domestic and International customers. Such a planned cohesive combination of services and information from a single provider has been heretofore nonexistent. We intend to pioneer an integrate communication services and information technology suites to empower individuals and companies with vital communications, Smartphone, Network, Content, SaaS (Software as A Service), New Media Technology products and services, and valuable relevant diagnostic information both Domestically and Internationally.

We are currently able to deliver a live Global Mobile TV Broadcast and Social Media Platform utilizing a Mobile App technology on our proprietary Content Delivery Network “VuMe”. We plan to expand our Cloud Unified Business Services (CUBS) technology-based business services unifying multiple services from the cloud including applications developed for our medical division.

CUBS (Cloud Unified Business Services) - We are a CUBS provider, acquiring customers and then cross selling additional products and services through our proprietary Wrap Around Relationship Marketing (WARM) system, intending to make the customers very sticky – prone to not leave as a customer.

Planned Activities

Big Data & Predictive Analytics - Our capability to utilize our proprietary aggregation platform to gather data from our hardware and software edge device (End Users) deployments positions the Company to be a leader in predictive analytics.

tptw_10kimg11.jpg

Cross-Sales – Our growth strategy through complimentary acquisitions may create opportunities to cross and sell its New Generation, New Media technology products and services to a growing customer base across multiple distribution channels, both domestically and internationally.

Market Launch - Through our acquisition of VuMe from Matrixsites, we have acquired the live backend broadcast Network technology for our Global Mobile TV and Social Media platform. Subject to raising capital of ($500,000 to $5,000,000) from our fund-raising activities, we believe we are within 60 to 90 days of launching our “VuMe” Mobile APP delivery platform.

Liquidity and Capital Resource Needs

We anticipate needing an estimated $50,000,000 in capital to continue our business operations and expansion. We do not have committed sources for these additional funds and will need to be obtained through debt or equity placements or a combination of those.

Estimate of Liquidity and Capital Resource Needs

Although the items set forth above indicate management’s present estimate of our liquidity and capital resource needs, we may reallocate the proceeds or utilize them for other corporate purposes. Our actual use proceeds may vary from these estimates because of a number of factors, including whether we are successful in completing future acquisitions, whether we obtain additional funding, what other obligations have been incurred by us, the operating results of our initial acquisition activities, and whether we are able to operate profitably. If our need for working capital increases, we may seek additional funds through loans or other financing. There are no current commitments for any such financing opportunity, and there can be no assurance that these funds may be obtained in the future if the need arises.

RECENT ACQUISITIONS/FORMATIONS OF OPERATING DIVISIONS/SUBSIDIARIES

Acquisitions – Potential and Terminated

Geokall UK Ltd. Acquisition and Purchase Agreement

On October 31, 2023, as amended on April 9, 2024, the Company entered into an Acquisition and Purchase Agreement with Geokall UK Ltd. (“Geokall”), a UK Limited Company, and its owners (“Sellers”) (altogether, the “Parties”) for all of the assets, liabilities, intellectual property, and technology of Geokall in exchange for 200,000 shares of TPT restricted Series F Convertible Preferred Stock with a stated price of $5.00 USD per share with the Designation of Rights and Privileges similar to TPT’s Series E Preferred Shares, but which Series F Preferred Shares designation has not yet been submitted or approved by the Secretary of State of Florida, and cannot be assured. In addition, TPT agrees that upon a successful fund-raising event, TPT will provide Geokall with working capital in the amount up to $500,000. An audit based on SEC Standards of Geokall UK Ltd financial statements, including footnotes, must be obtained and the Parties agree that the purchase price may be subject to change based on the results of the audit. The closing may occur prior to the audit being completed if Parties agree.

Other Terminated Acquisitions

The Company had pending agreements to acquire, and had disclosed in prior filings, Broadband Infrastructure Inc. and Tekmovil Holdings LLC. Both of these intended acquisitions have terminated by mutual agreement, or have gone beyond their allowed closing date in accordance with the acquisitions in place.

Our Business Methods

Centralized Platform and New Generation Network

Upon the closing of our acquisition of GeoKall, we will be operating a next-generation broadband network reselling other companies’ networks on a wholesale arbitrage basis (buying and reselling other companies’ capacity).”Geokall ESim Platform”. We will be interconnected to U.S. and International carriers to date. Once funded, we intend to deploy our own in-country networks in the targeted emerging markets. This will enable us to be able to provide better quality termination and increase our operating margins. We believe our platform will produce substantial operational cost savings. Because of our pricing advantage, we will be able to offer our clients products and services at an attractive pricing structure, creating a strong competitive advantage. We believe that based on our intended low network operating costs and low-cost infrastructure, we will be able to penetrate emerging markets with little network build-out and at a reasonable price. We believe that our service offerings will be well received in emerging markets based on existing relationships and pricing structure, which will enable us to set the industry standard with little competition.

Once we establish in-country networks, we will be able to market Phones, Networks, Content and SaaS products targeted to specific subgroups that coincide with the country/region where we have a network in place or a strategic partnership network in place.

Use of Incumbent Networks

Under formal agreements we can privately brand and resell incumbent carriers’ underlying broadband networks, while deploying our own Wimax/Wi-Fi/GSM service plans and mobile handsets.

As a true value add, our Geokall ESim platform allows us to manage the billing and routing, offering our customers a seamless, branded network from anywhere we maintain a relationship. By way of incumbent operator networks, we can sell and market to retail and wholesale customers without the high infrastructure costs associated with deploying our own network. If and when the revenues justify the cost of constructing our own network, we plan to investigate adding a wireless Broadband/ GSM network and transfer our customer base in a final step to reduce costs of goods sold long-term.

Wholesale Termination

Wholesale termination is the reselling of excess network capacity on a reciprocal basis to other telecom carriers both domestically and internationally. Due to the large number of carrier relationships we have in the US and abroad, we believe we can immediately increase our wholesale termination in each country in which we have a license to operate. This wholesale activity generates additional cash flow immediately if successfully implemented. Wholesale termination is a low risk, low margin business.

Service Description

Our next-generation wireless Broadband/GSM network relies on non-line-of-sight technology. This will provide a level of performance comparable to that delivered by evolving Worldwide Interoperability of Microwave Access (WiMAX) standards. The cost advantage equates to substantial reductions of fixed costs as compared to building traditional, legacy, and switched networks.

Our products and marketing strategy unifies the various features available in today’s telecommunication environment including:

Our Business Segments

Our business segment consists generally of providing strategic, legacy and data integration products and services to small, medium and enterprise business, wholesale and governmental customers, including other communication providers. Our strategic products and services offered to these customers include our collocation, hosting, broadband, VoIP, information technology and other ancillary services. Our services offered to these customers primarily include local and long-distance voice, inducing the sale of unbundled network elements (“UNEs”), switched access and other ancillary services. Our product offerings include the sale of telecommunications equipment located on customers’ premises and related products and professional services, all of which are described further below.

Our products and services include local and long-distance voice, broadband, Ethernet, collocation, hosting (including cloud hosting and managed hosting), data integration, video, network, public access, VoIP, information technology and other ancillary services.

We offer our customers the ability to bundle together several products and services. For example, we offer integrated and unlimited local and long-distance voice services. Our customers can also bundle two or more services such as broadband, video (including through our strategic partnerships), voice services. We believe our customers value the convenience and price discounts associated with receiving multiple services through a single company.

Most of our products and services are provided using our telecommunications network, which consists of voice and data switches, copper cables, fiber-optic cables and other equipment.

Described in greater detail below are our key products and services are as follows:
