Mr. Safie is the Honorary Consul of Cyprus in El Salvador.

Mr. Safie and his family own over 12 companies in El Salvador with well over 1000 employees, most relevant to mention: Rayones de El Salvador, a textile company producing natural and synthetic fiber, Seguros del Pacifico, an insurance company (leader in bonds), Megavision Group, which has 6 television channels (15, 19, 21, 61, 63, 65), 2 national radio stations (97.3 FM and 107.7 FM), and 6 local radio stations, Sheraton Hotel Presidente, BOSH Investments a real estate development company, FERSA a manufacturer of ribbons for shoes and elastic bands and SALNET Telecommunications. Mr. Safie is currently developing a $75 million real estate project which will offer office space and a shopping mall in the city of San Salvador.  

"Executing this deal with Mr. Safie, such a prevalent figure in Central America, positions TPT Global Tech, NOTCA and SALNET to be the first to bring 5G Technology to Latin America. At the same time, validates our business model and demonstrates how our multiple technology sectors vertically integrate to help our technology partners, domestically and internationally, compete in any market across the globe," said Stephen J. Thomas III, CEO of TPT Global Tech.

"I have known and done business with Stephen since 2000 when he and his US Company were the first to bring new VOIP convergent technology to Central America. I am very pleased and excited to partner with Stephen again 18 years later to be the first to bring a new 5G convergent technology to Central America. Our SALNET team is looking forward to working with the TPT Global Tech and NOTCA teams to launch this new 5G technology platform in El Salvador," said Antonio Safie, owner of SALNET.
