The New Era in Smartphone Technology is Here.

AdvanceTC Ltd. Answers the Call in the $6.2 Billion Mobile Satellite Services Market.(1)

September 29, 2021
Satellite Communication Market Expanding Rapidly

When you think things can’t change any faster…they do.

Then we wonder, “Why didn’t they think of this before?”

Well it’s happening again.

Our smartphones are about to get a huge upgrade. And demand should be off the hook.

The crazy thing is that big cell phone manufacturers might get left in the dust.

AdvanceTC Ltd. (US:ATCLF) changed the game. And they have the patent to prove it. (2)

Plus their new device is U.S. FCC approved. (2)

Satellites, Satellites Everywhere.

As the world moves away from localized communication services to off-the-planet satellite communications – the rush to space is intense. (3)

Who will ultimately control the communications grid?

Two of the biggest players are billionaire legends of our generation, Jeff Bezos, and his Kuiper Systems versus Elon Musk’s StarLink.(4)

Or could it be China, Brazil, or Russia. Who?

Regardless, the goal, according to Elon Musk, is to sell internet connections to almost anyone on the planet by way of a growing network of private satellites orbiting overhead.(5)

Question: How will your current smartphone connect without satellite capabilities?

Hang on a sec…it won’t.

That’s what makes AdvanceTC so darn compelling.

They developed the world’s first android smartphone with satellite messaging and emergency service. (2)

Offer the public 100% global coverage and this new technology could “change the world.”

Who is AdvanceTC US OTC: (ATCLF)?

Founded in 2005, AdvanceTC was reported as a $3.015 billion company as recently as May, 2021, (9) that designs, develops, and commercializes advanced mobile wireless computing and telecommunication devices.

Their flagship products are AdvanceTC W3, a full Windows®️ OS microcomputer integrated with cellular telephony capabilities, and XPLORE X7. The company developed the world’s first android smartphone with satellite messaging and emergency service.

The devices are fully designed and developed using the company’s patented and innovative proprietary technology.

They are mainly focused on developing Intellectual Property through proprietary hardware/software design and system integration. Product prototyping and manufacturing are outsourced to appointed manufacturers.

They are a public company traded on the US OTC markets under the symbol ATCLF. AdvanceTC has offices in Malaysia, Australia, France, and New York City, USA.

How Does This Game-Changing Technology Work?

Let’s look at the XPLORE X7. It features a dual SIM and works just like a normal smartphone with 4G and coming 5G capabilities and WiFi. But it has what others don’t, a satellite network option that can log your location for ultimate safety.

The phone also comes with the company’s StarzChat app which can rival WeChat and What’s App.

Users can log emergency contacts in the app. Plus, the XPLORE X7 has a red emergency button that will alert your contacts and emergency services of your location – anywhere in the world.

It can even send a message through to a non- StarzChat user. They will receive it as an SMS.

In all, the phone merges multiple channels and methods of communication, or multimode-communication.

AdvanceTC US OTC: (ATCLF) Can Move Fast and Move Big

ATCLF is still fairly new on the publicly traded scene, but has displayed some interesting takes. For example on September 9, 2021, it hit a low of $0.0610 and just 4 short days later hit a high of $0.2930 for an eye-popping 380.33% move. (7)

To be fair, it is very, very early in the game for ATCLF. As the company continues to innovate services that are relevant to their market along with increased product inventory, it makes sense that their market share could be destined to increase as well.

And let’s not ignore the fact that for May of 2021, Roma Appraisals Limited valued AdvanceTC at an astounding $3.015 billion! (9)

Of The 5.27 Billion Mobile Users Worldwide – How Many Don’t Want 100% Seamless Connectivity?

The faster technology pushes forward, the faster we tend to forget a cellphone used to be a luxury. Now, almost everyone has one.(14)

  • According to the latest data from GSMA Intelligence, there are 5.27 billion unique mobile phone users in the world.
  • The total number of unique mobile users around the world grew by 117 million in the past 12 months.
  • Unique mobile users are currently growing at a rate of 2.3 percent per year.(14)

Users Cannot Take For Granted They Will Always Have Connectivity

Those who live in the Southwest United States or in rural areas, know mobile service can be spotty or non-existent. (15) For example a drive through the state of Utah or Nevada will prove this true as shown in the map below:

Everyone Wants to Stay Connected!

Here is a pretty large segment of the population that treads where mobile providers don’t – campers.

Camping has significantly increased in popularity, with figures showing 1.4 million households camped for the first time in 2018.(17) Even further(17):

  • 77 million households in the U.S. contain someone who camps.
  • 1 million families in Canada like to camp.
  • 56% of campers are Millennials.
  • Over the last couple of years, 40 million people took RV trips.(17)

Do you think anyone wants to get stranded in the open with no phone service? Can you see how this tech is poised to potentially catch fire?

Mobile Satellite Phone Subscribers are Exploding in the U.S.

Perhaps that’s why satellite phone giant Iridium’s commercial IoT data subscribers grew 20% from the year-ago period to an astounding 962,000 customers.(11)

Iridium operates the Iridium satellite constellation, a system of 66 active satellites used for worldwide voice and data communication from hand-held satellite phones and other transceiver units.(11)

Right now, mobile satellite phones are primarily used in the defense sector as they are the only means of communication in emergency situations, when all other means of communications become inaccessible.(16)

AdvanceTC US OTC: (ATCLF) Looks to Bridge the Connectivity Gap with Seamless Integration at an Affordable Cost

Like dial-up modems, the dreaded “no service” or no bars, is about to be a thing of the past.

According to CEO and Founder Loi Cheng Pheng, “The goal is to gain mass adoption of our technology in a 2–3-year period.”(10)

How Do They Plan to Do This?

Their primary target is through major carriers with a mix of direct-to-consumer marketing.

For example, XOX one of Malaysia’s largest cell phone providers(18) recently partnered with AdvanceTC. (13) The goal was to provide a unified network plan by integrating XOX’s prepaid plans and messaging platform with AdvanceTC’s extensive satellite emergency services. This gives customers the ability to activate a satellite service as needed, be it for leisure in remote areas, work purposes, day-to-day contact, or emergencies.(13)

Right now the company’s gross profit margin (GPM) is a healthy 20-25%. According to Mr. Lio, they are on track to reach 45-55% GPM in 2022. (10)

The company has 2 new technology projects on the horizon. (10)

Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) offers(18):

  • Improved voice quality
  • Improved functionality (such as Location information)
  • Improved security (i.e. Authentication and Encryption)
  • Improved channel efficiency (2 slot TDMA)

Home Security Technology

Featuring state-of-the-art drone products controlled by Satellite sensor enabled Android Satellite Smartphone or device. (20)
