The next STRP in play now (read)

HMMR hitting radars on Go Long Wireless partnership...could run like STRP

Possible Acquisition Target

The Company's ability to now reach into 49 states, both urban and rural, could position Hammer Fiber as a potential acquisition target for last mile delivery for some of the bigger players in the space, like Google Fiber (NASDAQ:GOOGL) or AT&T AirGig (NYSE:T).

Case in point, take a look at what happened to Straight Path Communications, Inc. (NYSEMKT:STRP), an owner of much sought after bandwidth spectrum. STRP held a large inventory of 28 GHz and 39 GHz millimeter wave spectrum used in mobile communications that would give a new owner an advantage in 5G development. Well this set off a bidding war between Verizon (NYSE:VZ) and AT&T that sent Straight Path stock from around $35 a share to high of $230 in just one month.

Verizon and AT&T were seeking to gain an edge in the race to develop out a fifth-generation network (5G) that would offer faster downloads and boost internet-reliant products such as self-driving cars.

Verizon won out the bidding war announcing in May 2017 that they would acquire Straight Path for $184 a share in an all-stock transaction, reflecting an enterprise value of approximately $3.1 billion.

Now some speculate that with the combination of Hammer Fiber unique 'wireless fiber' technology, and Go Long Wireless 12 GHz Multichannel Video Distribution and Data Service (MVDDS) spectrum in 49 states, that this new partnership may trigger off a potential bidding fight over Hammer Fiber like we saw in STRP back in the spring of 2017.

Hammer Fiber was last traded at around $35 per share under the ticker symbol "HMMR".
