Well...the main fact is true however the last sentence isn't: Hot Telecom and Partner do not "work on mobile roaming" and they wouldn't need this acquisition to "achieve a nationwide mobile network". Back in 2015 the two companies established PHI Networks, an independent shared-RAN company (owned 50:50) which works in MOCN model and provides nation-wide service coverage to both Hot Mobile and Partner.
