Broadband is one of the highest growth sectors in Mexico’s telecoms market. Nevertheless, it suffers from a lack of competition to the dominant player Telmex, which still accounts for the lion’s share of subscribers. The main cable TV providers, Megacable, Cablemás and Cablevisión, have begun to broaden their bundled services offerings including cable TV, broadband and telephony, and as a result their broadband subscriber base has grown steadily in recent years. Nevertheless, there is significant scope for further market development given that the country’s broadband penetration is less than half of the OECD average and consumer prices are among the highest in the OECD. This report provides an overview of Mexico’s broadband and internet market, accompanied by relevant statistical data and subscriber forecasts to 2020.
