Archived report – this report was archived 28 June 2011 and has not been updated. Mexico’s growth in fixed lines had been steadily declining over the last decade, from 13% in 2000 to zero growth in 2009. Thus fixed-line teledensity was stagnating at approximately 18.5%. In addition, there remained significant disparities in fixed-line penetration between urban and rural areas. Telmex still dominated the fixed-line market with around 85% of lines and investment and competition remained stifled by the fact that Mexico is the last country in the OECD yet to unbundle its local loop.

In addition, VoIP was rapidly gaining popularity although its growth still remained constrained by relatively low broadband penetration. Regulatory reform may have been on the horizon, with the regulator recently ruling Telmex to have market dominance thus opening the way for potentially tougher company-specific regulations. This report provided brief profiles of the main fixed-network operators, together with statistical data, subscriber forecasts and an overview of Mexico’s telecom infrastructure.
