Mexico - Key Statistics, Telecom Market and Regulatory Overview

Synopsis

Archived report: This report was archived 28 June 2011 and has not been updated. Mexico is the last OECD country yet to implement local loop unbundling. Basic telephony was still practically a monopoly held by Teléfonos de Mexico (Telmex). Telmex’s sister company, América Móvil, also dominates the mobile phone sector through its Mexican unit Telcel, although spectrum auctions planned for mid-2010 may have ushered new entry into the mobile market. Calls for increased competition in the industry continued to mount. Signs of strengthening regulation were emerging in the form of determinations by the competition agency, the CFC, that Telmex was a dominant player in the fixed line sector and Telcel a dominant player in the mobile sector. These decisions paved the way for Cofetel to impose stricter regulations on the conglomerate. In addition, in early 2010 the Calderon government reiterated its intention to strengthen laws and regulatory institutions in Mexico in the interests of greater competition. This report provided an overview of Mexico’s telecommunications market and regulatory environment, accompanied by relevant statistical data.
