Mexico: Telecom Reform Promotes Competition as America Movil, Televisa Battle for Leadership
Jun 4, 2013
BOSTON, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new telecommunications law in Mexico passed almost unanimously at the end of April, paving the way for fundamental reforms and creating a wide range of opportunities for operators to invest and grow, according to a new report from Pyramid Research (www.pyr.com).
Mexico: Telecom Reform Promotes Operator Competition as America Movil, Televisa Battle for Leadership offers a precise profile of the country's telecommunications, media and technology sectors based on proprietary data from Pyramid's research in the market. It provides a detailed competitive analysis of both the fixed and mobile sectors, tracks the market shares of technologies and services and monitors the introduction and spread of new technologies.
"Penetration rates for most services are below where Mexico's GDP levels suggest they should be," says Jose Manuel Mercado, Senior Analyst at Pyramid Research. "In no sector is this more evident than the mobile sector, where penetration rates at year-end 2012 were roughly 30 percentage points below the regional average," he explains. The competitive structure of the market is largely to blame for this situation, as the market has proven difficult for challengers from a profitability perspective. New regulations included in the telecommunications law recently approved by the two houses of the Congreso seek to address this situation by creating an environment that would promote competition and, by extension, give investors more financial flexibility to sustain a business, according to the report.
