Mexican Fixed-Line Telecom Sector Retains Significant Potential, States BuddeComm in Its Topical Report Available at MarketPublishers.com20 Oct 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – With a population of close to 122 million and a fixed-line teledensity of nearly 18%, Mexico’s fixed-line telecommunication sector continues to show considerable growth potential. Telefonos de Mexico (Telmex) still takes the lead in the market, retaining about two thirds of subscribers, whilst the country’s wireless telecom provider Telcel dominates the mobile marketplace, both being subsidiaries of América Móvil.
Telmex’s supremacy warrants additional regulation in specific sectors. A telecommunications reform law approved in mid-2013 set up a novel regulator and has since enforced measures targeted to eliminating barriers to foreign direct investment and at dicreasing the market share of the leading operators. These reforms are expected to go a good way to boost the competitiveness of the Mexican telecom marketplace.
The broadband sector sees high growth in the total telecoms market. Though it suffers from a dearth of competition, with Telmex still grabbing the lion’s portion of subscribers, reform measures are targeted to decreasing this to below 50%. The pay TV market is also characterised by high concentration, with Grupo Televisa dominating the cable TV and satellite TV sectors, where it is a leading shareholder in Sky Mexico.
The mobile market keeps on undergo huge changes amid efforts to curb the market leadership of Telcel. AT&T Mexico currently accounts for a share of 12% of the market whilst the nascent MVNO sector is making headway at a slow pace.
