Telecom reforms in Mexico fail expectations – report

Friday 13 June 2014 | 21:38 CET | News
Experts and analysts agree that a year after the reform of the telecommunications sector, the expectations of the industry and users have not been met, reports El Financiero. Investments in the sector remain stagnant and regulations have not been reflected in lower prices and better services for consumers. The absence of secondary legislation in 2013 led to investments in the sector dropping by 17 percent and the expectation for 2014 is that they will remain stagnant at around USD 35 billion, according to analysts at IDC Mexico.
