America Movil hit with USD 70 million Telnor fine

Tuesday 28 January 2020 | 10:31 CET | News
Mexican telecommunications regulator IFT has fined America Movil's fixed-line unit Telefonos del Noroeste (Telnor) a total of MXN 1.31 billion (around USD 70 million) for breaching the requirement to share information about the availability of its passive infrastructure, such as posts and ducts, with rivals via the electronic management system SEG. In a statement, the watchdog said Telnor had failed to share the information as of September 2017 and it was therefore imposing a fine amounting to 6 percent of the operator's revenues.
