America Movil rules out connecting to Red Compartida

Thursday 15 February 2018 | 11:27 CET | News
America Movil has no intention of connecting to Mexico's wholesale 4G shared network (Red Compartida) because its needs are already covered by its own infrastructure, said the group's CEO Daniel Hajj Aboumrad, according to El Economista. The Altan Redes consortium was awarded the 20-year concession to build and run the network last year and is on course to reach its initial coverage target of 30 percent of the country's population by the end of next month. "It will be a new competitor, but I do not think we will be using Altan's networks. We already have good coverage and a good network,"
