IFT orders America Movil units to amend wholesale proposals

Friday 23 September 2016 | 10:37 CET | News
Mexico's telecom regulator IFT has ordered America Movil's Telmex, Telnor and Telcel units to amend the terms and conditions of their respective wholesale interconnection proposals for 2017. America Movil, which controls about 70 percent of Mexico's mobile phone lines, was declared a dominant player in the sector in 2014, leading to a series of stricter rules, including the need to obtain the IFT's approval for its wholesale prices. Telmex and Telnor have also been ordered to amend their unbundling terms and conditions for rival operators with a view to increasing competition in the sector.
