The Mexican chamber of deputies has approved a bill amending the existing telecommunications law to extend the rights of the country's 20 million-plus mobile subscribers, reports local daily Milenio. Under the terms of the amended legislation, postpay subscribers will be able to accumulate unused call minutes, SMS and data bundles for use the following month. Operators will also be required to set clear maximum consumption limits to prevent subscribers paying additional fees and to immediately unlock smartphones when contracts terminate.
