Mexican mobile broadband lines top 82 mln

Monday 18 June 2018 | 11:01 CET | News
Mexico had 82.2 million mobile broadband lines at the end of 2017, the figure having increased at an average rate of nearly 80 percent a year from 1.4 million connections in June 2010, according to a report from the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT). Mobile broadband penetration has surged from 1 percent of the population in 2010 to 66 percent at the end of December, said the report, which attributes the rise to an increasingly competitive market prompted above all by the country's 2013 telecom reform.
