Tuesday 13 June 2017 | 11:51 CET | News
Mexican mobile lines rose to 112.4 million at the end of the first quarter of 2017, up from 109.0 million a year earlier, according to a report by The Competitive Intelligence Unit (CIU). The growing availability of affordable plans and flat rate mobile broadband offers with data-free social network access has also resulted in a 69 percent year on year surge in mobile data consumption to an average of 528MB at the end of Q1. However, Mobile ARPU continued to decline, dipping 4.3 percent year on just under USD 7 per month, said the report.
