US-based Freedompop has consolidated its position as the leading MVNO in Mexico, according to the official figures for 2018 released by telecommunications regulator IFT. Mexico had a total of 14 active MVNOs accounting for 1.7 million active SIMs at the end of 2018, having grown by  a total of 202,000 lines during the course of the year. Freedompop topped the ranking with 32 percent of MVNO lines at the end of December thanks above all to the success of its free plan with 50 minutes of calls, 50 SMS, 50 MB of data and 50 MB for social networks.
