Mexican MVNOs up to 1.3% of market in 2017 - study

Monday 28 May 2018 | 10:50 CET | News
Mexico had a total of 14 active MVNOs at the end of 2017 but they have yet to show they are capable of disrupting the dominance of the country's three leading operators, according to a report by The Competitive Intelligence Unit (CIU). The 14 MVNOs accounted for 1.48 million active MVNO SIMs at the end of 2017, or 1.3 percent of the market, up 68.7 percent compared to the 880,273 lines registered at the end of 2016. However, the report adds that, in spite of the higher customer numbers, the MVNOs accounted for just 0.3 percent of total market revenues in the final quarter of 2017.
