Mexican watchdog to investigate Telmex for monopolistic practices

Wednesday 8 May 2019 | 09:49 CET | News
Mexico's telecommunications regulator IFT has launched an investigation into possible monopolistic practices in the wholesale services market of the local network of America Movil's Telmex unit. The probe will investigate "the probably commission of relative monopolistic practices that have or may have as their object or effect to unduly displace other economic actors, substantially impede their access, or to establish exclusive advantages in favour of one or more economic agents in the relevant market, or in a related market," said the IFT in the country's official gazette.
