Mexico's supreme court will finally rule on whether the country's telecom regulator IFT may impose assymetric measures on broadcaster Grupo Televisa, reports El Economista. The watchdog's decision to declare that Televisa has substantial power in the pay-TV market and should be subject to stricter asymmetric rules has been challenged via a number of appeals from the broadcaster, which argued that the IFT's move is based on 3-year-old figures.
