Mexican broadcaster Televisa has begun offering mobile phone services to existing customers, reports Reuters, citing the CEO of its Izzi brand Salvi Folch. The company has rented space on the 'Red Compartida' wholesale 4.5G shared network for the venture and is already delivering services to existing customers of Izzi's cable and home internet packages at aggressive prices of around MXN 250 a month for a line with unlimited data, said Folch, adding that Televisa may consider expanding the service beyond its own clients in the future.
