Monday 13 October 2014 | 12:25 CET | News
Structural changes in Mexico's telecommunications market, coupled with the competitive pressure of MVNOs like Virgin Mobile and Maz Tiempo, have led operators Telcel and Movistar to reduce their tariffs by 3.8 percent, reports El Financiero. During the second half of September, mobile tariffs fell by between 3.5 percent and 4.1 percent, according to data from Inegi, and the average reduction has reached 3.8 percent since March this year. At the end of the first half of 2014, mobile telephony ARPU reached MXN 161, 3 percent less than the MXN 166 registered in the same period last year.
