MVNOs to reach 2% of Mexican market by end-2016

Thursday 25 August 2016 | 10:01 CET | News
MVNOs are set to reach a 2 percent share of the Mexican market by the end of the year, reports local business daily El Financiero, citing the director of Telefonica Mexico's wholesale business, Boris Velandia. The figure is equivalent to around 2.1 million customers, said Velandia, adding that MVNOs will account for around 5 percent of the mobile market by 2020 if they continue growing at their current rate. Telefonica last week announced that Simpati Mobile, an operator targeting working Mexican women, was the eighth MVNO to launch on its Movistar network.
