Regulator to review America Movil's online video service

Wednesday 22 May 2013 | 09:25 CET | News
America Movil's online-video service in Mexico needs an urgent review to determine whether it violates the terms of its telephony license, Bloomberg reports, citing three commissioners of Mexico's telecom regulator Cofetel. Under the terms of its license, America Movil is banned from providing TV services, thus the matter should be examined soon, according to a letter signed by commissioners Gonzalo Martinez Pous, Jose Luis Peralta and Alexis Milo.
