Telcel, AT&T top Mexico mobile portability ranking in Q1

Thursday 13 April 2017 | 11:28 CET | News
Telcel (America Movil) and AT&T topped Mexico's mobile number portings in the first three months of 2017, according to the latest figures from the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT). Telcel posted a positive net portability of 1.02 million in the first quarter, closely followed by AT&T with 966,557. However, Movistar (Telefonica) continued to shed customers, posting a negative portability figure of 706,493 in the first three months of the year. The country's MVNOs still account for barely 2 percent of the market, with Weex still not part of the porting process. Rival Virgin Mobile
