Telefonica Mexico has announced its intention to increase the price of its Movistar-branded postpay plans by 6 percent due to inflation and the devaluation of the peso against the US dollar. In exchange, the company said it will be offering zero-rated access to the most popular social networking and messaging apps, including Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram and Snapchat. Unlimited social networking was already available with most of the operator's prepay plans.
