America Movil said its subsidiary Telmex has already had its concession to provide telecommunications services in Mexico renewed until 2056. "In December 2016, the IFT issued a resolution granting Telmex a 30-year extension to the term of the concessions, which will become effective in 2026," said America Movil. The communications giant issued its statement in response to comments from Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador that the government would be reviewing the concession in 2023.
