Only 19 percent of Mexican mobile users consumed more than 3GB of data a month in 2019, according to a report from telecom regulator IFT. A total of 78 percent of mobile phone users accessed data in 2019, with the majority of those who had no access (31%) saying they were not interested or had no need for it. Of those who used mobile data, around 24 percent had a low mobile data consumption profile (up to 1GB), with 32 percent having a medium profile (between 1GB and 3GB), while 19 percent had a high profile (more than 3GB), said the watchdog.
