Market Report, "Mexico Telecommunications Report Q1 2015", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

A change in regulatory environment enforcing more market openness and competition marks a very positive change for the Mexican telecommunication market. Following the ratification of a new telecommunications law in July 2014, dominant broadband and telephony operator América Móvil and dominant broadcaster Televisa are forced to undertake measures to decrease their respective market shares. This will allow for new players to enter the Mexican telecoms market and will likely result in redistribution of market shares among the existing market participants and potentially lower prices for consumers as a result of increased competition. BMI believes that market structure will change significantly. Developing new networks will also become cheaper as infrastructure sharing deals are likely. As a result, BMI has upgraded its mobile subscription forecast. Due to a degree of uncertainty over the course of action dominant operators will take and the timescales, BMI believes that the changes will have a maximum impact on mobile subscriber growth in 2015.
