New Fixed Networks research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research
[ClickPress, Thu Jun 16 2016] Mexico's telecoms market has been steadily increasing its attractiveness to investors, thanks partly to regulatory efforts to increase the competitiveness of the sector. In January 2016 , regulator IFETEL formally awarded Telecomm a 30-year concession to operate a nationwide wholesale telecommunications network. Recent regulatory moves have aimed to weaken the dominance of incumbent telco America Movil. The arrival of AT&T in the market and its subsequent launch of LTE services in October 2015 promises to create a more competitive and d ynamic market. One of the main areas of wireless competition will be LTE services, while in the wireline sector, convergence will be a core driver, especially if America Movil convinces th e regulator to let it offer pay TV. Unbundling the incumbent's network should help to generate further competition for broadband services.

We have revised our forecasts for Mexico's mobile subscriber base, in order to take account of Q415 figures reported by the leading operators. We estimate that Mexico had 110.2mn mobile subscriptions at the end of 2015, representing a mobile subscriber penetration rate of 86.7%. We expect this to increase to almost 90% by the end of 2016 and more than 93% by the end of our forecast in 2020.
We have also updated our forecasts for Mexico's fixed-line and broadband subscriber markets, incorporating Q315 data from regulator Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones (IFETEL). We estimate that Mexico had 21.2mn fixed lines in service at the end of 2015 (16.7% penetration), up by 5.0% on the 2014 figure. We now predict that Mexico will have more than 24.7mn broadband subscribers by the end of 2020. This will equate to a penetration rate of 18.3%, up from 12.6% at the end of 2015.
In January 2016, IFETEL formally awarded Telecomunicaciones de Mexico (Telecomm) a 30-year concession to operate a nationwide wholesale telecommunications network. Telecomm will combine its own ageing long-distance backbone with more advanced assets from utilities such as Comision Federal de Electricidad and invest heavily to modernise and expand the pooled infrastructure over which third-party providers can deliver own-brand services to end users.
