Growth in the Mexican mobile market has begun to slow in response to higher penetration. Telcel still dominates the market, accounting for about 70% of subscribers. The regulator has endeavoured to encourage competition since 2010, and legislation passed in late 2013 aims to reduce the dominance of Telcel in the mobile market and of Telmex in the fixed-line segment.

Following the 3G spectrum auctions held in 2010, operators such as Movistar and Nextel have become better positioned to offer mobile data services. This report provides an overview of Mexico's mobile market, including a range statistical data as well as subscriber forecasts to 2016.

State-owned mobile network; small rural town of Villa Talea de Castro creates an independent mobile network; AT&T to acquire Grupo Iusacell for $2.5 billion; Telcel reports fall in its subscriber base as it plans to reduce market share to below 50%; Virgin Mobile Latin America launches services on Movistar's network; mobile penetration approaches 92%; spectrum auctions in the 1.9GHz and 1.7GHz bands completed; regulator obliges Telcel to reduce MTRs; regulator takes control of 2.5GHz spectrum, reassigns it for 4G; Banorte launches MiFon mobile banking service; América Móvil develops m-payment platform with banks; operators sign up to data roaming transparency scheme; regulator considers auctioning blocks of 15MHz in the 700MHz band; regulator's market data updates to June 2014; telcos' financial and operating data to Q4 2014; recent market developments.
