With a population of around 109 million and a fixed-line teledensity of around 17%, Mexico's telecom sector retains significant potential for growth over the next 5-10 years. The fixed-line market is still dominated by incumbent Telmex, with about 80% market share, while the mobile market is dominated by Telmex's sister company Telcel, both being owned by América Móvil. The regulator determined that Telmex's dominance warrants further regulation in certain sectors, and the company has been fined for obstructing interconnection to other operators. A telecom reform law passed in mid-2013 set up a new regulator and is aimed at removing barriers to foreign investment and reducing the market share of the dominant operators. These reforms will go far to making Mexico's telecom market more competitive. This report provides statistics on Mexico's fixed-line and digital TV markets, as well as an overview of regulatory developments.

Key Developments:
New telecom regulator formed; telecom reform legislation enacted; local loop unbundling awaits approval; local telephony costs remain the highest in OECD countries; Google TV launches; 25% growth in pay TV subscriptions and increased interest in triple-play services; government introduces legislative changes for the telecom sector; Telmex fined for failing to provide interconnection; Mexsat Bicentenario satellite launches; Cablemás and América Móvil launch VoD services; regulator approves interconnection cost model to 2014; América Móvil makes moves to reduce market dominance; regulator's market data report for 2013; telcos' financial and operating data to Q2 2014; market developments into 2014.
