Telmex to Face Mandatory Wholesale Obligations
Though the precise details are unclear at the moment, Mexico's telecoms regulator will open wholesale access to the "last mile" of Telmex telephone networks to competitors, Reuters reports.
Mexico’s telecom regulator, the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT), had made clear its desire for such wholesale access in 2014.
At that time, IFT asked specifically for leased line access, access and passive infrastructure sharing in fixed networks, access and passive infrastructure sharing in mobile networks and mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) support.
Both Telefonos de Mexico (Telmex) and mobile market leader Telcel (Radiomovil Dipsa), both subsidiaries of America Movil, would be affected.
