Hide / Show Abstract

The OECD Review of Telecommunication Policy and Regulation in Mexico, released in 2012, provided a comprehensive examination of the sector at the time, highlighting potential areas for regulatory and policy reform. Since then, the Mexican telecommunication sector has experienced substantial progress both from a legal and regulatory perspective, but also with respect to current market dynamics. The changes derive, to an important extent, from the reform that has taken place in Mexico since 2013, which closely reflect the 2012 OECD recommendations.

This report assesses subsequent market developments in the telecommunication and broadcasting sectors in Mexico, evaluates the implementation of the 2012 OECD recommendations, and puts forward a number of recommendations for the future. It records the remarkable progress made in implementing policy and regulatory changes and identifies areas where more can be done to continue the momentum that has brought tangible benefits to the people of Mexico.

  • Preface

    Mexico’s telecommunication reform illustrates how better policies can lead to better lives. Since 2013, this unprecedented structural reform has allowed the Mexican authorities to introduce important changes to modernise the telecommunication and broadcasting sectors, challenging a highly concentrated status quo and moving into a more competitive future. The results have been remarkable and demonstrate what can be achieved with evidence-based policy making.

  • Foreword

    In 2012, the OECD published an OECD Review of Telecommunication Policy and Regulation in Mexico as a contribution to what would become a broad constitutional, legal and regulatory reform in the telecommunication sector in Mexico. In 2016, Mexico, through the Mexican Ministry of Transport and Communications (Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes, SCT) and the Federal Telecommunications Institute (Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones, IFT), invited the OECD to conduct an implementation review. The objectives of this review are threefold: 1) to assess the implementation of the reform against the 2012 OECD recommendations; 2) to evaluate the market developments in telecommunication and broadcasting after the reform; and 3) to provide a set of recommendations to build on the momentum.

    This chapter examines the main aspects of the constitutional and legal provisions by which the telecommunication and broadcasting reform was implemented in Mexico. It further discusses changes to the institutional framework and with respect to regulatory, governmental and judicial institutions.

  • Policy and regulation in telecommunication and broadcasting in Mexico

    This chapter examines the design of regulation and policies of the telecommunication and broadcasting sectors in Mexico, most of which have been introduced since the 2013 reform, based on the changes to the legal framework discussed in Chapter 3. It covers issues such as wholesale and retail regulation, digital inclusion strategies, competition aspects and enforcement as well as consumer protection and empowerment. It also reviews the second round of asymmetric measures imposed on the preponderant agents announced by the Federal Telecommunications Institute (Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones, IFT) in March 2017.
