Executive summary

OECD countries have recognised the increasing role played by the telecommunications sector as a means of improving productivity and economic growth while enabling governments to improve provision of public services. Mexico, with the lowest GDP per capita in the OECD, a high inequality of income distribution, and a relatively high rural population, needs the socio-economic boost provided by greater access to more efficient communication services, in particular high speed broadband. The welfare loss attributed to the dysfunctional Mexican telecommunication sector is estimated at USD 129.2 billion (2005-2009) or 1.8% GDP per annum.
