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.

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.
