image of OECD Telecommunication and Broadcasting Review of Mexico 2017

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.

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.
