From 2014 to 2017, Mexico’s fixed and mobile internet services rates had a reduction of 84%

Interconnection rates for mobile telephony decreased 84% in Mexico from 2014 to 2017, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) revealed.


The latest update of the agency’s figures indicates that the mobile termination or interconnection rates, which are those that operators charge each other to connect calls, decreased 42% on average in the OECD countries.

Mexico’s connectivity tariffs reduced by double this average by 84 percent, above countries such as Hungary and Ireland which registered a drop of 80 percent and of 73 percent respectively.

The comparison across the 35 member countries of the OECD shows the positions of each economy with respect to fixed and mobile internet services.


In addition, Mexico ranks as the second country with the highest growth in fixed internet penetration, with an increase of 6.9 percent from June 2016 to June 2017, while during the same period of three years it was ranked between the countries with the highest growth of connections through fibre optics.


The OECD highlighted as an advance the increase in subscriptions to high speed mobile internet services, which reached 93 million, which means an increase of 7.6 percent until June 2017.
