Debate on the regulatory measures imposed by the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) to America Movil (Telcel), after ordering it as a preponderant economic agent has erupted in recent weeks.
While asymmetric regulation would seek to level the distribution and competition in a market where Telcel turns out to be the mobile operator, owner of more than 61% of the user base, several specialists agree that this process would take years by faults in the model of the IFT.
At the same time, experts of the firm The Competitive Intelligence Unit (The CIU) estimate that after the implementation of these changes actually America Movil do not suffer major changes and only lost 6% of their subscriber base.
Ernesto Piedras, director of The CIU, in an interview with the newspaper El Economista, delves on the factors that ultimately would reflect a minimum impact on the operations of America Movil:
The incentives of the preponderant economic agent (AEP) have not been sufficient to allow new MVNO entry and expansion of existing ones.
Delaying strategies by the AEP (América Móvil) are inferred to make available the tools they need third party to access your access network effectively.
Stones says that own dealers expressed prevailing agent has hampered access to their infrastructure. At the same time that The CIU concludes that the measures developed by the IFT in reality have proved insufficient to be effective.
América Móvil goes through difficult times, but apparently could be worse, and at the end of all the operator will not be so affected.
