Effective competence: mechanism for promoting inversions

Systematically, the evidence points out that the Economic Agent Preponderant in Telecommunications (AEP-T, America Mobile) has enough incentives to invest in the infrastructure needed to increase accessibility, much more so we need to know.

The intensification of our connectivity demands this dynamism that is so observable in competing operators in the sector.

A court case reveals the deficit of infrastructure to endow access to services for all the population, resulting from the subordination and recourse of appeals by the AEP-T, in the last decade, but most notably in the last lustro.

Inversions: preponderants. In the balance of inversions in telecommunications fijas, the proportion of the respondent with respect to the total decrease practically in the middle, up from 45.4% in the year 2014-2015, to only 23.6% in 2020. Thus, the competing operators will significantly increase from 58.4% in 2014 to 76.4% in 2020.

In the mobile market, the AEP-T inversion levels are also markedly marked. As of 2017, its contribution to capital formation declined from 47.9% in 2014-2016 to a 25.8% increase between 2017 and 2020, again, this is based on the premeditated wage.

AEP-T in an international perspective. To compare the proportion of entrants dedicated to the inversion in telecommunications in the Latin American markets in the presence of the American Movement, reveals a notoriety of its operation in Mexico, attributable to the unequivocally unequivocally reduced balance of duty .

Mexico is the country in which the AEP-T invests the least with respect to its entrants between the countries in which it has market share. In comparison with the rest of the country’s media in which it has operations (Brazil, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Ecuador, Peru, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, among others), Mexico registers a lower 7.0 percentage points, a medium of 9.6% between 2018-2020.

Uninvested promises. On various occasions, America Mobile has included its inversion compromises, comparing its previously announced amounts to those effectively made in the last few years.

Respectively, at a press conference in October 2019, we will announce investments of 40 mmp per year for the telecommunications sector, to be held during the AMLO presidential administration. However, in agreement with IFT information, between 2018 and 2020, the United States Moved only 75.5 mmp, which means only 25.2 mmp this year, representing 62.9% of that amount of monetary sirens. To persist this tendency, at the end of the sex has invested $ 88.9 mmp less than the promised.

Now, America Moves Revealing that it would compromise to initially invest $ 8 mmp ($ 400 million dollars representing 3.6% of its investment in recent investments by AT&T, for example!) In the development of additional optical fiber infrastructure, in this case Authorization to provide pay TV service. For now we know that this is not the case, but only in the case where the hub will be acquired, we will not allow the efforts dedicated to its competitors.

It advises that the best promotion policies for inversions and sectoral crime are the promotion of effective competences. of higher quality services, greater availability and lower prices for telecommunications consumers in Mexico.
