Mexico: Regulator plans to vote on America Movil, Televisa rules soon

 |  February 28, 2017

Mexico’s telecommunications regulator IFT on Monday plans to discuss and vote on the antitrust rules in place against Carlos Slim’s America Movil and broadcaster Grupo Televisa, three people familiar with the matter said.

The measures were part of a sweeping sector reform pushed by President Enrique Pena Nieto’s government to reign in the country’s telecoms and broadcasting oligopolies.
