Being considered as one of the most dynamic markets in Mexico, the mobile phone market becomes a really interesting market to analyze. The objective of the work is to find the factors that allowed the creation of a monopolistic competence market, being Telcel the leader in such monopoly, as well as the strategies that have been in power of the latest. I suggest a game, based on both economic and business theory, who may predict the outcomes of such strategies. It is concluded that Telcel´s rival firms now have with them both resources and capabilities to lower this monopoly even more.
