Beyond Privatization. The second Wage of telecommunications reforms in Mexico


  • Wellenius, B.
  • Staple, G.


From 1989 to 1994 the government of Mexico carried out a major restructuring of the telecommunications sector. Telefonos Mexico was privatized, and cellur, value-added and private networks and services were liberalized. In late 1994 the government moved toward further opening up the market, this time liberalizing local, long-distance, and international voice and video, as well as provatizing the government's domestic satellites, auctioning the radio spectrum, and establishing a firm legal and regulatory basis for a fully private, competitive market structure. This paper gives a concise overview of the context, issues, and options for telecommunications policy and regulatory reform in Mexico as the second wave of the sector reform unfolds.
