This situation did not change much after the introduction of a new player, Swedish company Ericsson, which henceforth shared the market with its American rival. la ciudad de México vio el nacimiento de un mercado nuevo durante el Porfiriato (1877-1911): el mercado del servicio telefónico. Este ensayo trata acerca de la creación de este mercado haciendo hincapié en su carácter privado y la estructura monopólica del mercado urbano.
