Tech, Media & Telecom (TMT)
Reform of the telecom sector promises to be as transformative as that of the energy sector. The new autonomous regulatory agency in Mexico is—with real sanctioning power that has imposed monopoly-busting asymmetric regulation as well as infrastructure-sharing mandates. As with energy, the reform’s main objective is to enhance Mexican competitiveness by bringing down factor costs and, in this case, by creating a more competitive environment that will lead to an improvement in the quality of telecom services.
Our TMT practice has its finger on the sector’s pulse and is closely tracking developments and identifying business opportunities for prospective clients. Our team provides the policy analysis to better understand the reform’s provisions, while assisting clients in navigating the relevant government agencies, and providing business development support by identifying opportunities and performing market assessments and intelligence reports.
