Mexico is the fifth largest country in South America and the fifth largest country in the world. It is bordered by the United States, Guatemala and Belize and, with a population of over 130,500,000 people, it is the eleventh most populous. Mexico’s economy is largely based upon manufacturing. Electronics is a fast-growing sector and the country is home to the sixth largest electronics industry in the world and there is production of hardware such as TVs, displays, computers, mobile phones and LCD modules. Mexico is also a prolific producer of motor vehicles and this comprises an integral part of the economy.
Opportunities in Telecommunications
The telecoms market in Mexico is gradually being opened up to competition in the hope that it will introduce more choice and lower prices for users. Although the Internet is available in most towns and cities, there is still a considerable divide between urban and rural access and the challenge for the Mexican government is to rollout broadband access to Mexico’s large rural population which comprises of around 21%. At present, 45.1% of Mexicans have access to the Internet.
The Mexican government engaged in its e-Mexico initiative in 2002. This aims to promote a digital strategy that will connect all Mexicans and offer resources such as e-health, e-learning, e-economy, e-science, e-technology and e-government to remote villages and communities by 2025. The government is using VSAT technology to connect these outlying areas.
In terms of mobile voice and data, 3G is available and 4G is gradually being rolled out in Mexico. Again, more competition in the market is required. Over the last couple of years, a consortium has been granted permission to rollout a wholesale network that will deliver mobile voice and data to outlying areas with either a lack of or no cellular service at all. As with broadband Internet, the challenge for the Mexican authorities is to enable ubiquitous connectivity.
