The Mexican operator Megacable will enter the Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) market in November, which will allow it to market voice and data services. Last January, the company granted its subscribers a free chip to test the service for free for a one 30-day period.
Megacable’s network provider for this launch will be Altan Redes, a commercial company that operates the Red Compartida Mayorista, from where it will sale data and minutes to surf the internet to the Mexican operator, which, until now, had focused on the pay TV, internet and fixed telephony markets. ‘By the end of November we will officially launch our MVNO service. We will have very competitive packages and rates’, said Raymundo Fernandez, Co-CEO at Megacable.
According to what the Mexican Telecommunications Federal Institute (IFT) reported on Q2 2019, 118 million mobile lines are currently available in the country, of which 1.41% receive services through MVNO. Telefonica is the network with the largest number of customers, and provides minutes and data to 11 operators.
