Mexican Federal Electricity Commission granted wholesale shared network concession

Federal Telecommunications Institute

( IFT ) plenary has decided in its fifth ordinary session to grant the Federal Electricity Commission ( CFE ) a concession for commercial use as a wholesale shared network for leasing network capacity , infrastructure and infrastructure telecommunications services to other concessionaires and authorized parties .
Therefore , it cannot directly offer services to end-users following the provisions of Article 140 of the Federal Telecommunications and Broadcasting Law .
The resolution meets the provisions of the constitutional reform on telecommunications , which provides for wholesale networks . A new competitor is inserted in this market that will make its transport network available .
The shared use of infrastructure is favored to facilitate more telecommunications service providers reaching more locations in the national territory , even those where the current service offering is low or nonexistent , promoting network deployment .
Likewise , the economies of scale associated with the deployment of the electrical infrastructure will allow greater viability in the deployment and development of the telecommunications network and , consequently , more elements for the sharing of an infrastructure that would have a more efficient and functional use for the provision of public telecommunications services .
