Mexico to likely unveil telecoms reform fine print

Friday, March 14, 2014

Mexico's government may send to the Senate as soon as Friday secondary laws that lay out the fine print of a reform aimed at boosting competition in the telecommunications sector, a top lawmaker said.

The secondary laws will flesh out a constitutional overhaul approved last year to open up the country's phone and TV industries, which are dominated by billionaire Carlos Slim's América Móvil and the broadcaster Televisa.

It's very likely tomorrow the telecommunications secondary laws reach the Senate," Emilio Gamboa, Senate leader for the ruling PRI party said.
