­Between 1990 and 2007, the telecommunications sector grew almost five times faster than the economy in Mexico and has gone a long way in reducing the economic and social difficulties in this country. Buoyed by dynamic technological progress in recent years, the telecommunications sector has attracted increased investment and productivity, providing further momentum to the economy.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan finds that the market earned revenues of $28,994 million in 2007 and estimates this to reach $36,399 million in 2013.

"The wireless telephony traffic's growth rate was 60.5 percent in Q1 2008, an increase of more than 20 percent over Q1 2007, meaning that this is the most dynamic sector of the telecommunications industry," says Frost & Sullivan Consulting Analyst Jose Manuel Mercado. "In 2007, it contributed 6 percent to the gross domestic product (GDP); in 1990 the contribution was around the 1.1 percent."

For instance, Telmex is starting to offer bundled services with the condition that the subscriber signs a contract that is binding for a minimum of 12 months. This contract clearly violates the number portability idea of free movement from one company to another with the same number. Once the violation by the operator is reported to the regulator, it will be stripped of its TV-Pay concession or any other concession title for triple play solutions.
