Despite being the third-largest mobile market in Latin America, the mobile penetration rate in Mexico is among the lowest in the region, at an estimated 88.9% in 2017. The Economist Intelligence Unit expects this to rise to 114.3% by the end of the 2018-22 forecast period, growing at an annual average rate of 6.4%, supported by declining handset and access costs. Fixed line connections will decline at an annual average rate of 0.2% during 2018-22.

Advanced fourth-generation (4G) and fifth-generation (5G) mobile connectivity is being initiated in Mexico. 4G connectivity is expanding rapidly, accounting for 50% of mobile connections, but almost all remaining connect-ions are still supported through 3G.

Negotiations on the North American Free-Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for the telecommunications sector showed progress in March 2018, with the US asking Mexico to stand by its commitments on interconnection charges that were a part of Mexico's 2013 sectoral reform, paving way for greater competition in the market. In return the US agreed to applying general provisions of the reform to all three countries under NAFTA.
