AT & T is not agreeing with the change made by the Federal Institute for Communications Technology (IFT) to a calendar for the active separation of Telmex and Telnor.
In an interview for a Notimex group, the former vice president of AT & T External Affairs, Mónica Aspe Bernal, stated that the unit's decision would only raise fears about the region.
Last Wednesday, the IFT provided information on the two-day change in the calendar that was set up in the final plan of implementation of that process, although it did not change the original term for two years for the separation.
“What we want, at the same time, is to support the Ifetel's decision to establish the closing date of January 2021 of the active separation process, in that we believe it is essential. "the regulator to be consistent in maintaining these key dates," said Aspe Bernal.
At the same time, he said that change to the intermediate interiors within the separation process would bring any questions, without information, because it was not part of the negotiation process.
Recently, IFT has carried out two public consultations on the effectiveness of the competition of measures put in place by the Preponderant Economic Agents (AEP), in telecommunications and broadcasting.
“We will be involved in the review process, during the consultations and then we will move our opinion on the competition in the sector, the efficiency of the measures so far, how we will see this industry and how we can continue to reduce it. the digital divide, linking more people, consumers about benefit, continuing to invest in Mexico, "It has been concluded.
During the week, the governing body said the agreed change of September 30, 2019 is the deadline for displaying workforce migration plans, shift of resources and network and infrastructure elements.
In addition to setting the date for completion of the change on January 31, 2020, changes which will not affect the day-to-day operation of Teléfonos de México (Telmex) and Teléfonos del Noroeste (Telnor), or on the provision of wholesale services to the date that they lend to a variety of offenders.
What is a functional divide?
The new company will not offer fixed telephone or internet services, but provides wholesale services, for example, with the access network and Telmex / Telnor connections, to maximize competition in the market.
As a dynamic economic agent, América Móvil must allow small companies to use Telmex infrastructure. This new company would rely on managing access to the phone network.
The aim of IFT was to ensure that smaller companies have more efficient and uneven access to established infrastructure, América Móvil. Therefore, Telmex would not control third parties who would like to use their infrastructure.
IFT in March 2017 ordered the separation of Telmex as part of the non-executive measures to extract power from the pre-sound economic agent. The regulator allocated a period of 65 days to deliver the plan, but América Móvil took 22 days later; who propose that they already expected a measure of these dimensions.
