13 Oct 2015

US telecoms giant AT&T has confirmed its first 4G activity in Mexico – where it completed the dual acquisition of Iusacell and Nextel earlier this year – switching on LTE technology in six cities, namely: Atlacomulco (Estado de Mexico), Cuernavaca and Cuautla (both Morelos) and Pachuca, Tepeji and Tulancingo (all Hidalgo). Thaddeus Arroyo, CEO of AT&T Mexico, commented: ‘The mobile internet in the United States created an engine of economic growth, and we believe it will do the same here in Mexico’. Going forward, AT&T expects to cover 75 million people, nearly two-thirds of the Mexican population, by the end of 2016, and 100 million people by the end of 2018.
