America Movil Chief Executive Officer Daniel Hajj told a new conference in Mexico that the telecom operator would eliminate roaming charges from Mexico to the United States for post-pay customers who opt to pay an extra 50 pesos ($3.16) per month.
The business organisation would like to follow your lead for prepay clients, which put right up greater than 80 proportion of that Mexico customer bottom, and increase the rip hide Canada, he informed a information seminar in Mexico City.
The total Capex (capital expenditures) of America Movil reached 70.9 billion pesos in the first half of the year, the company said on Thursday announcing the Q2 financial result.
The telecoms company, which is controlled by the family of billionaire Carlos Slim, said net profit in the April-June period was 14.05 billion pesos ($895 million), missing analyst expectations of 14.48 billion pesos from a Reuters poll.
America Movil was still looking at how to sell some assets but was in no rush, said Hajj at an event in Mexico City. AT&T Inc., which acquired Mexican operators Grupo Iusacell SA and Nextel Mexico, in January offered its World Connect users unlimited calls from the U.S.to Mexico.
Rivals AT&T, Telefonica and T-Mobile United States have all also introduced new packages with free calls between Mexico and the US this year. Responding to the challenge of AT&T’s entry on its home market, America Movil announced the launch of its “Sin Fronteras” plan, allowing its Mexican and USA postpaid customers to roam in the respective countries at the same cost as domestic communications.
At the time, Hajj said the company no longer wanted to sell infrastructure, a share of its frequencies, or spectrum.
