Regulatory changes and consolidation rumours in Latin America

Telefonica in talks with Iusacell?

Telefonica and Iusacell are reported to be in talks for a potential acquisition. Iusacell is the third Mexican mobile operator and is owned by Grupo Televisa and Grupo Salinas.  A possible merger between the two or an acquisition by Telefonica - which currently has 20% market share - would place both the Spanish company and Iusacell in a  stronger position against its major competitor, América Móvil (70% market share).
