The Federal Institute of Telecommunications (IFT) publishes the Report on the Evolution of Plans and Rates for Fixed Telecommunications Services 2020-2022 (Report), in order to show an analysis of the evolution of the offer of plans and rates of the concessionaires that together they represent more than 80% market share and, through their names and/or trademarks, offered plans and rates for fixed internet, fixed telephony and pay television services in their different contracting modalities.

This Report identifies the evolution of the offer that each of the concessionaires makes available to users in terms of monthly rent and the basket of services included (download speed, national calls, calls/minutes to mobile, calls /minutes of international long distance (LDI) and number of channels), for the periods that comprise the first quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2022.

For the benefit and savings of users, the IFT has tools such as "I Know My Consumption", which allows the user to enter their consumption profile and find out the plans that adapt to their needs and budget. It also makes available the "Comparator of Telecommunications Services", which allows knowing and comparing in a simple and detailed way the characteristics of the mobile and fixed service plans, in their different contracting modalities, available in the country.
