Ericsson, América Móvil partner for Mexico 5G deployment

Swedish ICT technology provider Ericsson will partner in Mexico with local telecommunications leader América Móvil for the upcoming deployment of 5G networks, an Ericsson executive told local daily Milenio.

Elia Hanna, Ericsson's Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean head, was quoted as saying that "Mexico is a very important market for us as here are three of the largest global-scale competitors (AT&T, Telefónica Movistar and América Móvil) and the network, in collaboration with Claro, will be deployed in the coming months."

América Móvil has said that it will be the first to deploy 5G networks in the country, and recently announced that it will start 5G tests in Puerto Rico next year.

The new network, Hanna added, will cut video download times by two thirds.
