Movistar Mexico is currently evaluating 5G plans and the technological infrastructure necessary

Mexican operator Movistar, owned by Spanish telecommunications company Telefonica, is considering a launch of 5G in Mexico via a network sharing agreement with AT&T, according to recent press reports.

“The infrastructure sharing model that we signed with AT&T means that we have that possibility. As long as they start with this process, we have access to it,” local newspaper Milenio quoted Alfonso Gómez, CEO of Telefónica Hispam, as saying.
