New cellphone and data service now available in Mexico for a little as 700 pesos a YEAR!

303

CFE TEIT already has its own MVNO in Mexico with recharges of 20 GB for 100 pesos and packages of 700 pesos for one year of service.

‘CFE Telecomunicaciones e Internet para todos’ already has its own virtual mobile operator. Silently, the agency launched its own offer of mobile phone services ” without forced plans “, with ” 4.5G technology ” and even ” national coverage “, according to its official site.

First, the packages. There are those ” individuals ” for which the user pays and receives a package of benefits. The amounts of the recharge are from 30 to 300 pesos and are the following:

  • 30 pesos – 4 GB, 250 minutes and 125 SMS valid for three days. No hot spot.
  • 45 pesos – 4 GB, 250 minutes and 125 SMS valid for three days. With hotspot.
  • 100 pesos – 20 GB, 1,000 minutes and 500 SMS valid for 15 days. No hot spot.
  • 150 pesos – 8 GB, 1,500 minutes and 500 SMS valid for 30 days. With hotspot.
  • 200 pesos – 40 GB, 1,500 minutes and 1,000 SMS valid for 30 days. No hot spot.
  • 300 pesos – 40 GB, 1,500 minutes and 1,000 SMS valid for 30 days. With hotspot.

Commercial offers of less than 50 pesos are not the most competitive when compared to the best top-ups of 50 pesos in Mexico, according to the IFT rate comparison. The 100-peso recharge offered by 20 GB is attractive for the amount of data (even though 10 GB is at a reduced speed), but its main problem is that the validity is 15 days and that it does not allow the use of hotspot.


On the other hand, ‘CFE TEIT’ also has six-monthly and annual packages, which are as follows:

  • 400 pesos – six-month plan with monthly benefits of 5 GB, 1,500 minutes, 500 SMS, and with hotspot.
  • 800 pesos – six-month plan with monthly benefits of 40 GB, 1,500 minutes, 500 SMS, and no hotspot.
  • 1,200 pesos – six-month plan with monthly benefits of 40 GB, 1,500 minutes, 500 SMS, and with hotspot.
  • 700 pesos – annual plan with monthly benefits of 5 GB, 1,500 minutes, 500 SMS, and with hotspot.
  • 1,400 pesos – annual plan with monthly benefits of 40 GB, 1,500 minutes, 500 SMS, and no hotspot.
  • 2,100 pesos – annual plan with monthly benefits of 40 GB, 1,500 minutes, 500 SMS, and with hotspot.

The annual packages are undoubtedly the most attractive of the commercial offer. In the first annual package, 5 GB per month with hotspots is offered for 700 pesos, similar to the moBig offer.

The cover issue

At the moment the biggest obstacle to using the CFE service is not the commercial offer, but the coverage. As of August 9, the coverage map has only a few coverage areas, mainly in states such as Oaxaca, Puebla and Hidalgo. The map is as follows:

‘CFE Telecomunicaciones e Internet para Todos’ works with the Altán network, but its concession title does not allow it to operate in locations where there are already other operators, so as not to generate market distortions.

‘CFE Telecomunicaciones e Internet para Todos’ is a public company created in 2019 to bring internet to all of Mexico.
