Mexico - internet para todos


Mexico ranks 14lh among the largest countries in the world in surface area and has an estimated population of more than 126 million. While the majority reside in urban areas, large cities, and their metropolitan regions, such as Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey, the rural population still represents a significant portion, with approximately 20% of people, around 25 million, living in communities and regions away from large urban centers.
These regions often face challenges in accessing essential services, such as education, health, and infrastructure, becoming frequent focuses of initiatives to promote equal opportunities and improve quality of life.
Among the infrastructure gaps is telecommunications. There is a clear inequality in mobile signal coverage offered throughout the country. Providing quality telecommunication and internet service goes beyond just delivering connection. It also implies access to education, equal opportunities, work, and medical services, among others.
In other words, access to information and quality of life are closely linked. Hence, the importance of the Telecomunicaciones e Internet Para Todos project, led by the Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE).

The CFE project, Telecomunicaciones e Internet Para Todos, is an initiative in Mexico that aims to bring broadband internet access to rural and remote areas of the country. Launched in partnership with the federal government, it seeks to reduce digital exclusion in these regions, offering connectivity services to communities that previously had difficulties accessing the internet. Through the implementation of telecommunications infrastructure, such as towers and fiber optic networks, CFE seeks to expand internet coverage in areas where it was previously non-existent or limited, contributing to the economic and social development of these communities.
Its implementation has occurred gradually and comprehensively, with the installation of towers and expansion of fiber optic networks in several regions of Mexico. To date, 21 locations have been served: Aguascalientes, Baja California, Baja California Sur, Chiapas, Mexico City, Durango, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Jalisco, State of Mexico, Michoacan de Ocampo, Nayarit, Nuevo Leon, Oaxaca, Puebla, Quintana Rao, Sinaloa, Sonora, Tabasco, Veracruz de Ignacio de la Llave and Yucatan.
In addition to internet access, the initiative also aims to provide mobile services and improve connectivity in areas of public interest, such as schools, hospitals, and community centers, boosting digital inclusion and facilitating access to essential services. The complete project, ambitious in its numbers, foresees the installation of 2,800 telecommunications towers by 2024, benefiting 6.4 million people in rural communities across the country.


QMC is proud to be one of the strategic partners of the Comisión Federal de Electricidad in this ambitious Telecomunicaciones e Internet Para Todos project. Throughout 2022, QMC was responsible for building more than 100 cell towers in rural and remote areas, bringing connectivity and internet access to communities previously lacking telecommunications services. This initiative perfectly aligns with QMC Telecom’s vision of promoting growth, connecting people, and solving customers’ needs.

The state of Oaxaca, for example, received a large portion of these towers. With a population of just over four million inhabitants, this region, in the south of the country, is famous for its indigenous cultures. Tourism also stands out. Among the most visited destinations is the capital, Oaxaca Juarez, which has a rich colonial history and is famous for its well­ preserved architecture and archaeological sites such as Monte Alban. Puerto Escondido and Huatulco, famous coastal cities with beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, and great options for surfing and diving, are also part of the state and are frequently visited throughout the year.
Another well-served location was Chiapas, one of the poorest in the country in terms of income and, at the same time, one of the richest in terms of culture and natural beauty. The state is considered the birthplace of the Mayans, and there are several buildings from this advanced civilization, such as the historic city of Palanque. Nearby is the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, one of the most important protected areas in the country and one of the largest in Mesoamerica.
The partnership with CFE in the Telecomunicaciones e Internet Para Todos project represents a significant milestone in the journey of connecting people and promoting inclusive digital development, becoming a key piece in building a more connected and prosperous future for the country. To implement more than 100 towers to date, resources from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) were used through a credit line of US$ 45 million, which covers, in addition to Mexico, other countries in Latin America, such as Colombia and Peru, designed to encourage investments in telecommunications infrastructure in underserved regions.
