Mexico’s Supreme Court has ruled that sector regulator Comision Federal de Telecomunicaciones (Cofetel) has power to set interconnection rates in the case of a dispute between operators, El Economista reports. The case stemmed from Cofetel’s intervention in a dispute between Axtel and Telcel over interconnection rates between 2005 and 2007. The watchdog’s decision was subsequently challenged on the basis that Article 9A, Section X of the Federal Telecommunications Act was unconstitutional. The apex court ruled unanimously in favour of Cofetel, saying that there was no constitutional violation in the provisions of the Act.
