AT&T announced their intention to acquire Mexican wireless provider Iusacell, according to their press release, Nov 7.

Industry analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment.

Over the last several years AT&T has had the intention of finding new ways to expand their business.

  •     That’s why they are moving into television with their IPTV service called Uverse.
  •     That’s why they are building out and offering a very high speed Internet service called AT&T GigaPower.
  •     That’s why they want to acquire DirecTV.
  •     And that is why they want to acquire Iusacell in Mexico. It’s all about expansion for AT&T.

“I expect we will continue to see this kind of expansion activity from AT&T for years to come.” Says Telecom Analyst Jeff Kagan.

Mexico is early in it’s wireless data build out and AT&T sees the same opportunity for growth there as they have seen here in the US marketplace over the last seven years.

“This is another big growth opportunity for AT&T.” Says Kagan.
