All over the world, certain signs herald the changing of seasons. In Mexico City, one of the signs comes along the majestic Paseo de la Reforma, the capital's principal thoroughfare and probably its loveliest.
This week the boulevard appears as if painted in orange; in a few weeks, it will be red.
Three times a year, a small army of city gardeners plants a nearly two-mile section of Reforma's leafy median with the season's iconic flowers. Orange marigolds for the Day of the Dead. Red poinsettias for the Christmas season. Amber kalanchoe succulents for the spring and summer.
Anti-trust agency finds America Movil, Telefonica, Iusacell dominant in mobile market, clearing way for tighter regulationSubmitted by mexbiznews on Tue, 11/01/2011 - 4:03am

America Movil, Telefonica and Grupo Iusacell are dominant in Mexico’s market for completing mobile-phone calls, the nation’s antitrust agency concluded, paving the way for tighter regulation of their fees.
The three communications carriers, which together have more than 95 percent of Mexico’s mobile-phone subscriptions, each have “substantial power” in the market for connecting incoming calls from rivals, the commission said Monday on its website.
The ruling concludes a probe that took more than three years after the agency first found the three companies dominant in a preliminary decision.
The ruling would allow Mexico’s Federal Telecommunications Commission to craft rules governing call completion to limit the carriers’ market power.
Mony de Swaan, president of the phone regulator, said earlier this year the agency was studying ways to create regulations based on other antitrust rulings on dominance.
An America Movil who can’t be named under company policy declined to comment. A Telefonica official declined to comment and a Iusacell official didn’t respond to e-mail messages.
