Making calls is no longer the main function of cell phones. According to the “First Survey 2022, Users of Telecommunications Services”, carried out by the Federal Institute of Telecommunications (IFT) , the average number of minutes per month that Mexicans used to call in 2021 was 209 minutes .

However, the growth of lines of this service continues to rise. In December 2021 alone, 125.9 million lines of mobile telephone service were registered, representing an increase of 2.9 million compared to the previous year.
