America Movil may take aim at Telefonica by entering Spanish wireless market

Mexican telecom investor Carlos Slim Helu reportedly plans to bid for a wireless license in Spain. Slim's America Movil, Latin America's largest telecom, plans to submit a proposal to buy a wireless license in Spain, possibly bidding for telecom holding company Auna Operadores de Telecomunicacione. Some analysts see the move as defensive, positioning Slim's America Movil against Telefonica, Latin America's second-largest wireless carrier and Movil's biggest rival. Telefonica has used its profits from its operations in Brazil and Spain to help it grab market share from America Movil in Mexico.
