Mexico's largest mobile network fails

Mexico's largest wireless network, Telcel, temporarily crashed yesterday leaving millions of Mexicans without service for most of the day. Tycoon Carlos Slim, the world's third richest man owns the network which is part of his larger company America Movil. The carrier said a technical problem in western Mexico City saturated the Telcel network. Telcel claims 40 million users across the country were affected, most of whom live in or around Mexico City where the black out was focused.
