    Who owns Movistar?

    Looking at Telefonica's assets, I could have sworn that Telefonica owns the Mexican GSM network Movistar through Telefonica Moviles. Is Telefonica Moviles part of Telefonica? Can anyone confirm or dispute this question? I checked GSMWorld.com and Telefonica's sites to no real avail. Telefonica Moviles lists Movistar as being their network in Spain so I wonder if Telefonica Moviles also owns Movistar Mexico.

    Here you go:

    Telefónica Móviles México, S.A. de C.V., está conformada por Telefónica Móviles, S.A. (92%) y Grupo Pegaso (8%).

    Telefónica Móviles México, S.A. de C.V., is owned by Telefónica Móviles, S.A. (92%) and Grupo Pegaso (8%).

    So it is the same company.

    I'm afraid my Spanish is quite rusty after not having used it for a good number of years but I'll try anyway.
