Colocating on the border in cities like El Paso is essential for networks that want to service the Mexican market successfully.  The network infrastructure in Mexico splits traffic into two segments, routing the North through the U.S and servicing the South from within the country.

The northern states of Mexico benefit from the proximity they have with international Tier-1 networks in the United States. The city of El Paso, for example, is easily accessible and its location on the border provides a strategic location for Mexican operators looking to offload to markets like Dallas, Los Angeles, or even Phoenix.

For internet providers, El Paso provides a direct route that runs all the way to Torreón, Coahuila. This route connects half of Mexico and helps networks to avoid long travel distances within the country to access hubs like McAllen or connect to Monterrey.
