The Mexican Telephone Company operated in Guadalajara, Puebla, Oaxaca, Veracruz, Mérida, Progreso, Guanajuato, León, Querétaro, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosí, Monterrey and Saltillo. A corporation formed under the laws of New York in 1882. The company operated under the Bell telephone patents and concessions from the government of Mexico in the Republic of Mexico.
