Austria - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

The Austrian fixed-line broadband market continues to be dominated by the DSL sector, which rapidly overtook cable as the preferred access method. UPC Austria is the leading cable operator, while Telekom Austria retains a leading share of the DSL market. The operator has invested in vectoring VDSL and G.fast technologies in a bid to deliver fast broadband services in urban areas with less investment than is required via FttP. However, there is a shift in investment towards fibre, with the incumbent having invested €400 million during 2015 to improve its networks, and with the government having allocated €1 billion in public funding to upgrade infrastructure nationally.

Key developments:

Government pledges €1 billion in funding to upgrade national broadband availability; UPC Austria acquires regional cableco Kabel-TV Stadl-Paura; Telekom Austria delivers 100Mb/s with G.fast, commits €400 million for domestic broadband infrastructure upgrades, expands satellite broadband to deliver bundled services; Xlink launches 1Gb/s FttP broadband offer; UPC Austria tests 1.3Gb/s service; TA trials vectoring technology; report update includes the regulator’s market data to Q1 2016, telcos’ financial and operating data to Q2 2016, recent market developments.
