Austria’s telecom market is dominated by the incumbent Telekom Austria and by Magenta Telekom, the operator formed in May 2019 by the merger of T-Mobile Austria and the principal cableco UPC Austria. There is effective competitive pressure in both the fixed-line broadband and mobile sectors. In common with operators elsewhere in Europe, those in Austria are focussed on the provision of bundled services as a measure to attract and retain customers, which was the basis for T-Mobile Austria’s acquisition of UPC Austria, which was approved by competition authorities in July 2018 on the basis that their service offerings were complementary.

This report presents key aspects of the Austrian telecom and ICT markets, including statistical data on the country, the fixed network services sector and telecom infrastructure.
