Austria - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Austria’s telecom market is dominated by the incumbent Telekom Austria and the cableco UPC Austria, though there has been greater competitive pressure in the fixed-line broadband and mobile sectors in recent years. 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. To compete more effectively with Telekom Austria, by far the main player in this segment, T-Mobile Austria in late 2017 acquired UPC Austria. The deal was approved by competition authorities in July 2018, on the basis that their service offerings are 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. It presents an overview of recent regulatory developments, including broadband access and carrier preselection. The major fixed network operators are also profiled, together with the most recent performance data and an analysis on market strategies.

Key developments:

  • Telekom Austria sets up A1 Digital International subsidiary focussed on digital businesses and technologies;
  • Mobile sector revenue accounting for two-thirds of total telecom revenue;
