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.
