Austria - Mobile Infrastructure, Broadband, Operators - Statistics and Analyses

Austria's competitive mobile market is dominated by the three operators 3 Austria, T-Mobile Austria and Telekom Austria's own unit A1. However, the markets also benefits from a growing number of new entrants in the MVNO sector, which by early 2017 collectively had a 6.7% share of the market by subscribers. Part of the growth in the MVNO sector is due to regulatory concessions by which 3 Austria, as part of its take-over of Orange Austria, was obliged to provide a third of its network capacity to support up to 16 MVNOs.

The competitive environment has led to relatively low ARPU for operators, as well as some of the region's lowest tariffs for consumers. The operators' LTE networks have benefited from regulatory measures which have allowed operators to refarm existing 2G and 3G spectrum for LTE, while spectrum in the 700MHz has also been set aside for mobile broadband use once this band is released from broadcasters.

Key developments:

Regulator making progress with 3.4-3.6GHz auction for 5G services;
T-Mobile Austria expands Narrowband IoT capabilities, trials 5G in Innsbruck, launches VoLTE service;
ZTE signs an MoU with 3 Austria to trial pre-5G technologies;
MVNOs secure 6.7% market share of subscribers;
A1 and Nokia trial tri-carrier technology;
Regulator reclassifies GSM spectrum for 3G and LTE use;
700MHz spectrum to be assigned for 5G use from 2020;
Telekom Austria adds M2M platforms;
Report update includes the regulator's market data to Q3 2017, telcos' financial and operating data to Q1 2018, recent market developments.
