Orange and "3" merged in 2013 into one network and the Orange brandname was dropped, but still two different "3" networks are shown when you make a scan. In May 2019 T-Mobile was rebranded to Magenta Telekom as a result of the merger with the cable-company UPC. In addition, there are many Sub-Brands and MVNOs on all networks.
   
2G GSM is on 900 and 1800 MHz like in most of Europe. 3G UMTS is on 2100 MHz. 4G/LTE is on 2600 MHz (B7) in cities and 800 MHz (B20) on the countryside on A1, on 800 MHz (B7), 1800 MHz (B3) and 2600 MHz (B7) on Magenta and on 900 MHz (B8), 1800 MHz (B3), 2100 MHz (B1) and 2600 (B7) MHz on 3.

Data rates in Austria are among the lowest in Central Europe. Ironically, there are hardly any good EU roaming offers for prepaid cards. While data packages are sold domestically for as low as 0.1c per MB, EU roaming rates are still mostly around 6c per MB.

Unlike some other European countries, SIM cards in Austria have been anonymous and were not registered until the end of 2018. A new security law required all new prepaid SIM cards to be registered from 1/JAN/2019. All previously existing prepaid SIM cards need to be registered by 1/SEP/2019 or they will no longer be able to be recharged thereafter. Though all top-ups made until this date will remain valid beyond.

The exact implementation of the registration scheme is still evolving. In the country the branded shops of the major providers will do the registration for free. Often partner shops do the same, but may charge up to 10 €. Most brands can be registered through an online verification process like in Germany. Be aware that not all brands accept foreign IDs for their online registration. You can also use any shop displaying the green sign "''Hier Wertkarte registrieren". Most post offices will do the registration too. ''You will need to show your ID card or passport.

In the country, the branded shops of major providers will do the registration for free or a minimal charge. Often partner shops or post offices do the same but may charge up to 10 €. Most brands can be registered through an online verification process too, which is similar to Germany. Be aware that not all brands accept all foreign IDs from overseas countries for their online registration. These visitors should better go to a branded store instead. Citizens from EU countries can try the ''Foto-Identifikation ''which is now available online for most brands. For this process, you need to have a reliable internet connection and a cam as you upload a pic of your ID document and a selfie to get registered.
   
MediaMarkt and Saturn have suspended their own brands because of the new registration scheme. It's not known, what's happening with the brands sold in supermarkets, service stations or at tobacconists. The be prepared to go to a different place or online for registration.
+
Be aware that brands sold in supermarkets, service stations or at tobacconists can rarely be registered there. Then be prepared to go next to a provider store, post office or online for registration.

Online top-up vouchers are available for most networks at [http://www.onlineaufladen.at/ onlineaufladen.at] without surcharges. Note that if you would like to use your credit or debit card on this website, payments are possible with [https://www.mastercard.us/en-us/consumers/features-benefits/securecode.html Mastercard Securecode] , [https://www.visaeurope.com/making-payments/verified-by-visa/ Verified by Visa] , Diners Club and Maestro Cards that have [https://www.mastercard.us/en-us/consumers/features-benefits/securecode.html Mastercard Securecode] enabled. Visitors from some EU countries may also use their online banking account to buy top-ups. Since this is restricted to certain countries and banks, check beforehand if your country is in the drop down menu. Further, you need to be able to receive text messages to you home SIM, so if you dont want to connect it to a network in Austria, this method wont work. Minimum top-up value is mostly 10 €.

For top-ups most Austrian retailers don't sell scratch cards, but hand out a paper slip with a PIN code. This usually involves either picking up a tag like seen [https://abload.de/img/img_20170816_173205a7rxq.jpg here] or asking the cashier for a ''Ladebon'' (= recharge voucher) for your carrier. You will be issued a paper slip containing the voucher PIN to be entered into your phone.

The Austrian operators follow different approaches. Some block data roaming completely or apply a limit of about 2.8 GB per 10 € retail price of the plan, that is given out at domestic rates. All providers apply a surcharge of 0.72c per MB for continuous roaming after more than 4 months.

This means that the price for EU roaming is mostly between 3.60 € per GB (as long as you stay within the included EU roaming allowance) and 7.20 € per GB (when the excess rate is applied). So roaming data use on Austrian SIM cards abroad remains much more expensive than domestic use in Austria, even under the 'Roam like at Home' rules.

Drei.at Austria (called 'drei' spoken like 'dry' for 3) used to be the smallest network in the country until they bought Orange and merged in 2013 to be become a very competitive player. 4G/LTE is on 1800 and 2600 MHz and covers already 98% of population: [https://www.drei.at/portal/de/bottomnavi/kontakt-und-hilfe/netzabdeckung/ 3 coverage map].

Drei Austria (called 'drei' spoken like 'dry' for 3) used to be the smallest network in the country until they bought Orange and merged in 2013 to become a very competitive player. 4G/LTE is on 1800 MHz (B3) and 2100 MHz (B1) nationwide as well as 900MHz (B8), 2600 MHz (B7) & 2600 MHz (TDD B38) in some areas and covers already 98% of population: [https://www.drei.at/portal/de/bottomnavi/kontakt-und-hilfe/netzabdeckung/ 3 coverage map].
   
Their market share is now on par with T-Mobile and network coverage and speeds are on par with A1 in 2017 on a high level. In the meantime, Drei has opened 4G/LTE for most of their prepaid plans. They offer the lowest rates of any network operator. 3 offers domestic roaming with the "3-AT" (T-Mobile 2G) network. Through automatic selection your phone will switch to this network if the connection to the home 3 network becomes weak. Even though you don't pay a surcharge for using "3-AT", roaming data is limited. So either stick to 3 network by manual selection or enable roaming data.

==== '''EU roaming ''' ====
HoT provides data roaming in the EU at domestic rates, but only if you register your SIM card with an Austrian address. For all non-registered SIM cards HoT assumes that the user is not tied to Austria and adds surcharges for EU roaming from the start. Furthermore, HoT applies an EU cap to its package and a strict 4-months limit for permanent roaming at domestic rates. Additionally, when roaming in some countries the service may be limited to 3G instead of 4G/LTE. The unlimited data pack is valid in Austria only, without any international roaming.

EU roaming is available on all of the plans except for the ''Data unlimited'' plan. But, HoT applies a strict 4-months limit for permanent roaming at domestic rates. Additionally, when roaming in some countries the service may be limited to 3G instead of 4G/LTE.
   
For light users their per-MB rate ist still one of the lowest in Europe. To the default domestic rate of 0.9c per MB, a surcharge of 0.72c/MB may be added, making it 1.62c/MB in EU roaming without further restrictions.

Basics

There are three mobile operators in Austria:

  • A1
  • Magenta Telekom (formerly T-Mobile)
  • 3 (= "Drei")

Orange and "3" merged in 2013 into one network and the Orange brandname was dropped, but still two different "3" networks are shown when you make a scan. In May 2019 T-Mobile was rebranded to Magenta Telekom as a result of the merger with the cable-company UPC. In addition, there are many Sub-Brands and MVNOs on all networks.

Cellular frequencies in Austria per carrier:

Carrier 2G/GSM 3G/UMTS 4G/LTE 5G/NR
A1 900 MHz (B8)

1800 MHz (B3)

900 MHz (B8)

2100 MHz (B1)

800 MHz (B20)*, 1800 MHz (B3)¹ & 2600 MHz (B7)² 3410-3800 MHz (n77/n78)
Magenta 800 MHz (B20)*, 1800 MHz (B3)¹, 2100 MHz (B1)⁴ & 2600 MHz (B7)²
3 900 MHz (B8)³, 1800 MHz (B3)*, 2100 MHz (B1)*, 2600 MHz (B7)³ & 2600 MHz (TDD B38)³

*Used for nationwide 4G/LTE coverage. ¹Used in smaller and bigger cities. ²Used in bigger cities. ³Limited availability. ⁴Used in more and more areas.

Mobile coverage is excellent for a country with difficult topography and similar to Switzerland on a very high level. In 4G/LTE all three networks cover more than 98%. This survey follows the historical order mostly used in the country and is no ranking. 5G/NR was launched on all three networks in 2019/2020 but isn't open to pre-paid customers for now.

Data rates in Austria are among the lowest in Central Europe. Ironically, there are hardly any good EU roaming offers for prepaid cards. While data packages are sold domestically for as low as 0.1c per MB, EU roaming rates are still mostly around 6c per MB.

A prepaid SIM card is locally called "Wertkarte". This is a specific Austrian expression, not used in Germany.

Note that at the airport of Vienna the small counters that sell SIM cards charge up to excessive 40 € for registration. Better go to a branded store or choose a downtown option.

New SIM card registration (effective 1/JAN/2019)

Wertkarte Registrieren
Unlike some other European countries, SIM cards in Austria have been anonymous and were not registered until the end of 2018. A new security law required all new prepaid SIM cards to be registered from 1/JAN/2019. All previously existing prepaid SIM cards need to be registered by 1/SEP/2019 or they will no longer be able to be recharged thereafter. Though all top-ups made until this date will remain valid beyond.

In the country, the branded shops of major providers will do the registration for free or a minimal charge. Often partner shops or post offices do the same but may charge up to 10 €. Most brands can be registered through an online verification process too, which is similar to Germany. Be aware that not all brands accept all foreign IDs from overseas countries for their online registration. These visitors should better go to a branded store instead. Citizens from EU countries can try the Foto-Identifikation which is now available online for most brands. For this process, you need to have a reliable internet connection and a cam as you upload a pic of your ID document and a selfie to get registered.

Be aware that brands sold in supermarkets, service stations or at tobacconists can rarely be registered there. Then be prepared to go next to a provider store, post office or online for registration.

Recharging

Online top-up vouchers are available for most networks at onlineaufladen.at without surcharges. Note that if you would like to use your credit or debit card on this website, payments are possible with Mastercard Securecode, Verified by Visa, Diners Club and Maestro Cards that have Mastercard Securecode enabled. Visitors from some EU countries may also use their online banking account to buy top-ups. Since this is restricted to certain countries and banks, check beforehand if your country is in the drop-down menu. Further, you need to be able to receive text messages to your home SIM, so if you don't want to connect it to a network in Austria, this method won't work. The minimum top-up value is mostly 10 €.

For top-ups, most Austrian retailers don't sell scratch cards but hand out a paper slip with a PIN code. This usually involves either picking up a tag like seen here or asking the cashier for a Ladebon (= recharge voucher) for your carrier. You will be issued a paper slip containing the voucher PIN to be entered into your phone.

EU roaming

EU flag
Austria is part of the EU, where since 2017 new international roaming rules have been enforced. In most European countries you can now 'roam like at home' on an Austrian SIM card at domestic rates rather than excessive roaming rates. For specifics about the new regulation check the European Union chapter and every provider below.

Austrian operators follow different approaches. Some block data roaming completely or apply a limit of about 4.8 GB per 10 € retail price of the plan, that is given out at domestic rates. All providers apply a surcharge of 0.4c per MB for continuous roaming after more than 4 months.

This means that the price for EU roaming is mostly between 2 € per GB (as long as you stay within the included EU roaming allowance) and 4.50 € per GB (when the excess rate is applied). So roaming data use on Austrian SIM cards abroad remains more expensive than domestic use in Austria, even under the 'Roam like at Home' rules.

A1

A1 Logo

A1 Telekom Austria is still the biggest telecommunication provider in the country with a very high standard: A1 coverage map 4G/LTE is available on 800 MHz (B20) nationwide, 1800 MHz (B3) in smaller and bigger cities as well as 2600 MHz (B7) in bigger cities, covering 98% of population in 2019.

Since March 2019, A1 has discontinued all international roaming for prepaid. A1 can therefore only be used within Austria.

Availability

The starter pack comes in two versions:

  • B.free Welcome Package - for voice, SMS, and data for 9.90 €. It comes preloaded with 5,000 units as mins/SMS/MBs usable for the first 28 days.

Drei Austria ("3")

Group-three4

Drei Austria (called 'drei' spoken like 'dry' for 3) used to be the smallest network in the country until they bought Orange and merged in 2013 to become a very competitive player. 4G/LTE is on 1800 MHz (B3) and 2100 MHz (B1) nationwide as well as 900MHz (B8), 2600 MHz (B7) & 2600 MHz (TDD B38) in some areas and covers already 98% of population: 3 coverage map.

Their market share is now on par with T-Mobile and network coverage and speeds are on par with A1 in 2017 on a high level. In the meantime, Drei has opened 4G/LTE for most of their prepaid plans. They offer the lowest rates of any network operator. 3 offers domestic roaming with the "3-AT" (Magenta 2G) network. Through automatic selection, your phone will switch to this network if the connection to the home 3 network becomes weak. Even though you don't pay a surcharge for using "3-AT", roaming data is limited. So either stick to 3 network by manual selection or enable roaming data.

EU roaming

Some of the plans are completely blocked for roaming, while others are not. For the Talk plans, only those with "EU" in the name allow EU-Roaming and for the Surf plans only the unlimited plans allow EU-Roaming.

Drei treats the Channel Islands as "EU-zone" for voice and SMS only. Data is charged at excessive 15 € per MB. Note that for the Surf tariffs, only the Flat tariffs have EU roaming, up to the given limit.

Drei is known to employ a time-based FUP against permanent roaming in the EU. This means that you will receive a SMS after 3 months of roaming to prove stable links to Austria or face surcharges from the 4th month. This seems not to apply to their standard EU Klassik tariff.

EU roaming

EU roaming is available on all of the plans except for the Data unlimited plan. But, HoT applies a strict 4-months limit for permanent roaming at domestic rates. Additionally, when roaming in some countries the service may be limited to 3G instead of 4G/LTE.

For light users, their per-MB rate is still one of the lowest in Europe. To the default domestic rate of 0.9c per MB, a surcharge of 0.72c/MB may be added, making it 1.62c/MB in EU roaming without further restrictions.

More information

  • for some devices, you must enable data roaming as this MVNO may be recognized as a roaming network. Be careful when enabled in near the Swiss border as Swiss roaming is charged at 15.36 € per MB (!!!), better make a manual network selection and lock it on Hot or Magenta.
  • on some older devices "tele.ring" not HoT, T-Mobile or Magenta is shown as network ID
  • tethering is allowed

It comes as hybrid in all three sizes either for 1.99 € without credit or for 2.99 € with 1 € credit preloaded. In addition they sometimes set up temporary stands in front of MediaMarkt/Saturn stores and sell SIMs for 8 € with 10 € credit preloaded. You can also order starter packs online and pay by credit card, but delivered only to Austrian and German postal addresses without surcharge.

Registration can be done in the store that sell eety by showing foreign ID documents too. For online registration, some (mostly European) passports are accepted when you choose Foto-Identifikation.

EU roaming

Eety applies "roam like at home" in the EU at domestic rates up on some plans only up to a certain limit shown for each plan in the tables above. Without limits, it's only possible staying for roaming on the Basis plan at 0.9c/MB restricted to 7 Mbit/s on 3G. After 4 months of continuous roaming, a surcharge of 0.72c/MB may be applied additionally. In 2018 they added the Top plan available with a roaming option.

In an unusual arrangement, visitors from Hong Kong can purchase eety SIMs from 3 in Hong Kong before departure, but SIMs purchased in Hong Kong cost HK$ 158 (= more than 18 €) or HK$ 198 (= more than 22 €) for two, are preloaded with 3.3 GB data only, are non-reloadable, and have a non-extendable validity period of 30 days from first use. The website says that all EU/EEA countries are covered plus North Cyprus. The latter country is questionable and could be a mistake, as it follows EU/EEA zoning and excludes Switzerland and Turkey too.  

This is now the only Austrian SIM that can be purchased without any form of ID; no ID is collected at the point of purchase in Hong Kong, and registration is not required on arrival either.

spusu

Spusu

Spusu is a brand of the MVNO Mass Response which started its' service on the 2G/3G Drei network in 2015. It couldn't be listed as their SIM cards were available online only. In 2016 things changed: 4G/LTE was added and offline sales in some shops began.

Availability

Their starter pack (called "Spusu Wertkarte") is available online to be sent to an Austrian address and since 2017 in more than 1000 tobacconists (called Trafiken) countrywide. It's sold at 20 € including the same credit and can be registered there. It's also available as eSIM card for eligible phones.

If you don't use it for more than 1 year, 2 € per month will be charged and when the balance is depleted the SIM will be shut off.

Default rate

They don't sell any packages for voice, text or data, but offer a very cheap default rate:

spusu Wertkarte

  • for voice and texts 0.04 € per min/SMS
  • for data 0.009 € per MB (that's equal to low 4 € per GB, billing is in 1 kB increments) @ 4G+ up to the network's limit

EU roaming (temporarily roaming surcharges apply)

Austrian regulator RTR has granted permission for Spusu to temporarily charge roaming surcharges of 0.84c per MB. The only rate for EU roaming is, therefore, 0.84+0.4c per MB (= 12.40 € per GB).
