Company Overview

T-Mobile Austria is the second largest Austrian mobile operator and is a 100% owned subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom AG. Founded in 1996 as Ö-Call and later known as max.mobil, the company underwent a complete takeover by T-Mobile in 2000 to become T-Mobile Austria on 18 April 2002.

T-Mobile provides 97 per cent of the Austrian population with voice services over 2G 900 and 1800 MHz bands, 94 per cent of all Austrians with mobile broadband via 3G on B1 (2100 MHz). 3G UMTS B8 (900 MHz) has also been launched. The company launched its 4G LTE service in 2010 and now covers over 96% of the Austrian population using LTE B20 (800 MHz), B3 (1800 MHz), and B7 (2600 MHz) bands. The company is currently rolling out LTE-A to carrier aggregate the three LTE bands, advertising peak DL data rates of between 250 and 600 Mbps. The company is also trialling LTE Advanced Pro and has demonstrated peak DL data rates over 2 Gbps.

The company made a first for Austria when in November 2017 it launched the nation's first NB-IoT network over a 200 kHz B8 (900 MHz) channel, with a strong focus on smart city applications including parking, street lighting, waste disposal, and charging stations.

T-Mobile Austria 5G

In February 2018 T-Mobile announced the first 5G NR implementation, utilising a preliminary 5G standard to provide data rates over 2 Gbps in the city of Innsbruck. In the country's March 2019 5G spectrum auction, T-Mobile secured 110 MHz of 3.5 GHz spectrum, from 3690 to 3800 MHz. The company immediately announced that 25 sites would go live in March following the award procedure. True to its word, T-Mobile Austria launched its 5G network on 26 March 2019.
