The Austrian mobile market continued to grow, for a fifth consecutive quarter in Q2, reaching more than 14 million Sims at the end of June, after winning almost 180,000 during the quarter. The growth was driven by prepaid users, up by 3.5 percent during the quarter to more than 4.6 million Sims, according to Telecompaper's semi-annual Austrian Mobile Operators' update. The number of postpaid Sims grew by just 0.2 percent in the period.
