3 Austria, UPC sign MVNO agreement

Tuesday 9 October 2012 | 11:14 CET | News
Hutchison 3G Austria (3 Austria) has signed an MVNO agreement with cable operator UPC Austria. 3 Austria CEO Jan Trionow said the signing of the deal was a great step forwards for both companies and for consumers, as customers will have a wider choice of mobile provider and benefit from increased competition in the Austrian mobile market. The agreement is based on the MVNO remedy offer made to the EU as part of the investigation into 3 Austria's proposed takeover of Orange Austria. The MVNO agreement will only come into effect once the takeover has been completed.
