Austria Sim-only mobile prices falling as monthly bundles grow - study

Sunday 5 May 2019 | 12:26 CET | News
For the Sim-only plans on offer in Q1, the median prices at Austrian operators were below the median of the 16 countries surveyed by Telecompaper in its EU Benchmark report. For the biggest type of plan, with at least 1,000 minutes and 10 GB per month, Austria moved up to the fourth cheapest in Europe. The median price for such a plan in Austria dropped to EUR 20 per month from EUR 48 a year earlier, thanks to a big fall in prices at market leader A1 as well as new, cheaper plans from Drei and Telering.
