More and more operators in Austria restrict roaming services or do not offer them at all, according to a survey by the Austrian Chamber of Labour (AK), covering 194 mobile tariffs from 25 providers. This trend applies mainly for pre-paid offers. Since 15 June 2017, 'roam like at home' has applied in EU countries, but about 15 percent (29 of the 194 tariffs) apply roaming restrictions. With twelve tariffs, roaming is not possible at all. With seventeen tariffs, only data roaming is not possible.
