Austrian govt coalition agrees on reform of Telecommunications Act

Thursday 23 September 2021 | 09:44 CET | News
The Austrian government coalition has agreed to the first reform of the Telecommunications Act (TKG) in eighteen years, Der Standard reports. One key point of the reform is to reinforce consumer protection, with a short summary of contracts becoming mandatory in future, to make it easier for the consumer to compare offerings. In addition, the new TKG would extend the right to terminate a contract in the event of changes by the provider to three months.
