RTR publishes intra-EU call, SMS rate caps for Austrian consumers

Wednesday 15 May 2019 | 17:07 CET | News
Austrian regulator RTR has announced price caps on intra-EU telephone calls and texts from 15 May. The maximum call rate is EUR 0.228 per call minute and EUR 0.072 per SMS, each including Austrian VAT. Once an agreement has been effective, the cap will also apply to connections and messages to the European Economic Area (EU plus Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway). In most cases, consumers will automatically benefit from this scheme. For companies, the upper limits do not apply.
