Telecommunications Market in Austria
Until 1 May 1996, the Austrian telecommunications service was part of the federal administration; it belonged to the Postal and Telegraph Administration (PTV), which was under the authority of the Ministry for Transport. On 1 May 1996, the PTV was separated from the federal administration and converted into a joint-stock company (AG) under the name Post und Telekom Austria AG.
Austria and the European Union
The telecommunications industry is playing an increasingly crucial role in economic and social development. The availability of a good and affordable telecommunications infrastructure and, associated with this, a widening range of telecommunications services and applications at internationally competitive prices are decisive corporate location factors.
