There are three mobile operators in Austria:

  • A1
  • T-Mobile
  • 3 (= "Drei")

Orange and "3" merged in 2013 to one network and the brand Orange was dropped. In addition there are many resellers or MVNOs on all networks.

2G GSM is on 900 and 1800 MHz like in most of Europe. 3G UMTS is on 2100 MHz. 4G/LTE has been started on 2600 MHz in cities and 800 MHz on the countryside on A1 and 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz on 3 and T-Mobile.

Mobile coverage is excellent for a country with difficult topography and similar to Switzerland on a very high level. In 4G/LTE both A1 and 3 cover >98%, T-Mobile is slightly behind at 90% of the population. This survey follows the historical order mostly used in the country and is no ranking.

A prepaid SIM card is locally called "Wertkarte". This is a specific Austrian expression, not used in Germany. Data rates in Austria are among the lowest in Central Europe. Ironically, there are hardly any good EU roaming offers for prepaid: While data are sold domestic for as low as 0.1c per MB, EU roaming rates are still mostly around 6c/MB.

Online top-up vouchers are available for most networks at without surcharges. Note that if you would like to use your credit or debit card on this website, payments are only possible with Mastercard Securecode or Verified by Visa enabled cards.

Flink Logo copy

Flink based in Vienna offers rentable mobile WiFi hotspots for travellers in Austria to be delivered to any location and for use in Austria. Additionally, they offer a "worldwide" solution mentioned in the All Countries chapter.

Hotspot device Edit

They are currently using a Huawei E5756 with 3G HSDPA+ connection (no 4G/LTE), 3000 mAh battery, dimensions: 101.8 x 65.8 x 14.5 mm, weight: 150 g, TFT-LCD display and 802.11 b/g/n support. You can connect up to 10 devices to this hotspot. However, connection is shared between these devices, which may result in slower speeds. According to Huawei the maximum working time is 10 hours and maximum standby time is 60 hours (while WiFi is on). The hotspot is set to not turn off automatically, to ensure that your connection is not interrupted.

Rental Edit

You can book their hotspot online and have it delivered to your hotel or any private address in Austria (by 8am on your arrival day). Take it with you wherever you go in Austria or pick it up at one of these locations.

At the end of your rental period, you will need to return the hotspot in a prepaid envelope included in your order and place it into any postbox in Austria.

The hotspot can be rented from 24 hours up to 31 days. Hotspots that are collected from a pick-up location must be returned to the same pick-up location.

Prices Edit

They now charge 8 € per rental day. This excludes delivery fees of 5.70 € within Austria and return charges of 6.50 €. Both surcharges can be skipped by picking it up and giving it back at their locations. There is a deposit of 130 € per device throughout the rental period. This is not charged or withheld, but they have the right to to recharge your payment method in case of loss or severe damage.

While they advertise "unlimited data usage", they actually throttle "high usage" (which is defined as more than 500 MB within one calendar day (from midnight to midnight)) to 2G speed. This data speed limit will be automatically reset at 0:00h of the next day.
