The Mobile Phone Networks in Austria Compared

All three Austrian providers have improved compared with the previous year–and this already high level. Who makes the race in Austria?

Since the connect network test takes into account also the Alpine countries, the Austrian network operators deliver an annual head-to-head at the highest level. Compared with the candidates from the other countries in the DACH region, the Austrian provider are stable in the top flight. No network operator from the Alpine Republic has cut off ever worse than “Good”.

Of course good Austrian customers, because they have the choice between three very good suppliers, and this at considerably lower prices than about in Germany. Also in the LTE development the Austrian the majority with 4G-Mobilfunk operators and three well because – in autumn 2016 A1 provide T-Mobile Austria, already and can focus on to fill the few remaining gaps. All the tenser, we awaited the results of tests conducted by P3 in 11 Austrian cities, around 2700 kilometres connecting roads and the railways.

Voice connections

In the assessment of voice calls, A1 continues at the top. Especially when the test calls carried from car to car, the so-called drive tests, these providers in major cities performs better something else than its competitors. At the time of the test, A1 was also the only Austrian network operator who already supported calls by VoLTE. This could have helped in the city centres well supplied with LTE – however the high score in this discipline would have been unreachable, if A1 not in conventional mobile radio telephony had delivered excellence.

All three candidates are the measurements of the tester, who examined walk to inner city areas and public buildings (the walking tests), largely on the same high level. Easily the nose front has first of year winner three language connections in rural areas, in small towns and on roads. But again, the differences between the three networks are only slight.

Data connections

Very similar results also when looking at the tests of data connections. Here A1 achieved a small ledge drive testing in major cities, followed closely by three. When called from Web pages in this test scenario, unit T-Mobile Austria slightly behind – supplies but still peaks, which could bring in some other countries the test victory. Overall the success rates readable in the adjacent tables, response times, and data rates are candidates dream values for all three.

In the inner-city walking tests three with wafer-thin protrusion on the top sits, but here, too, the two other providers with only a few points follow distance. As already in the Sprachtestserzielt a slightly better result than his two competitors – here too the slugfest at a high level is three in small towns and on roads instead.
