9 Aug 2019

The Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) has announced the country’s new national broadband strategy ‘Breitbandstrategie 2030’, following a public consultation launched in February 2019. The strategy aims for nationwide access to gigabit-capable broadband services by the end of 2030, which will be achieved through five interim phases. These goals are: nationwide access to 100Mbps speeds by the end of 2020; the launch of 5G in all federal state capitals by end-2020; Austria becoming a ‘5G pilot country’ by early 2021; coverage of 5G along all main traffic routes by end-2023; and nationwide coverage of 5G by the end of 2025.
