Austria, officially the Republic of Austria, is a federal republic. It is a landlocked country in Central Europe with a population of approximately 8.5 million people. It is bordered by the Czech Republic and Germany to the north, Switzerland and Liechtenstein to the west, Hungary and Slovakia to the east, and Slovenia and Italy to the south. Its 83,879 square kilometer territory is highly mountainous, lying within the Alps. The capital and largest city is Vienna, with a population exceeding 1.7 million people. Austrian German is the country’s official language, and the majority of the population speak local Bavarian dialects of German as their native language. Other local official languages are Hungarian, , Slovene, and Burgenland Croatian.
Today, Austria is one of the richest countries in the world. The country has developed a high standard of living and has a well-developed social market economy. Tourism accounts for around 9% of the Austrian gross domestic product. In international tourist arrivals, the country ranked 12th with 20.8 million tourists.
Austria also has a highly developed and efficient telephone network. Fibre-optic coverage is extensive, and full range of telephone and Internet services are available via the network. The mobile phone market is extremely competitive, and boasts some of the lowest rates in Europe. Also, due to the mountains, flat lands, and lakes, many providers use the region as a “testing range” for new services.
Call Centers and Voice Broadcasting operations thrive under these conditions. However, it is important to keep in mind that mobile number portability allows users to retain their mobile phone numbers when switching between network operators. Meaning that the original area codes allocated to each operator can no longer be used to determine the network with which a subscriber is registered.
