 Decision of TKK (15.06.2009) 

On 15 June 2009 the Telekom-Control-Commission (TKK) issued four decisions regarding analyses of the mobile termination markets of mobilkom austria AG (mobilkom), T-Mobile Austria GmbH (T-Mobile), Orange Austria Telecommunication GmbH (Orange) as well as of Hutchison 3G Austria GmbH (Hutchison). These decisions stat that each one of the aforementioned mobile network operators has significant  market power in terms of §§ 35, 37 TKG (Telecommunications Act) 2003. As a reaction to the problems existing on the individual mobile termination markets in the absence of regulation, TKK imposed on the mobile communications operators specific obligations of non-discrimination (in a number of different forms), regarding termination, publication of a reference offer of mobile termination services, as well as an obligation to operate on a cost-oriented basis. With a view to implementing the cost-orientation obligation, specific rates for mobile termination services have been fixed for the four mobile network operators (fees in eurocents).
