Ex-post analysis of the merger between H3G Austria and Orange Austria

This paper analyses the price developments of mobile telephony (voice and data) services in Austria in the period from 2011 to 2014 compared to international price trends. Econometric methods are used in order to estimate whether the merger of Hutchison (H3G) and Orange Austria (Orange), which took place at the beginning of 2013, had a significant impact on prices (“merger effect”) before the merger commitments (MVNO entries) became effective.

The report issued by the Austrian Federal Competition Authority (BWB) regarding price developments in the mobile market is available on BWB's website.
