On October 25th, 2006 an amendment to the Austrian „Universaldienstverordnung“ became effective: Since that time the Telekom Austria AG is no longer bound to afford unobstructed access from (public) payphones to 0800, 0810 and 0820 numbers.
Presently the further proceeding isn´t known (depends on Telekom Austria AG). Probably in the future connections from payphones to 0800, 0801 and 0820 numbers will be charged additionally.
We will keep you informed.
