Unique coverage

Excellent connection quality with unique coverage across Switzerland.

Whether in the city or country, connections are quick and secure. Swisscom's mobile network already covers all of Switzerland with EDGE (2G), reaches over 98% of the population with HSPA and offers 94% ultra-fast mobile Internet over 4G/LTE. The network is augmented by more than 2,100 WLAN hotspots. Three quarters of the base stations are already connected with fibre optics.

Excellent voice quality

HD Voice (high-definition voice) is the new audio technology that noticeably improves speech reproduction quality on the smartphone and largely eliminates background noise, particularly in a loud environment (such as train or street).

Top speed for mobile surfing

Swisscom is the first provider to extend its network so that it can offer
customers in busy areas 4G+ (also known as LTE advanced) with speeds of up to 300 Mbit/s. This is a maximum value under optimum conditions, actual speeds depend on the respective location, the number of users in the mobile cell and the end device. Swisscom already enables 94% of the Swiss population to surf in the Internet with 4G/LTE. LTE (Long Term Evolution) is the fourth generation (4G) of mobile phone technology, enabling mobile data and voice communication with transmission speeds of up to 150 Mbit/s.
