Unique coverage, excellent voice quality and top surfing speeds make the multiple-award winning mobile network the best network in Switzerland.
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.
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.
Its topography and rigorous statutory legislation present operators of mobile networks in Switzerland with particular challenges. So with continued huge success we settle for a mix of three different mobile generations, favouring the latest technology developments to give our customers the best possible network.
