The mobile network

Unique coverage, excellent voice quality and top surfing speeds make the multiple-award winning mobile network the best network in Switzerland.

Unique coverage

Excellent connection quality with unique coverage across Switzerland.

Whether in the city or country, connections are quick and secure. The mobile network from Swisscom already covers all of Switzerland with EDGE (2.5G) and reaches more than 93% of the population with HSPA. The network is augmented by more than 1,900 WLAN hotspots. A third 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).
