The next mobile generation is here.

Swisscom is going to roll out the latest mobile generation, 5G in Switzerland already this year. Not only is 5G much faster, it also responds in real time, enabling applications that we can only dream of now. Together with our partners, Ericsson and EPF Lausanne, we have been paving the way for the 5G rollout since 2016 with our partner programme "5G for Switzerland".


5G was the main talking point at the industry’s major get-together, the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of February.
