The best network is now even better. 5G is faster, more reliable and more powerful than ever before. It is opening up new opportunities – for our communities, for the economy and for Switzerland as a whole.
Winner of the connect mobile network test 3/2019
We are bringing 5G to the city, the country and everywhere in between. Available across Switzerland by the end of the year.

All these places have partial 5G provision that is being continuously expanded.
5G will make surfing at up to 2 Gbit/s possible initially, with speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s following soon. That’s between two and ten times faster than current upload and download speeds on the fibre optic network.
Thanks to 5G, the response time will fall from the current 25 to 35 milliseconds to just a few milliseconds, providing virtually delay-free communication in real time.
5G enables far more devices to transfer far more data simultaneously. This is important because we now send as much data in half a day as we used to send in a week five years ago.
The network is more sustainable with 5G: it only takes 0.2 watts to transfer one single megabyte of data. With 2G it is 5,400 watts. So, it's a change worth making.
5G enables decentralised, mobile-connected clouds for applications that provide the required resources with greater agility and flexibility.
5G can provide individual applications with flexible network capacities, as might be required by the emergency services during a major incident for example.
The 5G Campus Solution enables Swisscom to provide companies with the opportunity to digitise the entire process chain in the shortest possible time. This provides manufacturing companies with significant efficiency gains and potential for cost savings.
