It’s nothing new: the Swisscom mobile network is Switzerland’s best network. Alongside the highspeed fibre-optic network, it is essential for Switzerland. More than fast. There for us all. Sustainable and secure. Ready for anything. That’s what we work on. Every day.
Every year, Swisscom invests around 1.6 billion Swiss francs in network expansion. We update our network in more than 300 communities every year. By 2021, Swisscom aims to modernise the broadband fixed network in all Swiss communities. The mobile network is being continuously optimised at the same time. This investment provides more than 100,000 jobs in Switzerland.
We are expanding our network in the city, in the countryside and everywhere in between to give every individual and company in Switzerland the same opportunities. With the latest, best and most efficient technologies. Like 5G.
With a lot of people – and their smartphones – in a confined space, the network can reach its limits. Each day, more than 10,000 emergency calls are prioritised on the Swisscom network, to make sure that the police and rescue services can always be reached. A part of the new 5G network will be permanently reserved for the emergency service organisations, guaranteeing network availability at all times.
Streaming, surfing, chatting – all our online activities need power. In increasing amounts. Which makes it all the more important that our energy comes from renewable sources. At Swisscom, we’ve been using 100% renewable energy for over ten years. In other areas, too, our efforts to ensure the sustainable use of valuable resources are bearing fruit.
As part of our “Schools on the Net” project we offer all schools in Switzerland a free Internet connection and various services. We hold media courses and provide educational material to raise awareness about the responsible use of digital media.
