Despite all of the difficulties and restrictions during the corona pandemic, Switzerland continues to function – not least thanks to digitisation, which has already advanced significantly. At Swisscom, we have been doing everything we can for many months now to support our customers during this difficult time.
"COVID-19 brings many uncertainties with it. I am grateful and proud of what the Swisscom employees achieve under such difficult conditions."
CEO Urs Schaeppi
The coronavirus has given digitisation a real boost in our country. People work in their home offices, play music via video calls and get involved in online games. And even if it's difficult over a longer period of time: contact with friends and family can be maintained via telephone or video conferencing. This is how "closeness" can be experienced in a different way. Despite the global pandemic, the economy and society continue to function – which is also thanks to the powerful infrastructure of Swisscom.
Our greatest concern is the protection of our employees, customers and partners. At the same time, we are doing everything we can to ensure our customers can easily take advantage of the opportunities offered by the networked world. We are monitoring the situation carefully and will implement any other measures necessary to protect our employees, customers and partners.
What we pay attention to:
More bandwidth or data volume for over 1 million customers
Roaming charges were waived for over 70,000 customers stranded abroad
Support with the installation and use of smartphones and apps for over 5000 older people.
