Facts & figures


CEO Urs Schaeppi

Swisscom achieved its targets in 2019, and once again turned in a solid performance in a challenging market environment. We were successful with new products such as inOne mobile with unlimited roaming in Europe, as well as the new Swisscom Box with voice assistants to control the TV and Smart Home. As the winner of all relevant network tests and with a nationwide 5G coverage of 90%, we are the undisputed technology leader. By the end of 2025, we want to double the level of FTTH coverage compared to today. We have been able to maintain our strong position as a full service provider in the corporate business. Demand for cloud, security and IoT solutions continues to grow. Fastweb grows further in all segments. The biggest challenges in 2020 will remain market saturation, fierce competition and high pressure on prices.

β€œIn 2020, we will consistently focus on attractive products, the quality of our networks and outstanding customer service.”
