I’m proud of our strong financial result and solid market performance in the first half of 2023. Swisscom has delivered convincing performance across the board. Customer satisfaction is high. Although we have been unable to escape the current inflation unscathed, we are using efficient cost management to cushion the blow of rising costs. This allows us to guarantee that our blue subscription prices will remain unchanged until the end of 2024. «World Finance» magazine has rated Swisscom the world’s most sustainable telecommunications company for the third consecutive time. Our subsidiary Fastweb in Italy can also look back on a successful first half of the year.
