On 18 October 2000, Swisscom announced its intention of outsourcing the construction and maintenance of the telecom fixed network sector. The sector with its 758 employees is not one of Swisscom´s core activities. Intensive negotiations have been conducted with various potential partners in the intervening months.
The decision now taken will enable Swisscom´s future subsidiary to develop a solid economic foundation - a decisive prerequisite for its future business success.
