On 24 December 2001 all local and long-distance calls from the fixed network will be free of charge. The offer will not cover calls from mobile phones (NATEL) and public payphones, calls using phone cards, calls from the fixed network to Swiss mobile networks, international calls and calls to Business Numbers (e.g. 08xx/09xx) and short numbers.

This free "telephone day" will mark the end of a special Christmas campaign offered by Swisscom Fixnet. Throughout the month of December Swisscom customers have benefited from a plethora of special offers.
Swisscom Mobile customers will benefit a day later, on 25 December, from a free SMS offer: they will be able to send any number of SMS messages free of charge from their mobile phone. The offer will not cover SMS Services (NATEL InfoService) or SMS messages from abroad.
