Press release

Free activation of ISDN accesses

25 September 2003

There is normally a one-off charge of CHF 43 for the activation of an ISDN access. During the month of October, this charge will be waived both for new ISDN accesses as well as for switching from an analogue to an ISDN access. Customers will therefore only pay the monthly charge of CHF 43 for their MultiLINE ISDN access. Excluded from this offer are the porting of a MultiLINE ISDN access when moving, the activation of several ISDN accesses and the activation of temporary ISDN accesses.

The MultiLINE ISDN fixed-line access offers customers the benefit of two separate lines and at least three phone numbers. This makes it possible to make phone calls and at the same time surf the Internet, send a fax or make a second call. Services such as "Call Forwarding" and "Completion of Calls to Busy Subscriber" are included in the monthly charge. The "Caller Identification" function displays the caller's number.

Swisscom Fixnet's MultiLINE ISDN starter kit enables customers to install their own ISDN access easily and cost-effectively.

There were 925'000 active ISDN accesses in Switzerland in mid-2003.

Further information on this offer may be found at or by calling freephone 0800 800 800.
