Swisscom Mobile extends the range of Value Cards for use with Public Wireless LAN

05 September 2003

Swisscom Mobile is now offering two further Value Cards for prepaid use of Public Wireless LAN (PWLAN) in Switzerland. PWLAN customers can purchase cards for CHF 9 giving them 30 minutes of high-speed Internet access. The weekly card (seven days access for CHF 198) is particularly attractive for business customers from abroad. The cards complement the existing range of two-hour and 24-hour cards for CHF 19 and CHF 48 respectively. Value Cards are available at Swisscom Shops or at hotspots.

Hotspots are busy locations such as airports and conference centres offering high-speed wireless Internet access - up to 40 times faster than an ISDN connection from a desktop PC. Swisscom Mobile currently operates over 300 hotspots throughout Switzerland.
