Press release

Cheaper international calls

27 January 2004

Swisscom Fixnet is extending its range of offerings for international calls. In addition to the existing Weekend call International, Evening call International will be introduced with effect from 1 February 2004, offering customers 1 hour of international calling for CHF 3.

The new Evening call International allows customers to make calls to the following countries for one full hour every evening between 19.00 and 24.00 hours for only CHF 3: Austria, France, Germany, Italy (including the Vatican), Liechtenstein, the UK, Canada and the USA. Swisscom Fixnet customers are already able to make calls to the above countries for one hour every weekend and on public holidays at a cost of only CHF 3. Only the first 25 minutes in the evening and the first 30 minutes at weekends are charged (i.e. the rest of the hour is free).

The offering applies to calls from the fixed network to another fixed network but is not valid for calls from a mobile phone or payphone, calls from the fixed network to mobile networks abroad, or calls to short numbers.

Evening call International supplements the broad range of offerings already available from Swisscom Fixnet. With Evening and Weekend call National, customers can telephone throughout Switzerland for one hour in the evening and at weekends for only CHF 1. And with Happy Weekend, customers under 27 years of age can telephone from their fixed network line free of charge throughout the weekend.
