Swisscom Fixnet customers support the World Wildlife Fund by choosing online billing

21 June 2004

Swisscom Fixnet customers who sign up for online, paper-free billing help to support the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Smaragd project for the protection of the natural habitats of flora and fauna.

Electronic billing saves paper and energy. As a result, Swisscom Fixnet has decided to donate the sum of CHF 5 to the WWF for each customer who signs up for online, paper-free billing.

Fixed-network billing online provides full cost transparency by enabling customers to view their detailed billing statement and call charge data for the current month online anytime. In addition, the call charge data are updated three times daily. Electronic payment options offer further benefits: already today, with "fixed-network bill online" and "yellowbill" from PostFinance, customers can pay their Swisscom fixed-network bills online via a Yellownet account, with three mouseclicks.

A new and equally simple payment method now open to customers is via their bank account using "fixed-network bill online" and "PayNet".

By launching this donation campaign, Swisscom Fixnet is underlining its responsibility towards the environment. Energy-saving projects and the disposal of terminal equipment and network components in an environmentally friendly manner have long been standard practice at Swisscom Fixnet. A more recent commitment is the purchase of "naturemade star" eco energy.
