Fixed-line telephony now with voice portal

08 November 2005

Fixed-line telephony is set to become even more attractive. Following the rollout of SMS messaging on the fixed network, Swisscom Fixnet will now launch its new voice portal on 15 November 2005. The new voice-activated service will provide subscribers with easy access to supplementary services, news and entertainment.

New-generation handsets are recommended for subscribers wishing to use the voice portal. Connection setup is via a special direct key. Voice commands are used to access the menu and to call up supplementary services (for example, call deviation, three-party conference, Combox, call waiting), news and entertainment (weather, sports, the latest news, horoscope). The new-generation handsets also allow problem-free receipt and transmission of SMS messages.

Voice portal access, free  SMS messaging and an attractive handset at a special price are combined in the 3set, which will be offered from CHF 2.90 per month. Depending on the subscription chosen, free minutes are included on the voice portal as well as a limited number of free SMS messages. Customers purchasing the 3set will save up to CHF 70 on a new-generation handset.
