Xtra - the new product line for NATEL® customers under 26

30 March 2006

Xtra is a new and great value product line for people under 26, enabling youngsters to keep their budgets under control and take advantage of a quality product at the same time. To get this product line off to a fitting start, Swisscom Mobile is launching a range of new charges called Xtra-liberty on 3 April 2006.

The Xtra-liberty product is available in three versions: as NATEL® basic xtra-liberty, for a basic fee of CHF 12 per month, as NATEL® swiss xtra-liberty, designed for those who make lots of calls for a basic fee of CHF 25 per month, and as a prepaid product, NATEL® easy xtra-liberty .

The Xtra-liberty rates from Swisscom Mobile mark the launch of a new product line for younger customers up to the age of 26. Apart from the special conditions for voice telephony, they also benefit from free SMS and MMS messages (over the internet) or discount SMS rates (via mobile phones). With Xtra, new mobile phones can be obtained at particularly attractive prices. In future, Xtra will be enhanced with a wide range of additional services.


Make free night time calls with basic and swiss xtra-liberty

No matter which Xtra-liberty option you choose, SMS messages cost just 15 cents each. In addition, and depending on the Xtra-liberty option, customers also benefit from between 25 and 100 SMS messages per month included. Between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., customers with a subscription can call for free to the Swiss fixed network and the Swisscom Mobile network. As is the case with the Liberty family, Xtra-liberty calls are billed by the hour. If you are under 26 and you are already a Swisscom Mobile customer, you can switch to Xtra-liberty at no charge. New customers who would like to benefit from Xtra-liberty are also very welcome.
