Press release

Massive price cut for Mobile Unlimited

Berne, 15 April 2009

From 27 April 2009, Swisscom is offering a new data subscription for mobile working and surfing the Internet on your laptop. The new NATEL® data flat Mobile Unlimited subscription costs CHF 59 per month and includes unlimited data traffic on the Swisscom network. The subscription replaces the two Mobile Unlimited subscriptions with included volumes of 1.5 GB and 5 GB. Existing customers automatically benefit from NATEL® data flat.

Mobile Unlimited customers can now transfer unlimited volumes of data and surf the Internet when they're on the move for CHF 59 per month. The new data subscription is aimed at regular and frequent users and allows complete cost control. It replaces the two data subscriptions NATEL® data 1.5 GB (CHF 59 per month) and NATEL® data 5 GB (CHF 79 per month). The transmission speed will only be limited if data consumption exceeds 10 GB, so that all customers can benefit from good service and network quality. Usage outside Switzerland will incur roaming charges. Existing customers will be automatically switched to the new flat tariff on 27 April 2009. New customers benefit from an introductory offer: for private customers, NATEL® data flat is free for the first two months (offer applies until 30 June 2009).


New Unlimited USB Modem

On 16 April 2009, the Mobile Unlimited product range will be extended to include a new USB model with an integrated 2GB memory card. The modem enables a transmission speed of up to 7.2 Mbps for downloading data and 1.4 Mbps for uploading data. With the Mobile Unlimited USB modems, PC cards and solutions integrated in laptops, data can be transferred easily and quickly when you're on the move.


More than 250 000 Mobile Unlimited customers

Working and surfing when you're on the move is extremely practical with Mobile Unlimited. Thanks to the excellent Swisscom network and the HSPA data turbo, customers can surf the Net at a speed of up to 7.2 Mbps, while in some areas it's even possible to reach a speed of 14.4 Mbps. Swisscom offers HSPA technology on its entire UMTS network and thereby reaches around 93.4 % of the population. By combining GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSPA and WLAN, Swisscom offers a mobile broadband Internet technology mix that is not only unique in Switzerland, but also leads the way in Europe.
