Press release

Swisscom introduces the first mobile flat-rate offers for calls to all Swiss networks

Berne, 07 August 2009

On 17 August 2009, Swisscom will become the first Swiss mobile provider to offer flat-rate tariffs valid on all networks across Switzerland. NATEL® Easy BeFree allows customers the freedom to call, surf or text without restrictions at the prepaid daily tariff. Swisscom will also offer attractive packages for subscription customers (postpaid): NATEL® BeFree for residential customers and NATEL® Business One for business customers.

As a first on the Swiss mobile market, on 17 August 2009, Swisscom will launch flat-rate tariffs valid for calls to all Swiss networks. This will allow customers control over the costs of making calls and sending SMS and MMS messages, as well as mobile Internet usage.

NATEL® Easy BeFree is aimed at customers who want the freedom to call, surf or text without being tied to a contract. The attractive pre-paid offer allows customers to communicate at daily flat rates of CHF 2 for SMS and MMS messages, CHF 3 for telephone calls and CHF 4 for data traffic. The prepaid daily tariff is only applied if the service in question is actually used.

Our post-paid offer, NATEL® BeFree, gives heavy users and surfers the freedom to communicate at a flat rate. The monthly subscription charge of CHF 169 includes both mobile calls to all Swiss mobile networks and calls to the fixed network. It also gives unlimited freedom to send SMS and MMS messages and mobile data traffic within Switzerland.

The new offerings complement Swisscom's successful NATEL® liberty product range. Swisscom customers who wish to take advantage of the new flat-rate tariffs can register straight away by sending a free SMS with the text "EASYBEFREE" for prepaid customers or "BEFREE" for postpaid customers to 444 or by registering via the hotline 0800 800 800.

 

For business customers: unrestricted calls and data exchange with NATEL® Business One

Swisscom offers business customers the new NATEL® Business One subscription for a monthly basic fee of CHF 169. The subscription covers all calls to Swiss mobile networks and the fixed network, mobile data traffic and unlimited SMS and MMS messages within Switzerland. Business customers will also benefit from attractive special prices when calling abroad (prices shown in the table below).


NATEL® Business One is aimed primarily at business customers who call extensively and exchange data and who are seeking cost control. The subscription complements Swisscom's current NATEL® Business product range. Business customers who would like more details should contact their customer adviser or register on the business hotline 0800 055 055.

To ensure that all customers benefit from good service and network quality, transmission speed will be limited on NATEL®BeFree and NATEL® Business One if data consumption exceeds 2 GB per month. Usage outside Switzerland will incur roaming charges.
