Swisscom is now offering all customers who want to enjoy the maximum available speed and the best surfing experience on the Swisscom mobile network a new tariff for mobile surfing. NATEL data premium enables customers to enjoy fast surfing and optimised data transmission from their laptop. The new CHF 85 per month tariff includes a data allowance of 5GB. With the new HSPA+-compatible USB modem E182E from Hauwei, NATEL data premium customers can use the mobile Internet exclusively at speeds of up to 21 Mbps. All other customers will also benefit: in future they will be able to surf on the entire Swisscom HSPA network at speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps (previously 3.6 Mbps). As with a DSL line on the fixed network, with the introduction of NATEL data premium, Swisscom is now offering tariff plans for the mobile network for the first time which provide customers with various bandwidths.
Swisscom invests hundreds of millions of francs every year in its mobile infrastructure and is continually expanding its network. With HSPA+, speeds of up to 21 Mbps are already a reality. Swisscom's HSPA network now covers more than 92 per cent of the population and offers customers throughout Switzerland the best and most reliable connection, as proven in an extensive network test carried out by connect magazine (Issue 11/2010).
Swisscom NATEL easy customers can now benefit from attractive data packages and combine them with their prepaid tariff. The 100 MB data package for CHF 10 is particularly suited to smartphone users who want occasional Internet access via the mobile network to check e-mails or access apps while on the move, for example. The 300 MB package for CHF 19 and the 2 GB package for CHF 39 are ideal for prepaid customers who frequently surf the Internet on the mobile network. All data packages are valid for 30 days throughout Switzerland. Afterwards, or when the data allowance has been used up, customers can purchase a new package of their choice at any time.
