Press release

Swisscom customers can now enjoy an hourly rate for calls to any network

Berne, 22 March 2011

Swisscom is launching new mobile subscriptions on 1 April 2011: Swisscom Liberty customers will be able to make calls to third-party mobile networks at a standard hourly rate, including SMS messaging, and can rely on a cost limit for mobile browsing. Swisscom is sharply reducing prices for calls to third-party mobile networks in response to reduced mobile termination charges.

The Liberty subscriptions valid from 1 April 2011 are a follow-up to the successful NATEL mobile subscriptions which Swisscom launched for under 26-year-olds last February. Now Swisscom customers can benefit from subscriptions with included SMS messaging and an attractive, standard hourly rate for calls to third-party networks. Customers can profit in particular from significantly lower prices for longer calls. The price reduction is Swisscom's response to the reduction in mobile termination chargesthat came into effect last October. Once the data transfer volume included in the subscription is used up, a cost limit of CHF 5 per day allows customers to keep the costs of mobile Internet usage under control. The new subscriptions replace the current Liberty subscriptions, but existing Liberty subscriptions remain valid. The range of prepaid offerings remains unchanged, and also includes a cost limit of CHF 5 per day for mobile Internet browsing.

 

Something for everyone: from first-time users to frequent users

For CHF 29 per month, NATEL liberty primo customers can make calls in the Swisscom network at an hourly rate of CHF 0.70 and calls to other providers' networks for CHF 0.90 per hour. The subscription also includes a data allowance of 100 MB as well as 50 SMS messages. So it is an ideal starter subscription for mobile surfing and for everyone who likes to make long phone calls.

For CHF 45 per month, NATEL liberty medio customers enjoy a data allowance of 250 MB and can telephone at an hourly rate of CHF 0.50 in the Swisscom network or CHF 0.70 to third-party networks. This subscription also includes 100 SMS messages.

NATEL liberty largo - the subscription for customers who surf and telephone frequently - includes a data allowance of 1 GB as well as 250 SMS messages for CHF 75 per month. Customers with this subscription can telephone at an hourly rate of only CHF 0.30 in the Swisscom network and CHF 0.50 to third-party networks.

The NATEL liberty start and NATEL liberty standard subscriptions are suitable for customers who rarely use mobile Internet surfing. This subscription offers a cheaper data tariff of only CHF 2.50 per MB and a cost limit of CHF 5 per day. Customers can also benefit from the new hourly rates for calls to third-party networks, including SMS messaging.
