Berne, 12 January 2016
The use of prepaid offers has changed in recent years. Whereas in the past, most customers bought a prepaid card to make the occasional call, send a text message or simply be contactable, people now also use them to surf the web several times a day on their mobile phone or tablet. That’s why Swisscom is adapting its prepaid offers and increasing bandwidth. As a result, frequent surfers with 200 MB, 600 MB or 1.2 GB data packages will from 26 January be able to surf at speeds of up 10 Mbps – or about 30% faster than before – for the same price. But even those customers who go online infrequently at the standard rate of CHF 2 per day can now enjoy twice the speed (max. 2 Mbps) and even greater monthly data volumes.
Prepaid customers want a simple tariff and cost security. For this reason, phone calls will now be charged at an affordable and easy-to-understand per-minute rate. At just CHF 0.29 per minute, Swisscom customers throughout Switzerland will benefit from a competitive prepaid tariff. They can also rein in their costs because they will only pay for the first three minutes of each call lasting up to two hours. What’s more, they can easily check their credit balance, recharge their card and order a suitable data package on the Swisscom Cockpit.
