Swisscom welcomes the decision of the people and the Council of States. The No vote is a vote in favour of modern public services, based first and foremost on intense competition and only secondarily on state regulation. It is precisely this competition that has led to Switzerland’s network infrastructure being among the best in the world. The rejection of the initiative allows Swisscom to continue to compete successfully against other domestic and international companies.
Swisscom will take up the concerns of its customers expressed during the referendum campaign to further improve its services and continue to offer Switzerland the best possible public service.
