5G for Switzerland

Now throughout Switzerland.

90% coverage

The best network.
5G across Switzerland.

The best network is now even better. 5G is faster, more reliable and more powerful than ever before. It is opening up new opportunities – for our communities, for the economy and for Switzerland as a whole.

Mobile network expansion

To ensure we always offer the best network in all regions, we are constantly expanding capacity and coverage in the cities, in the countryside and everywhere in between. Technology neutral with 3G, 4G and 5G. And convergent with our fibre-optic network. Find out more from Swisscom Trainer Marcel in the video.

The benefits of 5G

 

Surfing speed

5G will make surfing at up to 2 Gbit/s possible initially, with speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s following soon. That’s between two and ten times faster than current upload and download speeds on the fibre optic network.

 

Response time

Thanks to 5G, the response time will fall from the current 25 to 35 milliseconds to just a few milliseconds, providing virtually delay-free communication in real time.

 

Capacity

5G enables far more devices to transfer far more data simultaneously. This is important because we now send as much data in half a day as we used to send in a week five years ago.

 

Efficiency

The network is more sustainable with 5G: it only takes 0.2 watts to transfer one single megabyte of data. With 2G it is 5,400 watts. So, it's a change worth making.

 

Decentralised cloud

5G enables decentralised, mobile-connected clouds for applications that provide the required resources with greater agility and flexibility.

 

Network slicing

5G can provide individual applications with flexible network capacities, as might be required by the emergency services during a major incident for example.
