The best network
in Switzerland, ready for 5G.

With 5G, the mobile network is now 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.

Swisscom Academy Trainer Marcel explains network expansion

Swisscom is constantly expanding the capacity and coverage of its network in cities, in the countryside and everywhere in between. Technology-neutral with 3G, 4G and 5G and convergent with our fibre-optic network.

Better with 5G:
six benefits of 5G.

Internet speed

5G is between two and ten times faster than the current download speed on 4G. 5G will make download speeds up to 2 Gbit/s possible initially, with speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s following soon.

Response time

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


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.


The network is more sustainable with 5G. Transferring 1 MB of data only requires 0.2 watts instead of 5400 watts with 2G.

Decentralised cloud

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

Guaranteed network capacities

5G enables guaranteed network capacity (network slicing), for example, for emergency services in the event of a major incident.
