Now throughout 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.

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.
I can already game, surf and stream music and videos wherever I want. So why do I need 5G?
New ideas are currently being gathered to determine precisely how 5G will change collaboration. What we do know is that productive work in temporary or remote locations is already possible thanks to 5G.
We are already beginning to understand how 5G will open up completely new forms of entertainment. Downloading an entire season of your favourite series in seconds is a great way to start.
Whether 5G will enable us to fly around in autonomous drones one day remains to be seen. As a first step, 5G is helping to improve traffic flow and reduce traffic jams.
Will 5G enable remote-controlled robots to revolutionise the building sites of tomorrow? Possibly. 5G fixed wireless access is already contributing to increased efficiency on building sites.

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.
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.
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: 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.
5G enables decentralised, mobile-connected clouds for applications that provide the required resources with greater agility and flexibility.
5G can provide individual applications with flexible network capacities, as might be required by the emergency services during a major incident for example.

Wir werden oft gefragt, wozu es die nächste Mobilfunkgeneration 5G braucht. Die Baubranche zeigte es an der #Swissbau in der Innovationshalle – und wartet auf den raschen Ausbau des 5G-Netzes.
The 5G Campus Solution enables Swisscom to provide companies with the opportunity to digitise the entire process chain in the shortest possible time. This provides manufacturing companies with significant efficiency gains and potential for cost savings.
