Swisscom has the best network in Switzerland. That’s the verdict of the trade journal CHIP, which has crowned Swisscom overall winner in its latest mobile network test for the fourth year in a row. In addition to the overall victory, Swisscom also came out on top in the two key categories ‘mobile Internet’ and ‘LTE network’. “I am proud that we have succeeded in winning all the important mobile network tests this year,” said Christoph Aeschlimann, Swisscom CTO & CIO. “This latest win in the CHIP test means a lot to us; it demonstrates that we have the best network in Switzerland and are ready to take it to a new level with 5G.”

5G for Switzerland

Swisscom is driving the expansion of the 5G and 4G+/LTE advanced network together with partner Ericsson. Swisscom’s 4G/LTE network now covers 99% of the Swiss population. More than 95% can now surf at speeds of up to 300 Mbit/s, 72% at speeds of up to 500 Mbit/s and approximately 27% at speeds of 700 Mbit/s.
