Swisscom has constantly won mobile phone network tests carried out by independent measuring companies for many years. Together with its strategic partner Ericsson, Swisscom won all relevant network tests carried out by Ookla and Chip in 2018 and 2019. Swisscom wins connect magazine's mobile phone network test for the tenth time. This underscores the fact that Swisscom has been offering its customers the best mobile phone network for years. Swisscom wins in all the main categories of Voice, Data and Crowd and is the test winner with 974 out of 1000 possible points and a rating as "outstanding".


Connect magazine writes in its report on the mobile phone network test: "Among the two outstanding Swiss network operators, [...] Swisscom, the market leader, comes out once again on top this year. The provider outperforms its closest rival Sunrise in all three test categories." Christoph Aeschlimann, CTIO of Swisscom, added: "This is the result of the work of our dedicated employees, who do everything in their power to ensure that customers are well connected at all times and everywhere and can place their trust in Swisscom."

5G and 4G+ expansion on track

Swisscom continues to expand its mobile phone network, and it also increased 4G+ coverage in 2019 by 32% to 72% of the Swiss population at speeds of up to 450 Mbps. In addition, it has been rolling out 5G in Switzerland since April 2019; to date, 160 municipalities are fully or partially covered by 5G. Swisscom differentiates here between 5G-fast (lower coverage with up to 2 Gbit/s or more) and 5G-wide (Swiss-wide 5G coverage with up to 1 Gbit/s).
