Mobile communications and 5G
5G makes the mobile network faster, more reliable and more powerful than ever before. It opens up new opportunities for how we live together. For the economy and for Switzerland. But 5G has also raised fears among some sections of the public. So, what are the issues and what is Swisscom’s position?
Basic service provision
Influenced by the coronavirus pandemic, parliament rapidly raised basic service provision in Switzerland to 80 Mbit per second, making it the only country in the world to do so. The policy paper sets out what needs to be considered from Swisscom’s point of view.
When it comes to the critical infrastructure network, there is always a lot to discuss. security, expansion and availability are just a few of the issues. We publish discussion posts here when they arise.
Data usage is increasing all the time. The mobile network cannot keep pace. Maximising the use of Switzerland’s stringent precautionary values would alleviate the situation considerably and make the networks more robust for the future. Total length of video 03:30 min.
