5G for Switzerland

The best network.
Now with 5G.

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.

Where 5G has gone live.

We are bringing 5G to the city, the country and everywhere in between. 90% of the Swiss population already enjoys 5G.






St. Moritz




Swisscom provides up to 1 Gbit/s of fast 5G to 90% of the Swiss population. We are also constantly expanding the 5G+ network to provide speeds of up to 2 Gbit/s.

The benefits of 5G


Surfing speed

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.


Response time

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.


Decentralised cloud

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


Network slicing

5G can provide individual applications with flexible network capacities, as might be required by the emergency services during a major incident for example.

5G visions

5G for companies

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.
