What does this type of expansion mean?

  1. Fibre optics (FTTH – Fiber to the Home)
    Swisscom is expanding the fibre optic network right to your home or office. This end-to-end optical fibre cable enables data transmission of up to 1000 Mbit/s.
  2. Fibre-optic technology (FTTB/S – Fiber to the Bulding/Street)
    Swisscom is taking the optical fibre cable right to your cellar or street. The section to your property/premises will continue to use the existing copper line. Swisscom can achieve bandwidths of up to 500 Mbit/s with fibre-optic technology.
  3. New technology (FTTC – Fiber to the Curb)
    Swisscom is taking the optical fibre cable to the cabinet outside your property. The section to your property/premises will still use the previous copper line. Swisscom can achieve bandwidths of up to 100 Mbit/s with the new technology.






More speed

The Internet speed comparison lets you see how fast data transmission really is, based on actual examples.



Switching subscription

Depending on the subscription you have now, you may have to switch your subscription if you want to take advantage of the faster Internet service.

Schedule

Unfortunately we cannot provide an exact expansion date at the start of the work. If technical difficulties occur during construction or there are objections from the community or property owners, it can lead to delays in network expansion. As expansion progresses we will be able to estimate the completion date more accurately.
