Universal service ensures that the whole of Switzerland has access to the fixed-telephone network and broadband Internet. In addition, Swisscom provides every household with fixed-line access and a free listing in the telephone directory, as well as Internet access with a free router. Find out more about services and options.
The purpose of the Federal Office of Communications’ universal service is to guarantee that every Swiss household has access to telephony and Internet services. Having been awarded the universal service licence, Swisscom provides fixed network telephony (IP) and broadband Internet as a rule with a minimum download speed of 10 Mbit/s and an upload speed of 1 Mbit/s.
For approximately two percent of homes, it is not possible to provide Internet access with the required minimum transmission speed. To guarantee universal service provision for these homes in spite of this, Swisscom offers a mobile and satellite solution. Swisscom provides the equipment required for quick and easy installation. For further information, call the free hotline on 0800 800 800.
Your ISDN device will continue to work with IP. With the Swisscom Line basic telephony package and the option for 2 additional phone numbers, you will receive a special router with an ISDN interface. This will enable you to keep your existing telephone. However, Swisscom advises against the use of ISDN telephones in combination with the new IP fixed network telephony since customers cannot benefit from all the advantages of IP telephony, such as HD Voice. Swisscom cannot guarantee that additional device-specific ISDN features and non-telephony ISDN devices, such as alarm systems, will work properly.
