Mobile or satellite Internet

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.

Satellite solution

The two-way satellite solution can usually be installed quickly and easily. In some communities, a building permit is required for the installation of satellite equipment. Please check whether this is necessary in your community. We will be happy to provide assistance with your project.

Continue to use ISDN telephones

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.
