Architects, contractors and electricians

Swisscom offers architects, contractors and electricians a variety of options to add the telecommunications solutions of the future to your building project as early as the planning stage.

When a new building is connected to the fibre optics network, this results in numerous benefits for the owner as well as the residents:

  • You benefit from the most up-to-date connections in Switzerland with ultra-fast data transmission and attractive services.
  • A fibre optics connection sets the property clearly apart from comparable buildings and enhances its appeal.
  • Homes are connected according to OFCOM guidelines, which include connection with four fibres per home. Residents can therefore opt for the provider of their choice.

Notify Swisscom of your building project

In selected areas Swisscom is upgrading apartments and new buildings with fibre optics. You can tell Swisscom about your building project using our contact form to save the costs for multiple connections with copper and coax.


Please write “New building in fibre optics development area, connection to fibre optics network desired” in the comments field.
