I came to this thread as I got another mail from UPC-Cablecom with notification that they are going to increase my bandwidth from 125 to 250 Mbit and therefore increase my monthly abo for another 4CHF.
4chf sound not that much, but this is not the first time they behave like this. And basically, I believe I don't need more than 20-30 Mbit/s and for sure 250 Mbit/s is way too much for me. Internet speed test on my laptop via wi-fi shows that I use only 6-20 Mbit/s.
At next step I discovered that cablecom charges monthly additionally 30 chf (in 2016 it will be 34 chf http://www.upc-cablecom.ch/de/immobi...einden/preise/
) for using their 3-in-1 socket. This price is hidden in the Nebenkosten (https://support.upc-cablecom.ch/app/...etail/a_id/151
Good news is that in my area since some months fiberglass connection is available. But I definitely have no any other socket (should it be OTO?) except cablecom's one in my apartment.
Can somebody share his/her experience with switching from cablecom to fibre provider? Do they use cablecom's socket? Do they install a new socket in apartment? What are the costs/procedure to do it if so? Did you succeed to cancel charges for the cablecom's 3-in-one socket (http://www.upc-cablecom.ch/de/tools/...-basisangebot/
