Hi there
Moving to a new place, and after a one stop shop for all data. Recommendations for a reliable, reasonably priced provider appreciated.
Thanks!

Well, there are cablecom, swisscom, sunrise and the fiberglass suppliers.
Whats your budget per month ?

I would choose between swisscom and cablecom.

I originally was going to go with Sunrise because their prices seemed to be the cheapest. After going into the shop, I found out that I would have to wait 4 weeks to get my internet all set up! At first someone would have to come (after 1 or 2 weeks) to see that I had the right connection and the proper box (can't remember what it was called) in my apartment building, and then wait another week or two for the router and everything to arrive in the mail.

I ended up going with upc cablecom for everything and was extremely happy. They gave me the router and everything I needed the day I went into the shop, so was able to set up everything at my apartment that very same day. Even got a nice letter in the mail from the upc employee I spoke with in the mail thanking me for signing up and thanking me for discussing our mutual connections with Canada - I grew up there and he has family there who he hasn't visited in some time.

So, ups cablecom get's my vote!

Re: Wifi-TV-mobile provider recommended? (Basel)

I had a horrible experience with sunrise/salt, but that could also happen at swisscom or cablecom. the pitfalls to be aware of are:
- Accessibility/connectivity: Not all houses are well connected to the glasfibre network. I had to pay sunrise 150 installation cost plus 45 so-called "material cost" for installation. However, there was no additional "material" installed in my house. Ended up fighting with Sunrise on this issue...
- Length of contact: Some providers require a downpayment for e.g. installation/setup, but are cheaper in the long-run. Think of how long you want to stay at your place.
- TV offering: Here there is still some diversity in the quality and scope of offering amongst the different players. Swisscom offers very good premium packages, with long replay periods and all that new fancy stuff. Also something you may want to consider...
