Internet connection in the area of Wädenswil

Hi all,

We have just moved from Zürich to Au ZH and I have not managed to make the internet work. We have our subscription with cablecom and that's what the previous family used to have as well...


Is there anyone in the forum who lives in the area? Any other provider I could use in case that cablecom doesn't solve the issue?

Thanks!

I live in the area and have Cablecom and it works a treat.

What do Cablecom say when you speak to them?

Thanks for your quick reply. They said they might need to send a technician because the signal seems to be very weak. I receive Tv, but no internet or phone...


There is no option for fiber optic in the area yet, right?

We are also in Wadenswil/Au (welcome!) and have cablecom. We had to call them to get the box set up correctly, but they were very efficient and helpful. Have you called them?

Thanks! We also moved to Au! Nice area and suprinsingly full of English speakers!
If Cablecom works for you too, it must only be something with the settings...
Not having internet has helped at least to do more unpacking!

Re: Internet connection in the area of Wädenswil

We had one small hiccup in the beginning- either internet or cable worked fine, but not both. We ended up swapping the box for a different one (my husband is the technical one, he did all of that whatnot) and we needed a signal extender to boost the signal to the upper floor of our home. Once all was said and done, we have not had any problems and the service has been excellent. Hopefully they will be able to get a technician out asap so that you can get everything sorted.

I'm a relative newcomer to the area, but holler if you need any help locating things in Wadenswil!

No, no fibre but I get 100Mb/S which is plenty fast enough.
