Re: UPC Cablecom 90 CHF "Frais Regulaires" for cable connection

Cablecom charge a fee, around 25Fr a month, just for the connection. Crazy. That means internet costs, say, 35Fr (5MB) plus 25FR each month. Compare that to 10-15 for this in the UK.

Usually the 25Fr/month connection fee is in the apartment rent (nebenkosten). Some people here will swear blind that it doesn't exist, but it does, they are either paying it without realising, getting away with it, or (a new one), waiting for Cablecom to bill them.

Of course, your 90Fr could be for something totally different! :-)
