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

Thanks for the info! Upon closer examination it looks like a quarterly bill for October through December, aprox. 25 CHF a month, as you say.

This is strange. We've had the cable since March but have not received any bill like this before. Does anyone know if it is supposed to be each household or the entire building that pays for this charge? (It's also lame that UPC doesn't quote this in their rates, right?)

So, I will also contact the gerance (landlord company) to make sure that they are not already paying this for my building.

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! :-)
