I'm in the same situation as you. Just moved here and was hoping to be able to get "naked DSL"...however there is a slight work-around with Swisscom.

If you have a mobile phone subscription with them, and the per month rate is over CHF 26, you aren't required to get a fixed line.

So I'll probably get their DSL + NATEL PRO package.

I've also placed an inquiry to VTX which is based in Pully. They are offering the same speed internet (20,000/2,000) as Swisscom but at CHF 38/mo. including modem rental. Whether I can get it as a package with an Orange mobile phone (as VTX is a reseller for Orange) we shall see. Really disinterested in a fixed line.

I'll keep you posted.

P.S. Cablecom is a no go for my address in Lausanne...don't know about yours.
P.P.S. I'm foregoing TV altogether and just using the internet for media content.
Hey yeah nice offer! I didn't know about it.
I have been checking and it looks like a nice deal.
Nevertheless, with citycable (in lausanne) it's cheaper as you pay 27 + 30 = 57 CHF monthly for the internet + HD TV with so many international channels. Which is good for me too.
Now I have to check if it works in my apartment...
