Re: More bandwidth and lower prices from Swisscom DSL

But bluewin does not provide the speed it claims in many parts of Switzerland. e.g. For 49SF(standard DSL) one is supposed to get a minimum download speed of 1200, in many places one gets a maxmum of around 300.

With mini DSL(34SF) one is supposed to get a minimum download speed of 300, in many places one gets around 100!
In other words, with standard(49SF) one gets the maximum speed of around 300 !! which is equivalent of the minimum download speed of MINIDSL (34SF). And for mini DSL also one gets a maximum of 100-130 ( a third of the minimum and a tenth of the max.of claimed speed of dowload!!

Test your speed with Speed and see where you stand. You may get surprise how bluewin overcharges. Then you may wish to contact bluewin-of course you may not get a satisfactory answer!!
