Re: Delivery time for Salt/Init7 equipment

View Post
We are arriving in Zurich on April 1, and would like to have internet set up ASAP once we arrive. Init7 says it can take up to 4-6 weeks to set up, and Salt requires a number on the fiber plug to start the process (which we won't have until we get into the apartment).
Salt setup duration has been described by users to lay between 1-8 weeks. Best chances to get a fast start, based on the posts about the topic, is if there is no current other provider servicing that apartment, so to say there is a ground zero to build up upon and there is no switch to execute.
Salt also relies entirely on renting the fibre that has been laid down by the local electric company (=EWZ), while init7 sometimes lays down own fibres, so probably also here advantage salt.

Anyway to book either salt or init7 you must be sure there is fiber in the apartment with the OTO fiber plug already installed. This OTO plug has a number on it, should be known to the landlord.

And either your apartment has already been connected with fiber completely up to the OTO plug, or not at all. AFAIK there is no variety in between, so IMO the suggestion above "just to call an electrician" is wrong/not feasible.
