Re: UPC, Swisscom or init7

Simply not true. Swisscom itself, its discounter Wingo also offer "best speed available on copper". And I'm pretty sure other provider do also, as all of them simply rent the line from Swisscom.
If you're forced on copper IMO init7 barely makes sense, as other provider likely offer the same "best effort" at a better price in one of the several "special offers".
At some point in the transmission you are handed over to the init7 network and infrastructure. This can actually be as soon as when your copper lines comes into the exchange. It is theoretically possible that init7 has its own hardware and and DSL modems in the local exchange.

In the past the provider actually must had its own hardware as Swisscom refused to offer a bit stream access.

You seem to be another of their victims in believing their mouthy claims of "advantages", like their urban legend that they would offer a "dedicated line" on fiber.
Not urban legend but exactly how, at least the züri.net, fiber network operates.
