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.
Erm, no they don't. Swisscom offer S, M and L internet with defined max line speeds.

L is fibre appropriate with a 10Gbit/s max download speed, M is presumably for those like myself on a half decent DSL connection with a 200 Mbit/s max download speed. S has an even lower cap.

As others have noted some ISPs also do more than just rent lines from Swisscom and have to use their own hardware at exchanges etc. so it's perfectly feasible to get different offers to the same address.

If I'm being taken for a ride then it's a very comfy one as the service remains good. I'll be sure to come crying to you the moment it all goes wrong so you can say I told you so
